Shotgun
Jr. Walker & The All Stars Lyrics


I said shotgun shoot 'em 'fore he run now do the jerk baby do the jerk now.
(Hey).
Put on your red dress and then you go down yonder.
I said buy yourself a shotgun now, were gonna break it down baby now.
We're gonna load it up baby now 'a then you shoot 'em 'fore he run now.

I said shotgun shoot 'em 'fore he run now do the jerk baby do the jerk now.
(Hey).

I said shotgun shoot 'em 'fore he run now do the jerk baby do the jerk now.
(Hey).
I said Put on your high-heeled shoes.
I said we're goin' down here and I listen to 'em play the blues.
We're gonna dig potatoes, we're gonna pick tomatoes.
I said shotgun shoot 'em 'fore he run now do the jerk baby do the jerk now.
(Hey).

I f*cking LOVE this song.

The first time I ever heard it was maybe '84 (I would have been about 10). It was on Thanksgiving or Christmas, at my grandmother's place. The whole family would go there for holidays.

Anyway, my very loud, very boistrous aunt mentioned it in some random anecdote about when they were all young, and I said I didn't know the song.

Her eyes lit up, and she jumped at the chance to indoctrinate me, and immediately started singing it, very loud and very badly. It was AWESOME.

She died some time ago, and quite young, and we weren't really close at all, but everytime I hear this song I think about her.

My father passed away on April 23rd this year he was 90. Today he would've been 91 and this was his favorite song. I came here today to play this song in his honor and to share that story. One love and happy birthday dad πŸŽ‚

I was born in 62 and this song was played on the radio all through the sixties and seventies. Pure Motown is what this is. Some songs make a gouge through history. This is one of them.
