Overall Meaning

In “Trigger Happy Cowboy,” Anthony B tries to convince a ruthless and trigger-happy cowboy to stop shooting and killing innocent people. The song addresses the issue of gun violence while urging individuals, particularly those with guns, to exercise restraint and empathy towards others. The first verse acknowledges the cowboy's weaponry but points out that it doesn't matter, and innocent people must not continue to lose their lives. Anthony B then implores the cowboy to put down the gun in the chorus, stating that too much blood is running, which is jamming down the land.


Anthony B's strong anti-gun message continues in the second verse, where he describes a reckless and monstrous shooter who kills people indiscriminately, including his aunt, sister, and grandmother. Anthony B condemns the act and reminds him that even chanting fire on the wrong people won't erase his sins, and he should instead opt for non-violent means to bring about change. In the third verse, Anthony B warns that a violent revolution is not far away if innocent killing continues, and the whole society might unravel if people don't tread carefully.
