Gimme Shelter
Stone Sour Lyrics


Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost it's way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

Corey Taylor's voice is POWERFUL. Lizzy Hale comes in screamin on the back up. Who says rock is dead? This shit is dope.

Since this song is my favorite song ever recorded I was reluctant to listen to this cover in fear of the song being ruined. You had some big shoes to fill and you filled them and walked in them with awesome stride. You stayed true to the original but put your own little tewsts on it. You honored Rolling Stones with an awesome cover. Awesome work!
