Cannon
The White Stripes Lyrics


Outside
My door
Unlocked
I'm lookin'
At this sound
That chime out of nowhere
Yeah, nowhere
Whoo
Wheels turnin'
Scratchin'
And burnin'
Yeah
I fought guns
Tanks
Cannon
Cannon
Yeah
Tell me who's that writin'
John the revelator
Tell me who's that writin'
John the revelator
Tell me who's that writin'
John the revelator
Wrote the book on the seven seas
Christ went down on Easter mornin'
Mary mother went down to see it
Gotta tell my disciples to meet me in Galilee
Who's writin'
John the revelator
Tell me who's that writin'
John the revelator
Tell me who's that writin'
John the revelator
Wrote the book on the seven seas
Hey
Whoo
Lord above
I command
I've been evil
Evil
Yeah
Evil

This is still my favourite White Stripes song, so underated

Sam Eineichner

I say that until I run into another one I forgot about. They are so good

BruhFish

I love this album for so many reasons. How unpolished, raw, powerful, heavy it is. Sounds so good and is a very underrated album in general.

Bibi Tralala

I agree. I think I listened it more than Elephant. I like the garage style, more raw energy.

Cannon is a play with words. Means both the gun and the chosen Christian books that are accepted to be true and right. The song has obvious reference to the Bible, but what many might miss is that it's tribute to Son House, one of jack white's favourite blues players. Man feels good playing that song on guitar, not that hard to learn, but it's so fun to play with my headphones on

Jean Zhicay

I still can't find something to play this song loud enough. I just want to play this song on the loudest headphones or speakers that exists

@Sanic The hedgehog In reality, no. Not really.😂

@Sephiroth5200 still not enough tbh

Plug your phone into a guitar amplifier. The neighbors a half a mile away will hear it.🤘

The year was 2002. I was eating up 'White Blood Cells' like any other indie kid at the time. I needed more from this band! I went out and got 'De Stijl' but I couldn't find their self-titled debut anywhere. On a school trip to Boston, I made up some excuses to visit Newbury Comics not far from Fenway. Finding a good record store was the creme de la creme back then. At Newbury I finally found this album, as well as Rapture's 2nd EP. I cannot describe to you what it felt like to find this gem and can especially not put into words what it felt to hear this for the first time not sure what I was going to get out of the CD. What a time to be alive!
