"I Feel Like A Bullet (In The Gun Of Robert Ford)" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
Like a corn in a field I cut you down
I threw the last punch too hard
After years of going steady, well I thought that it was time
To throw in my hand for a new set of cards

And I can't take you dancing out on the weekend
I figured we'd painted too much of this town
And I tried not to look as I walked to my wagon
And I knew then I had lost what should have been found
I knew then I had lost what should have been found

And I feel like a bullet in the gun of Robert Ford
I'm low as a paid assassin is
You know I'm cold as a hired sword
I'm so ashamed can't we patch it up
You know I can't think straight no more
You make me feel like a bullet honey in the gun of Robert Ford

Like a child when his toys have been stepped on
That's how it all seemed to me
I burst the bubble that both of us lived in
And I'm damned if I'll ever get rid of this guilt that I feel

And if looks could kill then I'd be a dead man
Your friends and mine don't call no more
Hell, I thought it was best but now I feel branded
Breaking up's sometimes like breaking the law
Breaking up's sometimes like breaking the law

    General CommentThis is actually probably more about Bernie's failed relationship with Maxine.

    General CommentWell it is a pretty simple meaning. Robert Ford killed Jesse James and history has viewed Ford as a coward since he did shoot James with his back to him. Elton feels like a bullet in the gun of Robert Ford because he breaks up with this girls and he feels guilty for it or like he betryaed his spouse. Ford was James's partner and felt this same guilt that Elton feels for breaking up. He is so ashamed and distraught from it that he actually wants to get back together or in Fords case go back in time.
