"God & Guns" as written by and Bud Tower Danny T. Meadows....
Last night I heard this politician
Talking 'bout his brand new mission
'Liked his plans, but they came undone when he got around with God and guns

I don't know how he grew up
But it sure wasn't down at the hunting club
Cause if it was he'd understand a little bit more about the working man

God and guns
Keep us strong
That's what this country
Was founded on
Well we might as well give up and run
If we let them take our God and guns

I'm here in my back of the woods
Where God is great and guns are good
You really can't know that much about 'em
If you think we're better off without 'em

Well there was a time we ain't forgot
You caressed all night with the doors unlocked
But there ain't nobody save no more
So you say your prayers and you thank the lord

For that peacemaker
In the dresser drawer

God and guns (God and guns)
Keep us strong
That's what this country, lord
Was founded on
Well we might as well give up and run,
If we let 'm take our God and guns.
Yea we might as well give up and run,
If we let 'm take our God and guns!

Yeah
Oh
God and guns

Don't let 'em take
Don't you let 'em take
Don't let 'em take
Our God and guns

Oh God and guns
Ye keep us strong
That's what this country, lord
Was founded on
Well we might as well give up and run,
If we let 'm take our God and guns!

Wohoho
God and guns
Wohohoo
Oh

    General CommentNot bad on the lyrics. A few mistakes.
    "For that peacemaker
    In the dresser drawer"
    This is a great song. Its my favorite off the new album so far and its soo true. If we let these crappy ignorant politicians take our God and Guns then we are screwed. Have them come out here and live with my family for a month and we will show them what their big ideas mean to us.

    General Comment"You caressed all night with the doors unlocked "....shouldn't it be
    "you could rest all night with your doors unlocked"......

    also

    "But there ain't nobody save no more" should be safe instead ov save.

    All in all an awesome song...double thumbs up.

    General CommentThis must be the stupidest lyrics ever written. They can't be serious. Why are they using Lynyrd Skynyrd's name putting out this crap?

    General CommentWith lyrics like this as the mantra of the "new" Lynyrd Skynyrd, I'm pretty sure the late, great Ronnie Van Zant is rolling over in his grave. I suggest you teabaggers read the Constitution yourselves, instead of merely suggesting the rest of us do it for you. Our mutual hero, Ronnie Van Zant, was a tree-hugging, anti-gun, anti-corporation, professor of social equality (judging from his most serious, poignant lyrics). Examples of this are......"Things Goin' On"- anti-war, anti-corporation, a cry for social equality. "Workin' For MCA"- anti-corporation. "Cry For The Bad Man"- anti-money grubbing, pro-social equality. "I'm A Country Boy"- pro-environment, tree-hugging, to each his own. "All I Can Do Is Write About It"- pro-environment, tree-hugging. "Lend A Helpin' Hand"- a cry for social equality. And the most popular of all, "Saturday Night Special"- anti-gun ("hand guns are made for killin', Ain't no good for nothin' else, And if you like to drink your whiskey, You might even shoot yourself, So why don't we dump 'em people, To the bottom of the sea, Before some 'ol fool come around here, Wanna shoot either you or me"). So why don't y'all re-read the Constitution, and when you're finished, go back and read the "original" Skynyrd lyrics. See if you find any that agree with your gun-totin', "shoot first ask questions later", "live poor vote rich" mentality. Then get back to me with your results.

    General CommentI agree with the first poster. Hearing Skynyrd play a Republican anthem like this is a disgrace. I kept thinking there would be a twist in the lyrics and they really weren't advocating a gun-toting America but no that's it. What a volte face for the band. I have no idea who their target audience is but I can't imagine Skynyrd fans appreciating this sh!t
