Little princess
High in your ivory tower
Feel the breeze begin to turn
From sweet into sour
There's a black wind blowing
There's a shadow on the rise
Daddy was a good man
'Til the devil saw him fly

Daddy's got a gun
Daddy's got a gun
Daddy's got a gun

Daughter dear, come near
Let me kiss your face once more
Close your ears from the thunder
Your eyes from the breakin' dawn
Daddy was a good man
His bounty set us free
We are his possessions
He should fall
So shall we

Daddy's got a gun
Daddy's got a gun
Daddy's got a gun

Things I've given
The things I'll take away
Not my love
Not my love
Things I've given
The things I'll take away
Not my love
Not my love

Imagine a gold rose
The finest on the bush
Cruel to see the perfect bloom
Grow withered, old and crushed
Better still to cut that rose
And cast upon the sea
Immortalise it's glory
Ever more will be

Daddy's got a gun
Daddy's got a gun
Daddy's got a gun

Things I've given
The things I'll take away
Not my love
Not my love
Things I've given
The things I'll take away
Not my love
Not my love

Still here
Still here
I'll always be here

Still here
Still here
I'll always be here
