I was just a young girl when they sent him off to war
Barely even knew what in hell he’s fighting for
Told me all the stories of a world beyond the world
Scaled the tallest mountains, they braved a ragged sea
Lost a lot of souls just to set the captives free
May have lost a father but they found a lot of oil

Gathered up our gods
Oh, we gathered up our guns
For the love of country
For our fathers and our sons

He was just a young man when they sent him off to war
Barely even knew what in hell he’s fighting for
The battle for the land with the strangers from the east
Descending from the mountains and rising from the sea
Monsters came with vengeance and took my son from me
You can take my money, take my land, but not my son

Gathered up our God
Oh, we gathered up our guns
For the love of country
For our fathers and our sons
Lost a lot of souls, stained the killing ground with blood
Lord knows we won’t stop the fight until the battle’s won

God, we love our God
Oh, God, we love our guns
For the love of country
For our fathers and our sons
Lost a lot of souls, stained the killing ground with blood
Lord knows we won’t stop the fight until the battle’s won

Those who live by the gun, live by the gun
Die by the gun
Those who live by the gun, live by the gun
Die by the gun
