"Gone Shootin'" as written by and Malcolm Mitchell Young Angus Mckinnon Young....
Feel the pressure rise
Hear the whistle blow
Bought a ticket of her own accord
To, I don’t know

Packed your heart in a travellin' bag
And never said bye bye
Something missing in the neighborhood
Of her cryin' eyes

I stirred my coffee with the same spoon
Knew her favorite tune
Gone shootin'
My baby's gone shootin'

Wrapped herself around
Like a second skin
Backed her favorite nag
But she could never win
I took an offer in another town
She took another pill
She was runnin' in an overdrive
A victim of overkill

She never made it past the bedroom door
What was she aiming for?

Gone shootin'
She's gone
Gone, gone, gone

Gone shootin'
My baby's gone shootin'
Look out, woo
(Gone shootin') How am I gonna get her down?
(Gone shootin') Ow, look out, look out, look out
(Gone shootin') I shouldn't get in her way
(Gone shootin') Ah, she sure is loaded
(Gone shootin') She's gone, gone, gone, gone, she's gone
(Gone shootin')

I used to love her so

    General Commentthis song makes me sad sometimes. I think it reflects on how his girlfriend was unhappy, and her misery drove her to drugs, which led to overdose or suicide. Very sad. A lovely classic early Bon Scott song though. Love those bluesy guitars!

    General Commentyeah this song kicks ass. I first heard it on the movie Beavis and Butthead, and I thought that sounds like the one and only AC/DC

    General CommentYeah, herion addiction as previously stated. Seems to be a woman that is so addicted that she's unwilling to give it up for a new opportunity (in another town)
