Straight Shooter
by David Kraai

A bullet ricocheted off the wall and landed at my feet
Just like lies and half-truths you'll find 'em on every street
Nowadays folks will look you dead in the eye
Tell you just what you wanna hear right up until you die

So, I try to
Be a straight shooter
Shooting from the hip
You only get to live this once
Better open up your lips
And be a
Straight
A straight shooter

I picked up that bullet and put it in my pocket
Life will keep coming at you, ain't nothing you can do to stop it
Now, games were good and fun when we were kids running through the sun
But these lines and grey hairs, I keep track of every one

So, I try to
Be a straight shooter
Shooting from the hip
You only get to live this once
Better open up your lips
And be a
Straight
Straight shooter

Come on you straight shooters
And let me hear you say
All those things need fixing
We could put 'em back the right way
But, no matter where you go
As long as you've got some heart or soul
Yes, we need to know
That you can show that you are a...

Straight shooter
Shooting from the hip
We only get to live this once
Better open up our lips
And be a
Straight
A straight shooter
A straight shooter
