lyrics

Whoa, if John Lennon had a gun
Whoa, if John Lennon had a gun
He'd still be livin' singing “all you need is love”

Oh if he'd given peace a chance
Oh pulled a piece on each crazy fan
Shot that coward Caulfield in the back

Now the lone gunman is never alone
And a man without sin fills his pockets with stones
Woe that the world shoulda come to this
That we'd pray for a man to put the “fist” in “pacifist”

Whoa, if John Lennon had a gun
Whoa, if John Lennon had a gun
He'd still be livin' singing “all you need is love”

Woe if Gandhi pulled a knife
Woe if Reverend King took a life
If Jesus Christ had enough and just rained down fire

If John Lennon had a gun
If John Lennon had a gun
If John Lennon had a gun
Those Dakota steps would be stained with another man's blood
If John Lennon had a gun

Matt Blick Nottingham, UK

Songwriter/singer from Nottingham, UK. Like early inspiration Billy Bragg, Matt sings in his real accent and plays electric guitar (there’s more tuba than acoustic guitar on his songs). He plays like someone who spent more time in mosh pits than coffee shops and sings about faith and doubt, love and loss, airports and abattoirs. ... more
