Badge And Gun - Album Version

Lyricist: John Mayer    Composer: John Mayer


Give me my badge and gun Give me the road that I may run
Give me that peaceful, wandering free I used to know
I've waited all I can But I'm just not a patient man
And I've been hiding here for seven months or so

Hand me down my golden hat And grab the winter one at that
You never know how long I'll be away

Give me my badge and gun Give me the songs that I once sung
Give me those jet-black, kick-back, lay down nights alone
This house is safe and warm But I was made to chase the storm
Taking the whole world on with big ol' empty arms

Tell my friends I tried my best That one day I just up and left
They probably saw it coming anyway (What can I say)
Hey, hey

Woah~

The lock is on the cellar door I can't remember what it's for
I ain't been down those stairs in oh so long (So), so long

Give me my badge and gun Give me the road that I must run
Give me that peaceful, wandering free I used to know
The copy of your key is hanging where it used to be
Good as you've always been to me

The life I need to lead
Is somewhere out there, callin' over those hills
