Gungor - God And Country Lyrics




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

    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

  5. Evija3000

    I'm a minute and 20 seconds in and I'm almost crying how much I love this.

  6. Nathan Ludwick

    go god!!!!!!! :)

  7. Natalie LaValley

    Ahh, that ending was so good! Christians wouldn't think God and guns go hand in hand if they really understood the Sermon on the Mount, I think.

  8. Zack Rathier

    easily one of the best bands ive ever heard. i seriously think these guys are my new favorite band. the fact that they mix worship with indie rolk and folk and edm. is amazing. its like a christian version of all things indie and amazing. AHHHHH God and Country is like my jam 

  9. Reid Russom

    Nice to see a Christian band following Jesus' teachings by being anti-war.

    Evija3000

    Which normal person is pro war anyway?..

    Love thy neighbor and his wife

    Evija3000 One word: politicians. Then again, you DID say normal.

    Pablo Wilkano

    Sadly, the Gungors aren't Christian, and never were.
