John Mayer - Badge And Gun Lyrics




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
Man, I've been hiding here for seven months or so

Hand me down my coat and 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

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 calling over those hills

John Mayer Badge And Gun Comments
  1. Shin Tuấn Thành

    Give 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 ole' 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

    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 my badge and gun
    Give me the road that I may run
    Give me that peaceful, wandering free I used to know
    A 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

  38. Alb Chan

    By far my favorite song on this album :D

  39. Michael Jenkins

    I disagree, he has the perfect voice for it.

  40. TeamBootleggers

    Would be alot better if Don Williams or someone with a relaxing voice sang it. Johns pop voice just cant reach the songs potential.

    Tomás Sousa

    He doesn't have a pop voice, he has one of the most beautiful voices out there, and this song is one of the few where he can really show off how good he can sing

    ted lauren

    TeamBootleggers his voice can sing it just fine

  41. hellojane
