8 thoughts on “Grand Funk Railroad – Don’t Let ‘Em Take Your Gun

  1. This song needs to blast several times a day in the halls of Congress while every person there sits, doing nothing else, no distractions, listening very intently.

    I propose anyone running for a position, swear an oath as part of their duty, before being elected, to listen to “Don’t Let Em Take Your Gun. If they miss one playing of the song, they are immediately terminated.

  2. Play “Don’t Let ‘Em …”
    “Don’t Let ‘Em Take Your Gun”

    Ohhh, people why don’t you come in here and let me talk to you a while.
    That’s right, step right up and listen to a concerned citizen speak his piece.

    I’ll tell you a little something that my daddy told to me.
    My basic fundamentals if you want to be free.
    ’cause son, there’s somthing wrong internally.
    So, if you want your freedom son.
    Don’t want your country to be overrun.
    You got to keep america number one.

    My daddy told me “son, don’t let ’em take your gun.
    That’s what they tryin’ to do.
    Son, don’t let ’em take your gun.
    They’re takin’ your bill of rights away from you.”
    My daddy said “son, don’t let ’em take your gun.
    That’s what they tryin’ to do.
    Son, don’t let ’em take your gun.
    Don’t let ’em take your gun away from you.”

    Ohhh, this year is our anniversary.
    Two hundred years, people we’ve been free.
    Won’t be nobody takin’ over our land.
    If everybody’s brother’s got a gun in his hand.
    I’m tellin’ you we learned to fight for justice.
    We’re willing to die for freedom.
    Hand in hand.
    You got to understand.
    We are american men.

    Said they want your gun.
    Said they want your gun.
    Send ’em on the run.
    Send ’em on the run.
    Hip-hurray for fun.
    Hip-hurray for fun.
    If they do we’re done.
    If they do we’re done.

    1. Thanks, Martist. 😀 😀 😀
      I thought I had the lyrics combined with the post. OOPS!
      Appreciate you catching it for me. 😀

      1. Haha! You’re very welcome, Angel! 🙂 You’re usually spot on with lyric follow-up and I didn’t mean to warm yer seat since you are so consistent with helpful lyrics postings. Always makes it easier to catch the gist, so for that I thank YOU!

        1. 😀 😀 😀
          You can warm my seat any time. LOL I can’t catch ’em all. 😉
          Thanks again.

          1. HAHA!!! LOL!! 🙂 You seriously do a great service with that. I am a reader and not a video watcher usually, and I have difficulty interpreting some lyrics sometimes. Time management I guess?! I know I miss out on some good stuff if I can’t grasp it all and some lines are very poignant.
