Gun Shy Lyrics - 10,000 Maniacs

I always knew that you would take yourself far from home 

As soon as, as far as, you could go 

By the quarter inch cut of your hair and the Army issue pay 

For the past eight weeks I can tell where you've been 

 

For I knew, I could see, it was all cut and dried to me 

There was soldier's blue blood streaming inside your veins 

There is a world outside of this room 

And when you meet it promise me 

You won't meet it with your gun 

 

So now you are one of the brave few 

It's awfully sad we need boys like you 

I hope the day never comes 

For here's your live round son 

Stock and barrel, safety trigger, here's your gun 

 

Well I knew, I could see, it was all cut and dried to me 

There was soldiers blue blood streaming inside your veins 

There is a world outside of this room 

And when you meet it promise me 

You won't meet it with your gun taking aim 

 

For I don't mean to argue 

They've made a decent boy of you 

And I don't mean to spoil your homecoming 

But baby brother you should expect me to 

 

"Stock and barrel, safety trigger, here's your gun" 

So now does your heart pitter pat, with a patriotic song 

When you see the stripes of old glory waving? 

 

Well I knew, I could see, it was all cut and dried to me 

There was soldier's blue blood streaming inside your veins 

There is a world outside of this room 

And when you meet it promise me 

You won't meet it with your gun taking aim 

 

Well, I don't mean to argue, they've made a decent boy of you 

And I don't mean to spoil your homecoming, my baby brother Jude 

Oh, I don't mean to hurt you by saying this again 

They're so good at making soldiers but they're not as good at making men
