Gun Sale At The Church
(Written by Buddy Blue)

Well let's pack up the kids
and take a break, get away
leave the hustle and bustle
of living from day to day
and I know that the crime
in the city is getting worse

So I'm going on down to
the gun sale at the church

Well my lady's all set
to have us a real good time
Baby Johnny got fins
but he don't seem to mind
so the family’s all ready
to pray
at the holy perch

That's set up in the middle of
the gun sale at the church

Well we'll ask the lord to
forgive us for all our sins
and we'll look at the latest in
gold plated firing pins

Well my two main men are
Jesus and old John Birch

So I'm going on down to
the gun sale at the church

Well we'll ask the lord to
forgive us for all our sins
and we'll look at the latest in
gold plated firing pins

Well let's pack up the kids
and take a break, get away
leave the hustle and bustle
of living from day to day
and I know that the crime
in the city is getting worse

So I'm going on down to
the gun sale at the church

So I'm going on down to
the gun sale at the church

So I'm going on down to
the gun sale at the church

  4. anonymous: Thanks, I have made the corrections.

    I'm still not sure about baby Johnny's "bends". Ah well, he might be a deep sea diver.

  5. I've listened and I get

    "Baby Johnnie's got fins"

    ala something like thalidomide induced birth defects (although considering the population they're referring to in the song I'd say it would be more like genetic deficiencies created by rampant inbreeding)
