It's A Killer




(G. Rossington, J.& D. Van Zant, E. King)




There's a rumour goin' 'round on the backside of town

Jake is out to get some revenge

Has fire in his eyes since his brother died

Shot down by a so-called friend


For a fifty dollar gram is what the neighbors say

Drugs had control of his life

Caught up on crack you're tryin' to think back

The devil had him hooked you could see it in his eyes

It's a killer


There's a cold house at the corner of the street

The kids come and go there at night

Jerry drove up in front of the house

Somebody pulled out a knife

Jerry freaked out and went for his gun

Shot him right between the eyes

All he ever wanted was a twenty dollar high

But now he's locked up for the rest of his life



It's a killer there's no way out baby once your in

It's a killer steal from your family

Then you'll turn on your friends

It's a killer It can happen to you


So don't you never, never give in

It's a killer


The neighborhood I used to call home

These days it's lookin' like a war zone

Unemployment on the rise but the black market thrives

Money just keeps changin' hands

The laws are gettin' tough sometimes it's not enough

To satisfy supply and demand


Trouble breaks out there's fightin' in the streets

Bullets flyin' all around

An innocent child caught in the line of fire

All because there weren't enough drugs to go around




(repeat chorus)


(repeat chorus)
