Under the gun

Words & music by Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover and Ian Gillan

Infidel, can you hear? Would be strange delight
I need you to give your sympathy tonight
When you hear what I say, deeds I've done
Realise I've never lost and never won

I've got a feeling that it's never right
There was a reason but it's out of sight ah
It's going down somewhere tonight
Under the gun

Put death in my hand, learn to fight
Who could care if it's wrong or if it's right?
We got no choice under command
We're ordered to die or take this land

Stupid bastards and religious freaks
So safe in their castle keeps
They turn away as a mother weeps
Under the gun

When brave men fall under crimson skies
There's a sadness reflected in a soldier's eyes
Tears will dry for those I kill
Remember no more their names but someone will

The only way to be victorious
Screw the fools who think it's glorious
Who gives a toss about the likes of us
Under the gun
