Lyrics

River of Blood (Guns and Jesus) Rick Demers

At the candlelight vigil to heal the wounds
Words can’t express, “they died too soon”
A familiar scene, one’s worse dream
You‘d think by now we’d be immune

River of blood flows through this land
Not made by God, made by man
We love our guns in the USA
If Jesus came back what would he say?

Hey my hunter friend can we talk plain
Do you need 500 rounds to bag your game?
Don’t want to take your guns, or spoil your sportsman’s’ fun
But to have no rules is plain insane

We get one shot at this here life
Let’s start there when talking right
It could be you who mourns and weeps tonight?

Hey you in congress you’re the smoking gun
Taking blood money from the lobby scum
Our kids each day put in harm’s way
Pick up your pen and save just one

River of blood flows through this land
Not made by God, made by man
We love our guns in the USA
If Jesus came back …. There’d be…. hell to pay…hell to pay
