Judy Collins - Shoot First



[Intro]
N.C.
The minstrel boy to the war is gone
In the ranks of death you'll find him
His father's sword he has girded on
And his wild harp slung behind him

Dm    C    Dm     G  (2x)


[Verse 1]
Dm
Go get your guns, it's time to play
C
Let's hurry up, don't waste the day
Dm
Out in the park we'll stage a fight
C                G
Just like on the TV


[Verse 2]
Dm
You play the one who has to die
C
I'll shoot the gun and you will cry
Dm
You will fall down and I will run
C                G
Just like on the TV


[Verse 3]
Bb
My daddy has a gun for real
Am                        Dm
He says he'll teach me to use it
Bb
I'm gonna have my own someday
Am               G
Just like on the TV


[Verse 4]
Bb
My daddy told me what to do
Am         Dm
If anybody bothers you
Bb
He says the law is on our side
Dm               G
Just like on the TV


[Chorus]
             Dm           C
You've gotta shoot first, shoot first
             Dm              Am                 G
You've gotta shoot first and ask your questions later
Dm                        C
Shoot first, you've gotta shoot first
Dm                     Am                       G
Shoot first, you gotta get them before they get you


[Interlude]
Dm    C    Dm     G


[Verse 5]
Dm
My older brother has his own
C
It's got a handle made of bone
Dm
He carries it all over town
C                G
Just like on the TV


[Verse 6]
Dm
My daddy gave my mama one
C
Genuine real pearl handled gun
Dm
She says she gonna have some fun
C                G
Just like on the TV


[Verse 7]
Bb
Did you see who got shot last night?
Am             Dm
I stayed up to watch him
Bb
They rushed him off to surgery
Am                 G
Right there on the TV


[Verse 8]
Bb
Gosh, I hope they catch the guy
Am                    Dm
I think they ought to shoot him
Bb
But if they bring him in alive
Dm              G
He'll be on the TV


[Chorus]
             Dm           C
You've gotta shoot first, shoot first
             Dm              Am                 G
You've gotta shoot first and ask your questions later
Dm                        C
Shoot first, you've gotta shoot first
Dm                     Am                       G
Shoot first, you gotta get them before they get you


[Interlude]
Dm
Dm    C    Dm     G


[Verse 9]
Dm
I've gotta go, it's getting late
C
I wish I had a real gun
Dm
Then I would never be afraid
C                 G
Like some guys on TV


[Verse 10]
Dm
I'd never use my gun on you
C
You'd never have to worry
Dm
You'd be the good guy on my side
C                G
Just like on the TV


[Verse 11]
Bb
I think when I grow up someday
Am             Dm
I'm gonna be a Green Beret
Bb
I saw them sailing off to war
Am                G
Last night on the TV


[Verse 12]
Bb
My daddy says it's not a game
Am                   Dm
We've got to play to win it
Bb
He says I'll have to learn to fight
Dm               G
Just like on the TV


[Chorus]
             Dm           C
You've gotta shoot first, shoot first
             Dm              Am                 G
You've gotta shoot first and ask your questions later
Dm                        C
Shoot first, you've gotta shoot first
Dm                     Am
Shoot first, you gotta get them before they get


[Chorus]
Bb           C
Shoot first, shoot first
             Bb              Am                 G
You've gotta shoot first and ask your questions later
Bb                        C
Shoot first, you've gotta shoot first
Bb                     Am                       G      F    Em    D
Shoot first, you gotta get them before they get you


[Outro]
N.C.
"Land of song", said the warrior bard
Though all the world betrays thee
One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard
One faithful harp shall praise thee
