Halestorm – Jump The Gun

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Begin/End/Finish/Start.

From their 2015 album, Into The Wild Life. The song did not chart.

From Crypticrock.com

The deluxe version of Into the Wild has two bonus tracksThe first of the bonus material is  “Jump the Gun” which is is a bar slinging swing rocker of plucky guitars, funky drumbeats, and sliding piano work while Lzzy throws it down.

Jump The Gun

Boot on the start line
Pistol in the air
‘Quila in the glass and a cold dead stare
Two minutes in baby make your move
If you won’t do it I’ll do it for you
I ain’t waitin’ on you, no
I ain’t waitin’ for youI jump the gun
Oh here I go again
I’m the one
Don’t know when to say when
Here for fun I wasn’t looking for a friend
Now we’re kissing under covers and it’s all
Just because I jumped the gunCheckers on the flag
Time to pay the tab
Hoppin’ in a cab
It’s time to be bad
Cigarette smoke, lipstick on your face
My place or yours
I’m good either way
Oh babe my meter’s runnin’
Oh baby are you coming?I jump the gun
Oh here I go again
I’m the one
Don’t know when to say when
Here for fun I wasn’t looking for a friend
Now we’re kissing under covers and it’s all
Just becauseI jump the gun
Oh here I go again
I’m the one
Don’t know when to say when
Here for fun I wasn’t looking for a friend
Now we’re kissing under covers and it’s all
Just because I jumped the gunWoke up in the morning pounding in my head
Three empty bottles no sheets on the bed
Baby rolled over and this is what he said
He said, “babe I think I love you”Oh babe jump the gun
Oh here I go again
I’m the one
Don’t know when to say when
Here for fun I wasn’t looking for a friend
Now we’re kissing under covers and it’s all
Just because IJumped the gun
Oh, here I go again
I’m the one
Don’t know when to say when
Here for fun I wasn’t looking for a friend
Now we’re kissing under covers and it’s all
Just because
I couldn’t keep in my pocket
Lit the fuse to the rocket
And I’m sinnin’ while I’m winnin’
Now it’s end and a beginning
And we’ll see the rising sun
Because I jumped the gunI jumped the gun (whoa whoa)Boot on the start line
Pistol in the air
‘Quila in the glass, oh here I go again
