Janie's Got A Gun Lyrics

Dum, dum, dum, honey what have you done?
Dum, dum, dum it's the sound of my gun.
Dum, dum, dum, honey what have you done?
Dum, dum, dum it's the sound

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her whole world's come undone
From lookin' straight at the sun
What did her daddy do?
What did he put you through?
They said when Janie was arrested
they found him underneath a train
But man, he had it comin' Now that Janie's got a gun
she ain't never gonna be the same.

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Tell me now it's untrue.
What did her daddy do?
He jacked a little bitty baby
The man has got to be insane
They say the spell that he was under the lightning and
the
thunder knew that someone had to stop the rain

Run away, run away from the pain yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Run away run away from the pain yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away, run away, run, run away yeah

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
What did her daddy do?
It's Janie's last I.O.U.
She had to take him down easy and put a bullet in his
brain
She said 'cause nobody believes me. The man was such a
sleeze.
He ain't never gonna be the same.

Run away, run away from the pain yeah, yeah
yeah yeah yeah
Run away run away from the pain yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away, run away, run, run away yeah

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Everybody is on the run

Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Because Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Janie's got a gun

It is very sweet of Aerosmith to make this song about sexual abuse, and how morbid it really is. But we all know that Aerosmith actually cares about others and not just themselves. Steven Tyler is HOT

Anybody who can sexually abuse a child deserves a bullet in the brain. Bring in the death penalty for f*ckers of this kind all over this world. Aerosmith and other bands conveying messages like this need our support and get rid our society from these weak pathetic little monsters.

It's also about giving awareness of woman's killings as well. It isn't just a man's thing, and sometimes woman's killings are more brutal. It's in them.Could be of the suppression they had for decades

I love this song. I think it is one of Aerosmith's best songs ever written. I love the message behind the song as well. They wrote the song to bring up sexual abuse awareness. That's a wonderful thing
