[1986]
Lyrics and Music by Robert Lincoln

Anti-handgun song done in a very unusual way. It's a true story – hundreds of times over and over.

Here is another socially conscious/topical song. However, this one is approached in a rather unorthodox way: the incredibly sad narrative is juxtaposed with calm soothing jazzy chords and a happy melody. When I performed this live it would always get a strong reaction. Some people told me it was one of my best-full of irony as well as subdued anger, others said the song made them sick to their stomach and a few found it offensive and/or insensitive and immature. Some truly despise this song. I haven't played it in more than a decade. This is an old recording from 1986.
Saturday morning cartoons, it's super hero time
Two children watch TV – brothers 8 and 9
Things go on as usual..

Daddy's working the weekend shift – Mommy has to make a quick run
Don and Eddie get a little bored – just looking for some fun
Things go on as usual..

Guns don't kill, people do
Would have been the same if he had a knife
Accidents do happen but we -have our rights.

Upstairs to the big bedroom close the door behind
Open up the bureau drawer get daddy's 45
Things go on as usual...

Guns don't kill, people do
Would have been the same if he -had a knife
Accidents do happen,but we -have our rights..

Don points the 45 between his brother's eyes
Pulls the trigger, the bang rings loudly...
Eddie quickly dies
...Things go on as usual..

Guns don't kill, people do
Would have been the same if he -had a knife
Accidents do happen but we -have our rights..

Guns don't kill, people do
Would have been the same if he -had a knife
Accidents do happen but we -have our rights..
