Son of a Gun

from Mighty EP by Lord Huron

lyrics

Oh there was a time when she'd lie in the grass
and imagine the places she'd never go.
And there all alone she would pleasure herself
with thoughts of a man she would never know.
Lying there, she made a promise that one day she'd run
and she'd find just the man she was looking for.
Well, she fell in love with that son of a gun,
but he was not the man that she took him for.
When he came to town he came rambling in
on a great cloud of dust carried by the wind.
Oh, it wasn't long before he pulled her in
and he asked her to come run away with him.
He saw a pretty young girl who was ready to run
and she saw just the chance she'd been looking for.
Well, she fell in love with that son of gun,
but he was not the man that she took him for.
They headed out west driving into the sun
and he promised her she was the only one.
Well, he was a thief and he'd steal just for fun.
He'd go cruising around with his little gun.
He ran afoul of the law and decided to run
and he left her alone with their little one.
Well, she was in love with that son of a gun
and the story between them wasn't done.

When she finds him she will make him regret he was ever born.
