about

I have a country vein running through me and it explodes in this song. This is pure fantasy about my wife. It is NOT real. My wife wants me to make that VERY clear. Fun song to perform live.

lyrics

She’s loaded - fully automatic
A 10-gallon walk with a pistol smile she’s a shotgun ready to blow

Trigger happy, a smoking gun
She’s got ammo to spare so you best beware she takes no prisoners

Well I got lost in her sights and I was dead to rights
She eased on the trigger and the blast came strong

But her first shot missed but her love hit like ricochet
I tired to resist but her love hit like a ricochet

Reloaded, the chambers full
She’s smooth in the hand with an easy grip, like Colt 44

Target practice, straight for the heart
She shoots from the hip better give no lip she’s got you covered

Well I could not escape it was way to late
I ran for cover but I discovered

That her first shot missed but her love hit like a ricochet
I tried to resist but her love hit like a ricochet

It ain’t no use I got no excuse
I’m staggered by her love and whoa what a love…..

She’s loaded - fully automatic
A 10 gallon walk with a pistol smile she’s a shot gun ready to blow

Trigger happy, a smoking gun
She’s got ammo to spare so you best beware she takes no prisoners

Well I got lost in her sights and I was dead to rights
She eased on the trigger and the blast came strong

But her first shot missed but her love hit like ricochet
I tired to resist but her love hit like a ricochet
