Elton John - "I Feel Like A Bullet" lyrics

I Feel Like a Bullet (In the Gun of Robert Ford)
Elton John
(Ann Orson/Carte Blanche)
-The B-side of "Grow Some Funk of Your Own". Both songs received airplay and

shared the peak position of #14 on the Billboard chart.
F.Y.I.: Robert Ford was the man who shot outlaw, Jesse James
Like a corn in a field I cut you down

I threw the last punch too hard
To throw in my hand for a new set of cards
After years of goin' steady, well I thought that it was time

And I can't take you dancin' out on the weekend
I figured we'd painted too much of this town
And I tried not to look as I walked to my wagon

And I knew then I had lost what should have been fou-nd
I knew then I had lost what should have been found

Chorus:
And I feel like a bullet in the gun of Robert Ford
You know I'm cold as a hired sword
I'm low as a paid assassin is
I'm so ashamed, can't we patch it up
You know I can't think straight no more
You make me feel like a bullet, honey, in the gun

In the gun of Robert Ford
Like a child when his toys have been stepped on
I burst the bubble that both of us lived in
That's how it all seemed to me

And I'm damned if I'll ever get rid of this guilt that I feel
And if looks could kill then I'd be a dead man
Your friends and mine don't call no more
Breaking up is sometimes like breakin' the law
Hell, I thought it was best but now I feel branded

Breaking up is sometimes like breakin' the law
(Chorus)
(Long instrumental break)

(Chorus
