    Lyrics

    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots and we'll take that ride
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots

    Lena gets her son ready for school
    She says now on these streets Charles
    You got to understand the rules
    Promise me if an officer stops you'll allways be polite
    Never ever run away and promise momma you'll keep your hands in sight

    Cause is it a gun?
    Is it a knife?
    Is it a wallet?
    This is your life
    It ain't no secret
    It ain't no secret
    The secret my friend
    You can get killed just for living in your American skin

    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    Across this bloody river to the other side
    41 shots they cut through the night
    You're kneeling over his body in the vestibule
    Praying for his life

    Is it a gun?
    Is it a knife?
    Is it a wallet?
    This is your life
    It ain't no secret
    It ain't no secret
    Ain't no secret my friend
    You can get killed just for living in your American skin

    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots

    Lena gets her son ready for school
    She says now on these streets Charles
    You got to understand the rules
    Promise me if an officer stops you'll always be polite
    Never ever run away and promise momma you'll keep your hands in sight

    Cause is it a gun?
    Is it a knife?
    Is it a wallet?
    This is your life
    It ain't no secretn get killed just for living in your American skin

    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots

    Is it a gun?
    Is it a knife?
    Is it a wallet?
    This is your life
    It ain't no secret
    It ain't no secret
    It ain't no secret

    41 shots and we'll take that ride
    Across this bloody river to the other side
    41 shots my boots caked in mud
    We're baptized in these waters and in each other's blood

    It ain't no secretIs it a knife?
    Is it a wallet?
    This is your life
    It ain't no secret
    It ain't no secret
    The secret my friend
    You can get killed just for living in
    You can get killed just for living in
    You can get killed just for living in your American skin

    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
    41 shots
