    Lynyrd Skynyrd - It's a Killer

    There's a rumour goin' 'round on the backside of town
    Jake is out to get some revenge
    Has fire in his eyes since his brother died
    Shot down by a so-called friend

    For a fifty dollar gram is what the neighbors say
    Drugs had control of his life
    Caught up on crack you're tryin' to think back
    The devil had him hooked you could see it in his eyes
    It's a killer

    There's a cold house at the corner of the street
    The kids come and go there at night
    Jerry drove up in front of the house
    Somebody pulled out a knife
    Jerry freaked out and went for his gun
    Shot him right between the eyes
    All he ever wanted was a twenty dollar high
    But now he's locked up for the rest of his life

    It's a killer there's no way out baby once your in
    It's a killer steal from your family
    Then you'll turn on your friends
    It's a killer It can happen to you

    So don't you never, never give in
    It's a killer

    The neighborhood I used to call home
    These days it's lookin' like a war zone
    Unemployment on the rise but the black market thrives
    Money just keeps changin' hands
    The laws are gettin' tough sometimes it's not enough
    To satisfy supply and demand

    Trouble breaks out there's fightin' in the streets
    Bullets flyin' all around
    An innocent child caught in the line of fire
    All because there weren't enough drugs to go around

    (repeat chorus)
