Stones songs about guns and other lethal stuff

It stuck me "Hand of Fate" lyrics have a sort of familiarity with "I shot the Sheriff" as to counting the shots, just like in a murder case.

Hand of Fate

The wind blew hard, it was stormy night
He shot me once, but I shot him twice


I Shot the Sheriff

I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy


It's all together mean and down to earth... Both songs are about counting the shots, and self-defense... It says a good deal about the poor boy's condition...

Other songs come to mind...

Cops and Robbers


And then he said, "you see this rock I got in my hand?
This is a 38 pistol built on a 45 frame
It shoots tombstone bullets and a ball and chain"

Well you knew with my username I'd contribute to this thread....

If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain?

SFM of course

other leathal stuff: Sister Morphine, Dead Flowers and all those other drug songs

(Sparks will fly: "sharks will cry" surely kills one's lyrical sensibilities)

"... with your 45s..."

It’s actually 44... which I only know because, when I heard this song in my much younger days, I thought they were singing ‘...with your bowling ball...’ When I found out what they were actually singing, I felt like a twit. grinning smiley

I had a dream last night I was piloting a plane
And all the passengers were drunk and insane
I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp
Shot up a horde of zombies but I come out on top

Soul Survivor

When the waters is rough
The sailing is tough
I'll get drowned in your love
You've got a cutthroat crew, yeah
I'm gonna sink under you, oh
I got the bell-bottom blues
It's gonna be the death of me

It, it's the graveyard watch
Running right on the rocks
I've taken all of the knocks
Ain't giving me the quarter
I'd rather drink sea water, whoa
I wish I'd never had brought you
It's gonna be the death of me

one hit to the body...could become lethal if the 'hit' was strong enough
had it with you...maybe enough to kill?
Fight...enough said.
Harlem Shuffle...Hitch, Hitchhike baby (yeah sure, and be picked up by a serial killer maybe!)
winning ugly...again, maybe enough to kill?
Hold Back...'choke on that'!
Dirty Work..."your a user your a user, I hate you" - enough to kill maybe?
sleep tonight...metaphor for death
back to zero...thermonuclear war
Too Rude...girl your bound to fall (minimally a death threat)

I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
And he said one word to me and that was "dead"
I said to him ...
