Lyrics

Bullet .vs Banjo
by Gerry Hazel

Can you stop a bullet with a banjo?
It’s a dangerous thing to try
Doesn’t offer much protection when bullets start to fly
When they’re all lined up against you and you think it’s time to go
Can you stop a bullet with a banjo?
I must say that I don’t know

Can you stop a bullet with a banjo?
Police in riot gear
Would you stand up and start singing
so everyone could hear?
There was a man there standing
when others hit the floor
Can you stop a bullet with a banjo?
I must say that I’m not sure

When he saw injustice
one man’s voice would ring
Another voice would join him
Soon millions more would sing
Can you stop a bullet with a banjo?
Can you stop a war with a song?
If before the shooting starts
you can point out what is wrong?





Farm workers in California miners in Tennessee
Marchers in Alabama
Stuck in the big muddy
Sailing up and down the Hudson
Clean for you and me
He sang for freedom
He sang for dignity

Can you stop a bullet with a banjo?
The question still remains
Can you change the course of history with a few simple refrains?
With words carefully chosen that all can understand
Can you stop a bullet with a banjo played by an honest man?

When he saw injustice one man’s voice would ring
Another voice would join him
Soon millions more would sing
Can you stop a bullet with a banjo?
Can you stop a war with a song?
If before the shooting starts
you can point out what is wrong?

If before the shooting starts
you can point out what is wrong?
