Lyrics

nothing says christmas like holding a gun

Written By: stewart mcgillivray

NOTHING SAYS CHRISTMAS LIKE HOLDING A GUN
BY
MIKE MCGILLIVRAY AND STEWART MCGILLIVRAY

VERSE 1

IT STARTED WITH THE MINUTEMEN ON A COLD WINTERS NIGHT
THEY COULD HAVE BEEN HOME FOR CHRISTMAS BUT THEY HAD TO STAY AND FIGHT
A NATION WAS BORN BECAUSE THEY WERE SO VERY BRAVE
JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER TROOPS WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR FREEDOM TO THIS DAY.

CHORUS

NOTHING SAYS CHRISTMAS LIKE HOLDING A GUN
I WOULD RATHER BE HOME WITH MY FAMILY HAVING LOTS OF FUN
BUT I WILL STAND GUARD HERE ON THIS CHRISTMAS EVE
AND I WILL BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS
SO THAT YOU ALL CAN BE FREE.

VERSE 2
WE CRAWLED OUT OF OUR TENTS ON THIS CHRISTMAS MORN
THE GROUND WAS HARD ,COLD, AND WET
AND WE STRUGGLED TO STAY WARM
YOU DON’T TAKE OFF FOR HOLIDAYS IN THE MIDDLE OF A WAR
WE HAVE TO KEEP OUR FOCUS AND REMEMBER WHAT WERE FIGHTING FOR

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 3
THE CHRISTMAS BATTLE RAGED ON AND ON I THOUGHT IT WOULD NEVER END
WE LOST A LOT OF TROOPS TODAY INCLUDING MY BEST FRIEND
THERE ARE NO BLINKING LIGHTS AND CHRISTMAS TREES OUT HERE
ALL WE HAVE IS OUR MEMORIES OF CHRISTMAS PAST AS WE FIGHT BACK ALL THE TEARS

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 4

WE GOT BACK TO OUR CAMP AS THE DAY TURNED TO NIGHT
WE SAT AND SANG CHRISTMAS CAROLS IT WAS QUITE A SIGHT
WAR IS NOT WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT WE KNOW THIS IS TRUE
BUT FREEDOM IS THE GREATEST CHRISTMAS GIFT THAT WE CAN GIVE TO YOU
