“JUST SHOOT ME”
WRITTEN BY BARRY CRANNELL & BILL OSOFSKY
PORTLAND, OREGON

Dancin’ like old lovers
But we had barely met
I was a redneck Romeo
She was blue jeans Juliet
She told other cowboys “just move on”
Like I was the only one
I felt myself surrender
And thought “Cupid, have some fun”

Just shoot me
Make your aim straight and true
Cupid, find that lovin’ mark
Like only you can do
I could be in love before last call
It all depends on you
So just shoot me, yeah
Just shoot me

Hair like morning sunshine
A smile that could melt a stone
A kiss that made my knees shake
And she wanted to take me home
I felt like a kid with a school boy crush
Tongue-tied from the start
Nothing to defend me from
The bull’s eye on my heart
I said

Just shoot me
Make your aim straight and true
Cupid, find that lovin’ mark
Like only you can do
I could be in love before last call
It all depends on you
So just shoot me, yeah
Just shoot me

Guess I’m an easy target, more than I woulda thought
I ain’t gonna run away, I’m lovin’ bein’ caught

Just shoot me
Make your aim straight and true
Cupid, find that lovin’ mark
Like only you can do
I could be in love before last call
It all depends on you
So just shoot me, yeah
Just shoot me
