You, you, mr. Gunman
You, you, mr. Badman

If you see me walking down the street
Late at night don't shoot me down
No no, no, mr. Gunman

I don't want you to take me for a target
Can't you see, I really don't have it
I've got my wife and my kids at home
And they are all looking
To see me come home, oh yes

So if you see me walking down the street
Late at night don't shoot me down
No no, no, mr. Gunman

It's time that we should re-arrange your mind
You can't keep on going like this all the time, no no
Going around and shootin' up the place, so I say
All I see is just the disgrace, so I say

If you see me walking down the street
Late at night don't shoot me down
No no, no, mr. Gunman

You, you, mr. Gunman

Each and everyone in their community
So they say, they are all afraid of you, mr. Man
If they want to go here, if they want to go there, so they say
All they've got in their minds is pure fear

So if you see me walking down the street
Late at night don't shoot me down
No no, no, mr. Gunman

I don't want you to take me for a target
Can't you see, I really don't have it
I've got my wife and my kids at home
And they are all looking
To see me come home, so I say

If you see me walking down the street
Late at night don't shoot me down
No no, no, mr. Gunman
