Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn “Shotgun Blues” Lyrics:

If I had a shotgun
If you were in the woods
I’d hunt you down
And tell you you’re no good

If I had a shotgun
You’d fall down on your knees
I’d get you talking
And you’d start begging please

So give me a shotgun
And don’t you run now
Cause if you run now
You know what I’d have to do

If I thought you felt bad
About what you’d done to me
I’d let you go
But boy you’re just too mean

Wish I was a big girl
Could let my heart be free
But if I was a big girl
I’d have you hung in a tree

So give me a shotgun
And don’t you run now
Cause if you run now
You know what I’d have to do

So give me a shotgun
And don’t you run now
Cause if you run now
You know what I’d have to do

Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn are two of Americana music’s most skillful musicians. The duo recently released an album together, and above, you can watch them play “Shotgun Blues,” a track from their 2014 collaborative album.

Recorded in a beautiful outdoor setting, the two come together to perform this banjo driven tune. Béla Fleck’s picking skills are in full display here, and Abigail’s heartbreaking lyrics compliment her rhythmic playing.

Pick up Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn on Amazon (CD, MP3).
