Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
Shotgun Willie's got all his family there

Well you can't make a record if you ain't got nothing to say
You can't make a record if you ain't got nothing to say
You can't play music if you don't know nothing to play
Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
Shotgun Willie's got all his family there

Now John T. Floores was working for the Ku Klux Klan
The six foot five John T. was a hell of a man
Made a lotta money selling sheets on the family plan
Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
