Gimme Shelter Song Lyrics


Oh, a storm is threatning
My very life today
If I don't get me shelter
I think I'm gonna fade away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
See the fire sweepin'
My very street today
Somebody ought to get me some shelter
I think I'm gonna fade away
War, children, its just a shot away
Just one shot away
War, children, its just a shot away
Its just a shot away
Rape, murder!
Its just a shot away
Just one a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Give me, gimme shelter
Ooh, the floods is threatning
My very life today
Gimme, why don't you some shelter
Or I think I'm gonna fade away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Shot away, shot away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
Kiss, kiss away...
