We Both Reached for the Gun - Jerry Orbach/Gwen Verdon/M. O'Haughey/Chicago Ensemble

Written by:John Kander/Fred Ebb/Peter Howard

 

Where'd you come from

 

Mississippi

 

And your parents

 

Very wealthy

 

Where are they now

 

Six feet under

But she was granted one more start

The convent of the sacred heart

When'd you get here

 

Nineteen twenty

 

How old were you

 

Don't remember

 

Then what happened

 

I met Amos and he stole my heart away

Convinced me to elope one day

 

A convent girl a run away marriage

 

Oh it's too terrible you poor poor dear

 

Who's Fred Casely

My ex boyfriend

 

Why'd you shoot him

I was leaving

 

Was he angry

 

Like a madman

Still I said Fred move along

She knew that she was doing wrong

 

Then describe it

 

He came toward me

With a pistol

 

From my bureau

 

Did you fight him

 

Like a tiger

 

He had strength and she had none

And yet we both reached for the gun

 

Oh yes oh yes oh yes we both oh yes we both

Oh yes we both reached for the gun

The gun the gun the gun

Oh yes we both reached for the gun for the gun

 

Oh yes oh yes oh yes they both oh yes they both

Oh yes they both reached for the gun

The gun the gun the gun

Oh yes they both reached for the gun for the gun

 

Understandable understandable

Yes it's perfectly understandable

 

Comprehensible comprehensible

 

Not a bit reprehensible it's so defensible

 

How're you feeling

 

Very frightened

Are you sorry

 

Are you kidding

 

What's you're statement

 

All I'd say is though my choo choo jumped the track

I'd give my life to bring him back

And

Stay away from

What

Jazz and liquor

And

And the men who

What

Play for fun

And what

That's the thought that

Yeah

Came upon me

 

When

When we both reached for the gun

 

Understandable understandable

Yes it's perfectly understandable

Comprehensible comprehensible

 

Not a bit reprehensible it's so defensible

 

Oh yes oh yes oh yes they both oh yes they both

Let me hear it

Oh yes they both reached for the gun

The gun the gun the gun

Oh yes they both reached for the gun for the gun

Little louder

Oh yes oh yes oh yes they both oh yes they both

Oh yes they both reached for the gun

The gun the gun the gun

Oh yes they both reached for the gun for the gun

 

Oh yes oh yes oh yes they both oh yes they both

Oh yes they both reached for the gun

The gun the gun the gun

Oh yes they both reached for the gun for the gun

Oh yes oh yes oh yes they both

Oh yes they both oh yes they both reached for the gun

The gun the gun the gun

The gun the gun the gun the gun

The gun the gun the gun the gun

The gun the gun the gun the gun

 

Both reached for the gun

The gun the gun the gun the gun

The gun the gun the gun the gun

The gun the gun the gun the gun

The gun the gun the gun the gun

Both reached for the gun
