Nashville Music: Gunnar Sings “Gun For a Mouth” in Episode 18
We have a lot to thank Nashville for, with the hottest reason being Gunnar Scott’s (Sam Palladio) appearance in our lives. And while he hasn’t exactly been a shining beacon of awesomeness in the past few episodes, the little taste we got in Season 1, Episode 18 “Take These Chains From My Heart” was a good one. So, while we wait for him to stop hurting Scarlett (Clare Bowen), to treat Will (Chris Carmack) as a real friend, and to get his life together, at least we have this song.
In Episode 18, Gunnar and Will performed at open mic at Tootsie’s, singing “Gun For a Mouth,” which will appear on the Music of Nashville: Season 1, Volume 2 album, which drops May 7. Although we only got to see a snippet of the song, its a great direction for Gunnar’s sound as he figures out who he is as an artist. Here are the lyrics we could discern from his performance:
Found a girl and I gave her a ring She was everything I’m looking for It’s over now and this is how I lost the war
Well my head got heavy as a Christmas cake And I made a break for the door It sucks so young (?) You shot your tongue I lost the war
But you’re not the only one with a gun for a mouth No you’re not the only one With a gun
And the red headed angel in the wings Singing lay down your sword It’s over now And this is how I lost the war
But you’re not the only one with a gun for a mouth Yeah x 7
