Song lyrics
Dum dum dum, honey what have you done?
Dum dum dum, it's the sound of my gun
Dum dum dum, honey what have you done?
Dum dum dum, it's the sound

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her whole world's come undone
From lookin' straight at the sun
What did her daddy do?
What did he put you through?
They say when Janie was arrested
They found him underneath a train
But man, he had it comin'
Now that Janie's got a gun
She ain't never gonna be the same

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run

Tell me now it's untrue
What did her daddy do?
He jacked a little bitty baby
The man has got to be insane
They say the spell that he was under
The lightning and the thunder
Knew that someone had to stop the rain

Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah
Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah,yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away, run away,run,run away

(instrumental)

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
What did her daddy do?
It was Janie's last I.O.U
She had to take him down easy
And put a bullet in his brain
She said 'cause nobody believes me
The man was such a sleaze, he ain't
Never gonna be the same

Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away, run away, run, run away...........

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Everybody is on the run
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Because Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun.....

(Steven Tyler in the Background while chorus out)
Honey, honey what's the problem?
Tell me it ain't right
Was it Daddy's cradle robbin' that
Made you scream at night

Honestly, I typically can't stand Aerosmith, but I have to give credit where credit is due, and this song deserves A LOT of credit. It's an absolutely fantastic song. I wish they would do more music like this.

This is song is fucking great. It takes a lot of guts to write a song like this. It's a scary topic, but it's sung in a great way, not at all depressing. It really is amazing.
