    Lyrics

    We were partners in crime spending our days
    Serving our time in the usual way
    And we went behind the lines to even the score
    I won the battle but you won the war

    I used to be a gun for hire
    Then I was killed by friendly fire
    I used to be a real high flyer
    Then I was killed by friendly fire

    A shot rang out and knocked me flat
    Ain't no coming back from a lick like that
    I never saw it coming, it came out of the blue
    I never did believe my assassin would be you

    I got the message down the wire
    That I was killed by friendly fire
    I used to be a gun for hire
    Then I was killed by friendly fire

    We were partners in crime spending our days
    Serving our time in the usual way
    And we went behind the lines to even the score
    I won the battle but you won the war

    I used to be a gun for hire
    Then I was killed by friendly fire
    I used to be a real high flyer
    Then I was killed by friendly fire

    That shot rang out and knocked me flat
    Ain't no coming back from a lick like that
    I never saw it coming, it came out of the blue
    I never did believe my assassin would be you

    I got the message down the wire
    That I was killed by friendly fire
    I used to be a gun for hire
    Then I was killed by friendly fire
