Janie's Got A Gun Lyrics - Aerosmith
Review The Song (20)
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, it's the sound... Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah.... Janie got a gun Janie got a gun Her whole world's come undone From looking 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 got a gun She ain't never gonna be the same Janie got a gun Janie got a gun Her dog day's just begun Now everybody is on the run Tell her now it's untrue What did her daddy do? He jacked the little bitty baby The man has got to be insane They say the spell that he was under The lightin' and the thunder Knew that someone had to stop the pain Run away, run away from the pain Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, Run away, run away from the pain Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Run away, run away, run, run away Ja

It is to bad that Tyler and his friend did not write this song. He stole it and the song was origanlly called Johnie's got a gun. Not Danny or Janie. You should be ashamed of yourself Steven for taking credit!

@Danielle: the original lyrics/facts | Reviewer: Kitt McKie | 5/15/11
I don't know if you've learned this or not since your comment was posted in 2008, but the song is in fact about incest. The original lyrics to the song went 'he raped the little bitty baby/the man has got to be insane.' However, everyone wanted them to censor it because they thought that it was 'explicit.' They also had to censor 'put a bullet in his brain' for the radio to 'left him in the pouring rain,' however the original line is used in the music video. In addition, the background lyrics for the ending of the song when he's singing 'now everybody is on the run' go like this:
Honey, honey, what's your problem
Tell me it ain't right
Was it daddy's cradle robbing
That made you scream at night?
Steven Tyler often sings the original lyrics with the word 'raped' in them when he performs live.
I hope that this helped answer your question if it wasn't already answered by someone else.
Ronald Regan Assassination | Reviewer: Paul | 12/17/10
This is about a 4 year old wild long hair orphan, named Jamey. I was thrown out of my hotel by Regan adminsitration, where the next day I was suppose to meet with an Arbian oil sheck. The boy knock out a Regan phantom with a stun gun on the back of my neck, using a wrist rocket . I befriended him and bought him a gun and other food and clothing accounts. I showed him a picture of Regan the Reptilian ruler. The next day the whole world came undone. They place a fall guy to cover Jamey. The song is for him in case he cant remember.
damn | Reviewer: lex | 10/4/10
love this as most of aerosmith's songs
the hardest part of this song must be that everybody's on the run, sad but true most victims of abuse end up being abused for a way to long course of their lives like they have some kind of sign on their backs saying it's fine to abuse me, they'll feel the pain in the end,... i hope blessed be the abused, break the chain
Aerosmith Speaking Out | Reviewer: Samantha | 8/23/10
This song means more to me than any other song. This song is helping me through the worst time in my life-having been sexually abused by my father. This song is Aerosmith speaking out about something most people don't have the guts to. I think every incest surviver should hear this song so they know they are not alone. Everyone who thinks this song is bad because of what it's talking about is ignorant because it needs to be talked about, awareness is the best prevention. Every child needs to know that bad people exist so I say, thank you Aerosmith for breaking the silence.
my life | Reviewer: Michelle | 6/20/10
This song meant a lot to me as a teenager, as I was sexually abused by my father and a few of his friends from the age of three to about eleven. It helped me with my anger. Anger is ok, but of course I would not do what Janie did. I forgave so that I didn't have to carry the pain he caused anymore. It's his to carry for the rest of his life. I don't have a relationship with him at all, and very often the pain does come back, but slowly over time, it has become something more that I can help others with by sharing my story. The only thing is you can't run away from the pain, you can try, but you have to face it and fight it.
me | Reviewer: lidia | 11/25/09
oh wow this is not realy good for the kisds that are 18 and down some are this slow that maybe it dosent know wt it means and they will grave one and use it i dont think in a good way bt in a bad one
It's True | Reviewer: AzCullen | 6/18/09
I think this song is absoulutely amazing from the voice of Steven Tyler to the awesome licks of Joe Perry. But most importantly in the song it talks about a subject that not many people talk about that is being sexually abused in this case it's Janie. This song let's us know that our world is not perfect and that there our kids out there who are being sexually abused by there parents even though some of us choose not to beleive it, these kinds of things our happening and i'm glad someone actually chose to step up and say this is what's going on! So thankyou Aerosmith for being true I love you guys!!
BEST SONG EVER!! | Reviewer: Jenny (Not Janie ;) ) | 11/17/08
I am a huge Aerosmith fan. Most of Aerosmith's stuff is about sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, but this song is just way too good. They totally outdid theirselves. It's the last thing you would've expected, and it's just amazing! It shows what can happen when somebody stays silent too long about something like that. It raises awareness about those types of things. And the music video is incrediblly haunting. Like in a good way. Joe Perry says that after that song was released, the band received loads of fanmail thanking them for writing that song because most other bands have never dared to touch that subject. And they did. Kudos to them!
Brilliant Song | Reviewer: Jess | 8/3/08
The song "Janie's got a gun" is amazing, it lets you know how she is feeling and it really has depth within the lyrics, I think it was aerosmiths best song. Well done Aerosmith, through this song, you have become one of my favourite bands! :)
Awesome | Reviewer: Danielle | 7/3/08
