Gimme Shelter Lyrics

Found On:

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Gimme Shelter" (live from The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame)

Yeah, the storm is threatening
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Lord, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweeping
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape and murder
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape and murder
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape baby baby baby and murder
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape baby baby baby band murder
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Yeah, c’mon

Yeah, yeah so the storm is threatening
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Lord, I'm gonna fade away

War and children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War and children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

It's just a shot away
War, children
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Shot away, shot away

It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
Shot away, shot away

It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
Shot away, shot away

It’s just a shot away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Hey, c’mon
Oh yeah
Kiss away, kiss away
Yeah
Kiss away, yeah
It’s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
C’mon
It’s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
Oh yeah, baby baby

It’s just a kiss away

(This song, written by the Rolling Stones, was performed by U2, Mick Jagger, Fergie, and Will.I.Am live and can be found on the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert album)
