Top 10 Miranda Lambert Songs about Brutal, Brutal Revenge
Ma'am, please step away from the acoustic guitar.
I don't come by country music fandom naturally; people who do tell me that there are many reasons to enjoy the music of Miranda Lambert. But the most accessible route to Miranda Lambert appreciation ahead of Thursday's concert at Desert Sky Pavilion, so far as I can tell, is through her songs about taking a vicious and final revenge on men who have done her or someone else wrong.
Here, then, are 10 of those songs. Please be careful around her.
10. Time to Get a Gun
Time to get a gun That's what I've been thinking I could afford one If I did just a little less drinking Time to put something Between me and the sun When the talking is over It's time to get a gun
When the party is over It's time to get a gun
This is more a prequel to revenge than actual revenge, but once she gets the gun she puts it to good use. Note to self: Do not let the party be over.
9. Sin for a Sin
By the don't-show-Jaws-right-away principle, it is even more unnerving when Miranda Lambert does not immediately explain what her revenge is.
I remember vividly what that vision did to me You laying with her in our bed Love can be a tradgedy When you do what you did to me All I'm seeing now is red
I need to repent A sin for a sin
