Catcher in the Rye
by Guns N' Roses



When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the old folks say
But every time I'd see them
Makes me wish I had a gun

If I thought that I was crazy
Well I guess I'd have more fun
Guess I'd have more fun

Oh No, No, No, No, No

Ooh the Catcher in the Rye again
Ooh won't let ya get away from his gun
It's just another day like today

You decide
If I don't have to
Then they'll find
And I won't ask you
At anytime
Or long thereafter
If it's cold outside
I'll be wrapped up in
Into me
Oh no....

(Solo)

Ooh the Catcher in the Rye again
Ooh won't let ya get away from his gun
It's just another day like today


When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the young folks say
As if they'd ever change
That's not whom I to say
But every time I'd see them
Makes me wish I had a gun
If I thought that I was crazy
Well I guess I'd have more fun
It's what used to be's not there for me
And ought to find someone that belonged insane like I do


Oh no
Not at all (repeat)

On an ordinary day
Not in an ordinary way
All at once this song I heard
No longer would it play for anybody
Or anyone
That needed comfort from somebody
Needed comfort from someone who cared
To be
Not like you
And unlike me
And then the boy took that way
From me
So that he set the wheels in motion
It haunts our memories
You were the instrument
You were the one
How a body tipped a bottle
And gave that boy a gun
You took our innocence
Beyond our scabs
Some type of omen
There we got it
All alone with her to tell
