Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My mama warned me about boys like you
It's the reason I wear these high heeled boots
And let me give you
A little piece of advice
My papa packs heat
And he won't think twice

Well, why do you think
They call me Jessie James?
Too much trouble
Better stay away

Grab your hat
Better get gone
But if you stay
You've been warned

[Chorus]
I'm a bullet and I'm headed
Straight for your heart (yeah)
Be careful what you start
I'm a bullet and I'm headed

Straight for your heart (yeah)
It's gonna leave a mark
Be careful what you wish for

You get what you see
Is that a gun in your pocket
Or are you just happy to see me?

I'm a bullet and I'm headed
Straight for your heart (yeah)
Be careful what you start

[Verse 2]
Well, every now and then
I make a man break a sweat
Watch him work overtime
On my wristbands (yeah)

'Cause I'm the kinda girl
That you wanna show off
I'll tell 'em
All your friends with a southern drawl (yeah)

Well, why do you think
They call me Jessie James?
Sweet as a peach
Impossible to tame

Fingers on the trigger
And you'll be to blame
'Cause if you stay

[Chorus]
I'm a bullet and I'm headed
Straight for your heart (yeah)
Be careful what you start
I'm a bullet and I'm headed

Straight for your heart (yeah)
It's gonna leave a mark
Be careful what you wish for

You get what you see
Is that a gun in your pocket
Or are you just happy to see me?

I'm a bullet and I'm headed
Straight for your heart (yeah)
Be careful what you start

[Bridge]
Yeah, I'll ride where the wind
Wants to take me
Leaving lovers in the dust
Every city

'Cause my heart was
Like a ghost town, baby
And now I met a man that brings me

My mama warned me
About boys like you
It's the reason I wear
These high heeled boots

[Chorus]
I'm a bullet
And I'm headed
Straight for your heart (yeah)
Be careful what you start

I'm a bullet
And I'm headed
Straight for your heart (yeah)
It's gonna leave a mark

I'm a bullet baby
A bullet baby
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm a bullet baby
A bullet baby

Is that a gun in your pocket
Or are you just happy
To see me?

I'm a bullet
And I'm headed
Straight for your heart (yeah)
Be careful what you start
