Guns 'n Missiles - Sweet Cobra Mine

Post by SteveKing »

Hi all, I hope this one strikes a chord :lol:

I'm the Milky Way Kid, and your tuned into Layve's favourite sub-aether comms station "Jameson2084.004"

Ok all you mOovers and haulers, here's another rock classic from the vault.

But first a word from one of our sponsors: Remember,
If you’re looking for a reliable electro-mechanic for that essential scanner repair or shield overhaul, why not give Mac’s Autos a call. EM licence 22518
Workshops can be found in most systems TL9 or better.
Mac’s Autos, open 10 hours a galactic day… and 10 hours a galactic night; just ask for Mac

So here it is, one of my all time favourites, re-mastered by the rock legends themselves:

Guns ‘n Missiles’ Ooniversal hit – Sweet Cobra Mine

She's got some shields that it seems to me
Reminds me of iron-hide memory
When everything
Was as bright as the starlit sky
Then I knew when I saw her first
And she took me away to the Ooniverse
If I stayed too long
I'd want to break down and cry

Oh… oh tweaked shields o' mine
Oh… oh, oh Sweet Cobra mine

She's got sensors with a boosted range
to see all the pirates and the Thargoids strange
I’d hate to miss… another chance
To cause them no end of pain
Her hold reminds me
of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd wait
And pray for the day
When I’d fly away
To make my fortune in trade

Oh… oh hot guns o' mine
Oh… oh, oh Sweet Cobra mine

edit: [Slash's blade sharp killer Les Paul screaming guitar solo]

Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go

Sweet Cobra mine

I humbly submit to the Gunners fan. Dutifully corrected :)

Played bass for the song in a band many years ago, always a crowd favourite! Our lead guitarist did a reasonable job with the solo, but nothing compares to the orig :)

Kudos! Excellent re-working of the lyrics.. 8)
