Shotgun Lyrics

Homegrown alligator, see you later
Gotta hit the road, gotta hit the road
The sun it changed in the atmosphere
Architecture unfamiliar
I can get used to this

Time flies by in the yellow and green
Stick around and you'll see what I...

    Shotgun is simply the front passenger seat of the car. Traditionally the seat next to the driver on the stage coach is the one carrying the weapon for defense... In this context George is enjoying a ride looking around and enjoying himself without having to worry about driving...

    Home grown alligator refers to home grown weed

    A lot of people say it's about Australia or South Africa because of the reference south of the equator but the singer said it was about his holiday in Barcelona, sun and palm trees. Personally I heard a friend saying yellow and green are two types of weed so the song might be about getting high and relax but also feel high (riding shotgun) rather than the interpretation of the passenger seat.
    I guess because the song isn't clear but vague then each person interpret it as they see fit.

    I would say this song is about Australia because of the south of equator reference and 'time flies by in the yellow and green' which are the aussie colours. But imma bit confused because 'shotgun' is most certainly NOT an Australian phrase - we don't say that down under. But the guy also says 'architecture unfamiliar' which leads me to think that he is not familiar with his surroundings much like a tourist - so maybe this is some guy from the US holidaying down under.

    It is obviously abot Austrlia. He says south of the equator (which is where australia is located) and he says yellow and green alot (which australia's colours.

    Shotgun means riding in the passenger seat of a car. Not meant to be the gun “shotgun” in the song.

    The way I sing it bullets fly like a jarney just like bullets airplanes fly underneath a hot Sun like Florida or kammer by way of telling a person in code to past a coded message shotgun going on something that flys airplanes fly bullets go in straight lines so do plains underneath a hot Sun side and Kenner are under a hot sun

    Riding on a shotgun ?
    My meaning of a shotgun is a rifle.
    How can you ride on a shotgun?
