Stone Sour - Gimme Shelter Lyrics

Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost your way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

Stone Sour Gimme Shelter Comments
  1. Mathew Shaw

    Love it!

  2. Great Cover

    Génial !! Excellente reprise des Rolling Stones !! Great Cover !! ...In my Compil ' !! :)

  3. Chicken Draws Dogs


  4. you're probably wrong

    Bout as nasty a cover as you're gonna find

  5. Kyle Nobles

    this just aint right without mick on vocals...Lzzy killin it though

  6. Salvatore Perez

    I Love Corey but as an Addict, he doesn't know how to STOP. Some songs should never be touched. He does a Great job but nobody should mess with perfection

  7. Andrew Macleod

    Absolutely epic!! Corey's power wow. And Lzzy just has rock n roll running through her veins and in her soul. They need to do more stuff together. Lzzys voice in the background.. Wow. Perfect choice by stone sour or corey to have her on the track.

  8. rocker4975

    Good cover, but the Rolling Stones with Lisa Fisher is still my no.1

  9. John Sample

    UMG LZZY!!! Perfection

  10. Joe Freiheit

    One of the best covers I’ve heard, Lizzy outstanding as usual!

  11. DETH2 DaGOOG

    Who did this song originally?

    ahmad amirul afandi

    The Rolling Stone

    Aaron Ray

    The Rolling Stones. Puddle of Mudd did it later before Stone Sour.

  12. Dr. Mantis Toboggan, M.D.

    Damn! This is a great cover.

  13. Philip Wurm

    What a Great version of my Fav tune! Almost didn’t listen after hearing a few other attempts....... Great job!!!

  14. Derek El Magnifico

    Burbank child here. You guys killed it. Thank you 🤟🏼

  15. Mark Jackson

    Gives me freakin chills , Boi!

  16. MickO

    Ten seconds in. I like it already!

  17. wyse TV

    I like Corey a lot, I just don't think this style fits him. Lzzy Hale, however, has that god damn soul. That's what this song is meant for. No disrespect to Corey at all though.

  18. Jared Hiller

    Corey Taylor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nobody better!!!!

  19. Midnight Mystery


  20. Avery Jarhman aka Prevent Child Abuse

    I smiled. Thanks!


    Corey Taylor the best

  22. Sarunas Zvirblis

    I dont know when was the last time time when I had so many possitive vibes ! I'm shaking !

  23. Michael Schories

    gute Version, die prägende Hintergrundstimme kommt ans Original leider nicht ran...

  24. brian u

    Kick ass tune,to be monster!

  25. Lindsay O

    Great cover!!

  26. delaware doomoho

    This is a good version. However in my opinion the paul brady and forest rangers cover for SoA is far much better than this and the orignal itself

  27. followerofshrek

    Sounds like the original injected with a shot of pure adrenaline. Pretty good overall, but wtf is this shit @ 1:53 ??

  28. southern hot mess

    I had to listen again and MY GOD... WHAT A HELL OF A GREAT JOB WITH THIS REMAKE LOVE IT !!!!!!!!

  29. southern hot mess

    So damn impressed with this song song right here....they did such a awesome job ...way to go in this one

  30. gcmotorman 63

    I'm a big fan of Corey Taylor but he needs to leave the song alone. Certain bands music should never be covered by others.

  31. Melody Shadows


  32. deadring

    Awesome song.. BUT.. can't beat the original back vocals by Merry Clayton.

  33. Anthony Bailey

    Nice cover

  34. justin C

    Holy fuck

  35. Maureanna Of Moorhead Forest

    On the surface, one would assume this is going to sound "American sho-bizzy" but the performances are rather brilliant. It doesn't sound cheezy whatsoever. Good on ya, Corey (and Lzzy).

  36. Rumble Fish

    burnin like a red coal carpet, mad bull's lost his way...!

  37. Ivory Keez

    Is that Lady Gaga lol

    Anthony Bailey

    Ivory Keez THE STONES lol

  38. Daniel Wood

    Brings Back SOA

  39. FOXBODY 351W

    Some songs are better left to be sung by the creators.

  40. Stephen Reynolds

    Good cover. Stereophonics anyone?

  41. Drake Stanifer

    Thought I was gonna like it way better. Lzzy could have hit the notes from the original. Her vocal range is crazy not sure why she toned it down for this...Corey was good but Mrs. Hyde had more she could have gave to us.

  42. chris martin

    I know how awesome Corey’s singing can be, but everything I’ve heard him sing with Lzzy Hale, he kinda seems to be overshadowed by her IMO

    Alan Heyes

    chris martin She just has a powerful voice. Corey is a more competent and accomplished vocalist.

  43. Shandana Imtiaz

    Can I say it is better then rolling Stones.

  44. J Dude

    Better than the original! Still has vintage sound too! Lizzy makes it!

  45. SweetDaddyGrunge Robert Aaron

    You couldn't have found better vocalists to remake this song, and the musicianship is epic, best cover in a long time

  46. Zac Bestul

    I bet Mick Jagger is impressed. How about Corey and Mick do the song together. 🤘🤘🤘

    Alan Heyes

    Zac Bestul I second this motion.

  47. AuSgAmEr E&P

    fuck Corey can sing anything

  48. BlueOzzyInc

    Wish Litzy Hale would put as much effort in her own songs as she does covers.

  49. Yoshi Heath

    Love this song really good even my brother likes it and he hates this guy

  50. Josh McClellan

    Awesome cover ! I jam this at work !

  51. lorenzo martinez


  52. Robert Conley

    Jagger and Richards would be proud

  53. Jimmy The Clown

    Rock will never die ❤❤

  54. Curtis Pruit

    Ehhh, not bad but not great either.

  55. Ryan A.

    Not as good lol not even close to being as good as the rolling stones cover haha bring back the 60's

  56. Dan Evan Hall

    Amazing cover ... love hearing heavier bands cover the classics. I was inspired to do this one:

  57. bulletsXrevenge08

    I love both Corey and Lzzy, but this isnt that great. forest rangers did a amazing cover.

    I would however love to see them together again, on a track that shows both their skills better!

  58. Michael

    Man....i love this Stones song. AND this version.

  59. booji boy

    Mick and Keef are smiling DAMN this ROCKS

  60. Corey Ratliff

    This is f’n awful.

  61. Ryan Surace

    Fucking amazing!

  62. Kaye Gillanders

    I too thought this would be lame but it's rocking my tits off xx

  63. Cody Hilton

    Damn at it again with the hits guys. Fuckin crushin it.

  64. Little devil

    is it wrong for me to say that i find this better then the original?

  65. Ross Butters

    Thanks Corey know one can match the original but you definitely kicked ass it’s just know one can hold a candle to the original female vocalist
    Cheers Corey you saved my life

  66. Martin Genet

    how did anyone give this a thumbs down?
