A Rolling Stones song sung by various vocalists with with Phil Lesh & Friends, including in November 2013 by Anders Osbrone as part of their (and American Jubilee's) cover of the album "Let It Bleed". Also covered by The Dead in 2009.

Ooh, a storm is threatening 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 streets today
Burns like a red coal carpet, mad bull lost its way
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

Mmm, the flood is threatening, 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 thaught away, it's just a shot away

I said, 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, kiss away, kiss away, yeah
