“Shotgun”

is a 1965 single by

Junior Walker & the All Stars,

which was written and composed by Walker and produced by Berry Gordy Jr. and Lawrence Horn.[1] It reached number one on the U.S. R&B Singles chart for four non-consecutive weeks and peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100.[2] Guitarist Jimi Hendrix performed the song live with the All Stars.

Shotgun uses only one chord throughout the entire song — A-flat seventh. Other songs featuring this same structure (or non-structure) are Chain of Fools and Land of 1000 Dances.[3]
