Raise Hell Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've been down with a broken heart since the day I learned to speak
The devil gave me a crooked start when he gave me crooked feet
But Gabriel done came to me and kissed me in my sleep
And I'll be singnin' like an angel until I'm six feet deep
I found myself an omen and I tattooed on a sign
I set my mind to wanderin' and walk a broken line
You have a mind to keep me quiet and although you can try
Better men have hit there knees and bigger men have died
I'm gonna raise, raise hell
There's a story no one tells
That you gotta raise, Raise hell
Go on now ring that bell
It came upon a lightning strike and eyes of bright clear blue
I took that tie from around my neck and gave my heart to you
I sent my love across the sea and though I didn't cry
That voice will haunt my every dream until the day I die
I'm gonna raise, raise hell
There's a story no one tells
That you gotta raise, Raise hell
Go on now ring that bell
I dug a hole inside my heart to put you in your grave
at this point it was you or me and mama didn't raise no slave
You took my face in both your hands and looked me in the eye
And I went down with such a force that in your grave I lie
I'm gonna raise, raise hell
There's a story no one tells
That you gotta raise, Raise hell
Go on now ring that bell
Go on now ring that bell
Go on now ring that bell
Go on now ring that bell
