And from a tiny river town you came
With Mamma's rock star dreams in tow and Daddy's brains
But the rats they fought you oh yeah tooth and nail
With the way they rigged this game you had to fail
But that's all behind you now, boy

And from a tiny river town you came
With nothing up your sleeve but a dirty forearm and an ace
They drug you through that slaughterhouse at will
You were the soldier without a kill
You were the soldier without a kill

Oh, who's gonna save your soul?
Who's gonna make your heart beat again?

And from a tiny river town you came
Across the Rocky Mountains all in search of better days
But paradise took you out and left the bill
You were the healer without the thrill
You were the ecstasy without the pill

Woh, who's gonna save your soul?
Who's gonna make your heart beat again?

Who's gonna light up your dark?
Who's gonna save your soul?
Who's gonna be there?
Who's gonna light up your dark?

And from a tiny river town you came
With Mamma's rock star dreams in tow and Daddy's brains
You'd better turn back before the frost sets in
These desert nights are for weathered men
The ones who've already given in

Woh, who's gonna save your soul?
Who's gonna make your heart beat again?
Who's gonna save your soul?

Now that you've given in
Now that you've given in
Now that you've given in
