Lyrics

well, i don’t know what i found
but there’s no hope in this here town
well i don’t know what i saw
its all the same when there’s no god

there’s somethin’ wrong in the city tonight
them good ol’ boys are out lookin’ to fight
there’s a folk singer sprawled on the floor
and there’s blood on the ground
there’s somethin’ wrong with the city tonight
everybody got their guns
aint a cop in sight
they got the building surrounded
lord, why’d i ever come to this town

and i’ll go, go, go
like a bullet down the highway
as fast as these wheels can take me from this road
and the mountain tops will glow
blood red with the fire from the city below
i’m never goin’ back
i’m goin’ home

and i know…

well, i don’t know what i found
but there’s no hope in this here town
well i don’t know what i saw
its all the same when there’s no god

there’s a cemetery up on the hill
with some fresh dug graves
that they’re lookin’ to fill
and all the town people know
once you’re in, you never come out
now there’s bodies droppin’ round me like flies
swingin’ fists, broken bottles
on a cool mountain night
ain’t but one road out of this mess
for six lonely miles

and i’ll go, go, go
like a bullet down the highway
as fast as these wheels will take me from this road
and the mountain tops will glow
blood red with the fire from the city below
i’m never goin’ back
i’m goin’ home

and the sweet mother virgin watches over her flock
but the water’s all polluted and brown
the streets are all packed with the living dead
but no one dares make a sound
you can pray all you want to the father above
you can bury your head in the ground
aint no mistakin’
aint use complainin’
nothin’s gonna save
nothin’s gonna save your town

and i’ll go, go, go
like a bullet down the highway
as fast as these wheels will take me from this road
and the mountain tops will glow
blood red with the fire from the city below
i’m never goin’ back
i’m goin’ home

and i know…
