Well I'm a white boy In a black uniform And I'm a blues song From a time long gone And life is short But I'm not sure If the devil will be waiting At the end of the song
So get ready my rebels For bad cops and white devils Bury your god We're going to burn that flag Everybody, rise up rebels On we ride
And it's been a long, long day And I got a lot of regrets And my god Have you forgotten about your subjects?
And it's been a rough week Man I've had a tough year I'm so tired Of trying to pretend I belong here
And I could tell you stories Brother, that you wouldn't believe Man, I've known amazing people I've done crazy things And I'm going to tell my tale now Man, I might not have long Because the devil could be waiting at the end of the song
So we blaze on Riding through the streets tonight And we watch the city Burn by the starlight And we dance with the devil By the pale moonlight And we ride on And we ride high
So get ready my rebels For black ops and white devils Bury your god Were going to burn that flag Everybody rise up Rebels, on we ride
Well this life Has been one crazy messed up ride Wherever I go in this world Its been do or die Whatever I want Nothing ever comes without a fight And so we ride on And we ride high
I swindled millions But I got away with every dime I've been a villain But believe me Brother I have done my time I've been a player All the world's a stage From vaudeville to Broadway
And I've been a dealer In my younger days Selling beats and rhymes Lullabyes and cocaine Yeah, I've been broke And I've seen hard times But a beggar He don't pay for peace of mind
And I've seen peace And I've seen war I've seen that angel When she washed up upon the shore Yes, I've known amazing people I've done crazy things, baby I've known love And the pain it brings
And I swayed at the end of the hangman's rope Yes I've been a heartbreaker and I..
