Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real Lyrics


"Civilized Hell"

Well she’s been runnin’ for a mighty long time
Cuttin’ fences and snappin’ lines
She’s growin’ on me
I hope that she she don’t go
Wind’s blowin’ on me
I feel the fire grow

She’s a rebel and I like it
It don’t take much to make her yell
And I draw cold water from a wishing well
Hopin’ she don’t die in a civilized hell

I had a good friend tell me not long ago
Said change is rainin’ and I’m ready to roll
So I led her down
Through the canyon walls
I told her here we row
When the river calls

She’s a rebel and I like it
It don’t take much to make her yell
And I draw cold water from a wishing well
Hopin’ she don’t die in a civilized hell
In a civilized hell

I saw an old woman with a twinkle-eyed grin
Settin’ fire to a billboard with a song in her head
I heard her cry out loud
Happy she’s alive
And the stars will shine
As the fire dies

She’s a rebel and I like it
It don’t take much to make her yell
And I draw cold water from a wishing well
Hopin’ she don’t die in a civilized hell
In a civilized hell

I ain’t leavin’ this road I know
I ain’t done fightin’ for the freedom I chose
Can’t put a rope on me
You can’t shoot me down
I listen to my heart
I hear the river sound

I’m a rebel and I like it
It don’t take much to make me yell
And I draw cold water from a wishing well
Hopin’ I don’t die in a civilized hell
I hope that I don’t die in a civilized hell
In a civilized hell
