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 singing 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 wandering and I walk a broken line.
You have a mind to keep me quiet and although you can try,
Better men have hit their knees and bigger men have died.

I'm gonna raise, raise hell
There's a story no one tells
You gotta raise, raise hell
Go on now ring that bell

You came upon a lightning strike and eyes of bright clear blue
I took a 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
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 and 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's telling
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
