lyrics

I grew up way down in the valley
I grew up without the lord
I woke up one day on the mountain
I woke up out in the storm
My mother, she gave me thunder
My father gave me the rain
The Devil, he gave me lightning
Before Jesus ever had a chance

Leave, leave, leave me with the moonshine
Let me sing, sing, sing long into the night
Light me up or strike me down
Not goin' out lyin' on the ground
Feed, feed, feed me the fire

Nothing I done is worth forgiving
I been bought, and I been sold
I never asked no one to go on living
I never asked no one to save my soul

Leave, leave, leave me with the moonshine
Let me sing, sing, sing long into the night
If you're gonna' strike me dead
Get those embers burning red
Keep on feed, feed, feeding me the fire

The sky's falling, the thunder's pounding'
Oh, I got the fury, I got the flame
I'm goin' back up to the mountain
To light those embers in the rain

Leave, leave, leave me with the moonshine
Let me sing, sing, sing long into the night
Rather hang my head
Than see those embers soakin' wet
Keep on feed, feed, feeding me the fire

Lead, lead, lead me to great heights
Don't make me dream, dream, dream now until I die
I'll never wilt or fade away
You'll have to take me up in flames
Feed, feed, feed me the fire
Keep on feed, feed, feeding me the fire
Oh keep on feed, feed, feeding me the fire

Don't you try to take me down softly
Don't you try to pawn me off on The Lord
Well I'll die in the same place where you bought me
If I'm gon' burn out, well I'll burn out in the storm
