Gave It a Name


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

In the fields of the lord Stood Abel and Cain Cain slew Abel 'neath the black rain At night he couldn't stand the guilt or the blame So he gave it a name So he gave it a name So he gave it a name Billy got drunk, angry at his wife He hit her once, he hit her twice At night he'd lie in bed, he couldn't stand the shame So he gave it a name So he gave it a name So he gave it a name Pa told me Son, one thing I know is true Poison snakes bites you, you're poison too At night I can feel that poison runnin' 'round my veins
