I wake up in the morning And I raise my weary head
I've got an old coat for a pillow And the earth was last night's bed
I don't know where I'm going Only God knows where I've been
I'm a devil on the run
A six gun lover A candle in the wind

When you're brought into this world They say you're born in sin
Well at least they gave me something I didn't have to steal or have to win
Well they tell me that I'm wanted Yeah, I'm a wanted man
I'm a colt in your stable I'm what Cain was to Abel Mister catch me if you can

I'm going out in a blaze of glory Take me now but know the truth I'm going out in a blaze of glory Lord I never drew first But I drew first blood
I'm no one's son
Call me young gun

You ask about my conscience And I offer you my soul
You ask if I'll grow to be a wise man
Well I ask if I'll grow old
You ask me if I've known love
And what it's like to sing songs in the rain
Well, I've seen love come
And I've seen it shot down
I've seen it die in vain

Shot down in a blaze of glory Take me now but know the truth 'Cause I'm going down in a blaze of glory Lord I never drew first But I drew first blood
I'm the devil's son
Call me young gun

Each night I go to bed
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
No I ain't looking for forgiveness But before I'm six foot deep
Lord, I got to ask a favor And hope you'll understand 'Cause I've lived life to the fullest Let this boy die like a man Staring down a bullet Let me make my final stand

Shot down in a blaze of glory Take me now but know the truth I'm going out in a blaze of glory Lord I never drew first But I drew first blood
And I'm no one's son
Call me young gun
I'm a young gun Young gun, yeah yeah yeah Young gun
