  • Now you know
    I'm not a savior
    Let me make it
    Understood
    And the shirt upon
    My back is all i own
    I don't wanna be
    A loner
    So i go against the grain
    And i feel the blood
    Is rushin' through my veins

    I cant fake it
    And i crucify myself
    I have been shot down
    By a stone
    I'm gonna walk
    Across the state line
    Gotta take a
    Higher road

    I'm on the great divide
    I'm sanctified
    Be by your side
    I hope we don't collide
    So let me ride
    The great divide
    Its beautiful

    I don't live in superstition
    Gonna let my freak flag fly
    Gotta black cat moan
    My conscience is
    My guide
    And i use my intuition
    There's a liar and a thief
    And I've been to hell
    Before you were my friend

    I cant fake it
    And i crucify myself
    I have been shot down
    By a stone
    I'm gonna walk
    Across the state line
    Gotta take a
    Higher road

    I'm on the great divide
    I'm sanctified
    Be by your side
    I hope we don't collide
    So let me ride
    The great divide
    Its beautiful

    I cant fake it
    And i crucify myself
    I have been shot down
    By a stone
    I''m gonna walk
    Across the state line
    Gotta take a
    Higher road

    I'm on the great divide
    I'm sanctified
    Be by your side
    I hope we don't collide
    So let me ride
    The great divide
    Its beautiful

    Its beautiful
    Its beautiful
    Its beautiful Writer/s: Glenn William Hughes, Joe Bonamassa

  • Dusty from St. Louis, MoI love all the instruments on this song. My favorites are Glenn Hughes' singing, and Jason Bonhams drumming.
