Give Heaven Some Hell

  • Can't believe that you got me in a suit and tie
    I had to take a pull so I wouldn't cry
    You got a line out the church door sayin' goodbye
    Yeah, I believe 'em when they say you're in a better place
    You had a wild side but you had amazing grace
    I know you're way off up in them clouds
    But if you can still hear me right now

    I hope you hit those gold streets on two wheels
    I hope your mansion in the sky's got a ten-acre field
    With some mud and some hubs you can lock in
    Make some thunder, make 'em wonder how you got in
    Hide your beer, hide your clear from the man upstairs
    Crank it loud, hold it down 'til I get there
    And when I do I hope you got some new stories to tell
    'Til then, give heaven some hell

    I bet you're lookin' for a crew like we had
    Bunch of noise-makin' boys that like to live fast
    Burnin' rubber in a parkin' lot
    Man, I don't know if the other side's ready or not

    But I hope you hit those gold streets on two wheels
    I hope your mansion in the sky's got a ten-acre field
    With some mud and some hubs you can lock in
    Make some thunder, make 'em wonder how you got in
    Hide your beer, hide your clear from the man upstairs
    Crank it loud, hold it down 'til I get there
    And when I do I hope you got some new stories to tell
    'Til then, give heaven some hell

    I was there when you raised your hand
    Heads bowed, singing just as I am
    Walkin' that aisle, prayin' that prayer
    Man, it ain't right but if you gotta be there

    I hope you hit those gold streets on two wheels
    Hope your mansion in the sky's got a ten-acre field
    With some mud and some hubs you can lock in
    Make some thunder, make 'em wonder how you got in
    Hide your beer, hide your clear from the man upstairs
    Crank it loud, hold it down 'til I get there
    And when I do I hope you got some new stories to tell
    'Til then, give heaven some hell

    I was there when you raised your hand (oh)
    Heads bowed, singing just as I am
    Man, it ain't right, man, it ain't fair
    I'll see you again
    But 'til then, give heaven some hell Writer/s: Ashley Gorley, Hunter Phelps, Michael Hardy, Benjamin Johnson
