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
Joel from Saint Louis, MoProbably my favorite Bon Jovi song.
Steven from San Antonio, Tx"I'm what cain was to abel" greatest line in any song i've ever heard.
William H Bonney from Lawrence, KsGood song and it fits well with the movie
Lee-ann from Perth, AustraliaEmilio Estevez asked Jon if he could use Wanted Dead or Alive for Young Guns II but Jon felt the lyrics didn't fit (since Wanted is actually about being a rock star). Instead Jon offered to write another song and the result was Blaze of Glory. He was given the script and wrote the other songs that featured on his first solo album.
Matt from Milton, PaI love this song. It is frigging awesome
Mike from Hueytown , AlBad A** song ! Their best hit !
Jen from Ontario, Canadagreat song!!!!!!:)jon bon jovi is da man!!!
Calvin from Denver, CoI envision this song being the background to a Malcolm Reynold music video. If you dont know who Mal is, go see Firefly ASAP.
Industrial_dolphin from Wakefield, Englandthis is a great song. the lyrics are amazing right from the start."i wake up in the mornin' an i raise my weary head,with an old coat for a pillow and the earh was last nights bed" i mean how awsome is that? jon bon jovi sure has a talent for lyrics. plus it has (has do all bon jovi songs!) an awsome key change near the end! incidentally, elton john plays piano on this album too!
Amy from Dallas, Txi dont like the whole cowboy thing, but Jon looks hot in the video
Anthony from Dalles, Txya, one of his best. he makes alot of cowboy referances in his songs
Adrian from Merthyr Tydfil, Alwhen asked to record a song for the young guns soundtrack Jon was heavily influenced by the song 'knocking on heavens door' by bob dylan which coincidentally was used as the soundtrack for 'pat garratt and Billy the kidd' years earlier.
Jared from Meadville, PaFeatures legendary guitarist Jeff Beck on the slide guitar solo
Alaina from Arlington, TxI feel this is one of his best.
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
