Linda Ronstadt - Raise the Dead

Hank Williams died when I was five

He sang I'll never get out of this world alive

Now it's been a long time since I was that kid

And I've seen a lot more than Hank ever did

I've done the down and out in every dark end dive

But I'll never get out of your love alive

Sam Cooke met the woman at the well

She told him that his song was something

he could never sell

And I think he knew a change was gonna come

Still he lived too fast and he died too young

Well, dying young I have survived

But I'll never get out of your love alive

I got washed in the blood of Bill Monroe

When he sang about the blues in the body and soul

He believed in a God that could raise the dead

Still, it's a mighty dark night to travel he said

I've seen a mighty dark night and I made that drive

But I'll never get out of your love alive

Robert Johnson had a hellhound on his trail

Drove him to the coffin like a hammer and a nail

It takes a powerful man to carry that load

When you're trying to beat the devil

to the old crossroad

I wrestled the devil, lived to testify

But I'll never get out of your love alive

I'll never get out of your love alive

Oh I'll never get out of your love alive

I'll never get out of your love alive
