"The Unrepentant" as written by and Steve Earle....
In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
Stands alone in the pale moonlight
Screams out in defiance

He's got no one to turn to
You could talk 'til you turn blue
He'd just turn his back on you
Ain't no compromising

Because he's totally untamed
No fear of the unnamed
Ah man but he'll take the blame
Someone's gotta do it, someone's got to

Yeh now he's out on the highway
He's got the key and the right of way
Tank is full and his toll's paid
Hellbound and determined

Yeah he run a dangerous payload
When he comes to the crossroads
Ah, man it's all timed to explode
You'll just see the sky burnin'

Because he's totally untamed
No fear of the unnamed
Yeh man but he'll take the blame
Someone's gotta do it, someone's got to

Now he's standin' at hell's door
With a bad attitude and a forty-four
The devil said, "What's up man
Now what you come here for?"

He said, "Man, let's just get to it"
He said, "I always heard that you were the bad one
There's a few places I ain't been, a few things I ain't done
You got your pitchfork and I got my gun"
Someone's gotta do it

Because he's totally untamed
No fear of the unnamed
Yeh man but he'll take the blame
Someone's gotta do it

Because he's totally untamed
Yeah no fear of the unnamed
Stand up like man, take all the blame
'Cause someone's gotta do it, someone's got to
Someone's gotta do it
Someone's gotta do it
Totally untamed
