I am a leader but you will not follow me.
I ain’t no preacher for I'm full of blasphemy.
See you in hell boys.
See you in hell boys.
Hey!

Like an angel who’d been dancing with some devils.
I'm a bad girl with a hope for better day.
My laughter is spiced with mischief.
I won’t toss salt, kiss it up, or pray.
When you offer pink or blue I’ll take the blackest.
When you offer only two I’ll offer three.
When you point me in a direction I’ll run backwards.
And at the border of utopia I’ll toast to anarchy!

‘Cause fire and rock I'm coming home to you.
Well, I'm picking the bones out of my dinner stew.
Open up the gates of hell and roll me through.
Fire and rock I'm coming home to you.

I am a leader but you will not follow me.
I ain’t no preacher for I'm full of blasphemy.
See you in hell boys.
See you in hell boys.
Hey!

So you’re saying Satan’s army is rising up soon.
While if it is I'm secretary of no state.
Got riches, rocks, and bottles in my tool pouch.
My desire is societies jail bait.

‘Cause there’s tons of guys moping about the workday.
Dimes by the dozens.
Their song weighs a thousand pounds.
But there’s nothing like a lady with a buzz saw.
I just might build your house but I just might tear it down.

‘Cause fire and rock I'm coming home to you.
Well, I'm picking the bones out of my dinner stew.
Open up the gates of hell and roll me through.
Fire and rock I'm coming home to you.

I am a leader but you will not follow me.
I ain’t no preacher for I'm full of blasphemy.
See you in hell boys.
See you in hell boys.

Yeah, barkeeper we’ll surely have another.
To the witches, to the goblins, and the trolls.
I’ll be coming to recruit your rebel children.
There ain’t no use in locking doors,
There’s one of me in every hole.

With mud on my boots,
and blood on my jeans.
I’ll take those pretty dresses,
Tear ‘em at the seams.
Roll me through the gate of hell.
Ah please.
And I’ll be back in your daughter’s dreams.

I am a leader but you will not follow me.
I ain’t no preacher for I'm full of blasphemy.
See you in hell boys.
See you in hell
See you in hell boys.
See you in hell.
See you in hell boys.
Haha!

    General CommentThis song is so amazing. the first verse blows my mind. It shows Peterson's ability to be an amazing songwriter, "I'm a bad girl with a hope for better days, my laughter is spiced with mischief" and is amzing ability as a revolutionary, "On the boarder of utopia i'll toast to anarchy!"

    General CommentIt's amazing what erik can do with a few simple chords and a basic melody. Some of his songs seem almost too incredible to be real when you hear them. I've heard he can really get an audience tapping their toes and clapping along to his music, and I can honestly picture that when I listen to this jaw-drapping song. This is one of my favorite songs to play on the guitar. It's truly inspiring.
