I said hail
I said hail the six strings
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Six strings that drew blood

Six strings! Six strings!
Six strings! Six strings!
Yeah, six strings that drew blood... blood

He got six strings! Six strings!
Six strings, baby! Six strings!

Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail... the six strings that drew blood

Guitar thug blew into town
His eyes like wheels spinnin' round
And jerkin' off at every sound
Bitin' his tongue and beatin' the ground
He got six strings

The mongrel foams, the mongrel barks
And dogs him deep into the dark
And it answers to the name of art
And could tear his mortal coil in half
He got six strings

I said hail
I said hail the six strings
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Six strings that drew blood

He got six strings! Six strings!
He got six strings! Six strings!
He got six strings that drew blood

Yeah, six strings, baby! Six strings!
Six strings! Six strings!

Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail the six strings that drew blood
Hail... the six strings that drew blood... blood

And in the bathroom under cover
Turns on one tap to discover
He's smashed his teeth out on the other
And to the mirror he says, "hey, don't fuck me, brother
I got six strings!"

Shooting death into his veins
Top-E as a tourniquet
But, he won't scare those rats of sound away
That plague both the master and the slave
Of the six strings

And I wrote these words across his grave...

I said hail
I said hail the six strings
Hail the six strings that drew blood
He got six strings that drew blood

Six strings! Six strings!
He got six strings! Six strings!
He got six strings that drew blood

Yeah, six strings! Six strings, baby!
Six strings! Six strings!

Hail the six strings that drew blood (x7)

Hail!
