In the midnight rain
Johnny throws a stance
Says "love me tender love me true"
And in the doorway there
She looks up at him
And she says
"you know I do"
But johnny's on the run
Cause he stole a gun
He needs to disappear
Johnny shot a man
And now he's scared
She whispers in his ear
Rebel say a prayer
That there's a place somewhere
Where rock and roll goes on
And we'll be free
There's glory waiting there
Can feel it in the air
Rebel say a prayer
(rebel say a prayer rebel say a prayer)
I'll meet you there
(rebel say a prayer)
Johnny pulls her close
Says I've got to go
Cause they'll come for me tonight
And he turns to leave
But she won't let go
And they stand there in the light
Baby where you go
That's where I will go
Love never seemed so clear
If it's the last thing in the world we do
We've gotta get out of here
Rebel say a prayer
That there's a place somewhere
Where rock and roll goes on
And we'll be free
Where cadillacs have wings
A place where elvis sings
For you and me
So baby take my hand
We'll find the promised land
Above the stars tonight
There's graceland waitin' there
Believe it if you dare
And rebel say a prayer
And the cops are waiting down the street
They both know that there's no way out
Johnny pulls his gun
And all hell breaks loose
She cries "i№ll remember this"
As they№re cut down in the final kiss
Rebel say a prayer
That there's a place somewhere
Where rock and roll goes on
And we'll be free
Where cadillacs have wings
A place where elvis sings
For you and me
So baby take my hand
We'll find the promised land
Above the stars tonight
There's graceland waitin' there
Believe it if you dare
And rebel say a prayer
(rebel say a prayer rebel say a prayer)
Rebel say a prayer
(rebel say a prayer rebel say a prayer)
Above the stars tonight
(rebel say a prayer rebel say a prayer)
If you dare
(rebel say a prayer)
Rebel say a prayer
(rebel say a prayer rebel say a prayer)
And I'll meet you there
(rebel say a prayer rebel say a prayer)
Rebel say a prayer
(rebel say a prayer rebel say a prayer)
I'll meet you there
(rebel say a prayer)
Yeah
