Wild rebel rose, the kids used to tease you
Wild rebel rose, every time they'd see you
In those black turtle necks in mid July
Wearin' too much makeup 'round your eyes

Wild rebel rose, I didn't know you
Wild rebel rose, so I never told you
How I'd watch from the house across the street
When those blue lights came around
At least three times a week

It's hard for anyone to understand
Why at sixteen you just up and ran
They didn't know you only knew your daddy's love
Like the back of his hand

I heard the shots, saw you hit the door
I snuck in and grabbed that pistol off the floor
Don't you worry they won't find it that's for sure

Wild rebel rose, the kids used to tease you
Wild rebel rose, every time they'd see you
In those black turtle necks in mid July
Wearin' too much makeup 'round your eyes

Hmm, oh, wild, wild, wild rebel rose
They didn't know, ooh, yeah, hmm
