Bruce Springsteen – Gave It A Name lyrics
In the fields of the lord
Stood Abel and Cain
Cain slew Abel 'neath the black rain
At night he couldn't stand the guilt or the blame
So he gave it a name
So he gave it a name
So he gave it a name

Billy got drunk, angry at his wife
He hit her once, he hit her twice
At night he'd lie in bed, he couldn't stand the shame
So he gave it a name
So he gave it a name
So he gave it a name

Pa told me Son, one thing I know is true
Poison snakes bites you, you're poison too
At night I can feel that poison runnin' 'round my veins
