Metallica - Ronnie Rising Medley Lyrics




[A Light In The Black intro]

[Tarot Woman]

I don't wanna go
Something tells me no, no, no, no
But traces in the sand
The lines inside my hand say go go go

Beware of a place
A smile on a bright shiny face
I'll never return, how do you know

Tarot woman, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

She can take you there
The entrance to the fair, my, my, my
Ride the carousel
Cast a magic spell, you can fly, fly, fly

Beware of a place
A smile on a bright shiny face
I'll never return, how do you know

Tarot woman, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

[Stargazer]

High noon
Oh I'd sell my soul for water
Nine years' worth
Of breakin' my back
There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard
See how he glides
Why he's lighter than air
Oh I see his face

Where is your star
Is it far, is it far, is it far
When do we leave
I believe, I believe, yes, I believe

In the heat and the rain
With whips and chains
Just to see him fly
So many die

We built a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
Just to see him fly
Don't know why

Now where do we go

[Kill The King]

Danger, danger the Queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger and life about to spill
Oh no move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king
Tear him down
Kill the king, yeah
Strike him down

Power, power happens every day
Power, devour all along the way
Oh no, move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
And fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king
Strike him down

Treason, treason, the spectre looms again
Treason, reason, the realm is safe and then
Oh no, move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the rainbow
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king, yeah
Tear him down
Kill the king, yeah
Got to take his crown

    Yeah yeah kill the king
    Shout him down

  6. riffknot

    great love it great turn on

  7. Simón Valdés

    Without a doubt, Metallica is the best band of all time. Ronnie's voice was spectacular, but James is able to take any song and take it to another level ... they are masters of music.

  8. metalponent

    Kirk is on fire on Kill the King!!

  9. Chloe Jean

    the girl in the front with the american shirt, is that Lzzy Hale?

  10. Johnny Bravo

    3:30 this shout has really soul

  11. Johnny Bravo

    Aaah his voice is amazing

  12. BlackMage Felix

    This is rad as shit.

  13. Johnny Cotton

    That was intense 🤟🤟🤟

  14. Caio Baldini

    James doesn´t need to sing like dio, higher notes? James sings like james, and this is incredible. Thanks Metallica for this cover song! Play it alive please!

  15. Tobias Crow

    Why don't their own albums sound half as good as this?

    Yuuma C

    their own stuff is more focused on appeal to commercial/mainstream public

  16. Poiraud vincent

    WOOAAAWW !!

  17. Wiktoria Brus

    Perfect. Made my today's morning

  18. James Chastain

    Should have been on disc one!!!!

    Jayson Raphael Murdock

    Nice Art Bell pic.

    James Chastain

    @Jayson Raphael Murdock yes!!!!!! Kudos to you my man

  19. James Chastain

    There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard!!!!!!!

  20. Georgiy

    Метла, ну нафига ты прикрыла тот ролик, который был? Хоть уж решили сами выложить вместо того, то хоть картинку ту же бы оставили! Та была уместнее.

  21. h1e2x3

    James learnt how to sing. Not Dio level of course, but very good vocals anyway.

  23. Emanuel Rodríguez

    Personally I think play medleys can make bands to show all their "Musicianship".... I mean, bands like Dream Theater, Genesis (yes, they did very fucking cool medleys) and of course Metallica. All of three bands (my favorites absolutely) are the fucking best when they play and put together all their best songs. This Dio Medley blew my mind the 1st time I listened to. Very fucking awesome!!! Same as Mercyful Fate medley in Garage Inc, the Justice Medley in the early 90’s, Kill/Ride Medley in Load/Reload era.... fucking epic Medleys!

  24. Milandrea_91

    4:16 START THE CUMSHOT 😍😍😍🤩🤩

    pimp daddy jones

    Lmao this comment is funny

  25. Not a Homosexual

    People talking about the length. Listen to Dream Theater's Octavarium

  27. Dougie Backus

    METALLICA is a Great original band and cover band

  28. Jason Fox

    I got goosebumps when the opening of kill the king showed up.

  29. EdgyFinsk

    Hetfield would've made a surprisingly good hair/power metal singer

    King Greed

    EdgyFinsk nah, Hetfield from the 80’s was way too angry for hair metal. Listen to the lyrics for Blackened, that is some angry shit.

    S Tarek

    Only if he cuts off his testicles.

  30. Michael Frankowski

    I think metallica does better on covers than their own songs
    ....well some of them!!! This belongs on the garage days stuff as extra mterial!!! Glad they they released it anyway...metallicas cover of remember tomorrow is awesome too!!!

    King Greed

    Michael Frankowski come on, they have 5 legendary albums. Most bands would be lucky to even have 1 album considered legendary

  31. roversberg

    ronnie is my god and how you perform this song is why i love metallica,thnx guys...#myroots

  32. MotorGoblin

    Well fuck me. Loving this to death.

  33. Geeky Matt138

    The 2nd half of the medley owns. Without Ronnie's vocal range, it all comes down to the riffs... and those are delivered by the truckload starting at 2:50.

  34. Tom Tanaka

    Kill the King sounds amazing!

    Tieu Kha Vu

    The only song in the medley which was recorded in full length.

    TetrisShark70

    @Tieu Kha Vu and honestly for good reason, cause it's easily the strongest part of the medley without a doubt. The entire thing rocks for sure but that section especially takes it to a whole new level of badass.

    RodHammett95

    it's brilliant!

  35. Thomas Ackerly

    Still awesome

  36. Michael F. Bender

    They need to play this live!

  37. Nathan Kent

    Tuning?

    zuccmygrape _

    Half step down from E standard

  38. Romchikthelemon

    96 people had never been on any mountain.

  39. Master Chief323

    Gotta say,hardwired and this restored my love for metallica

    Vlad Pro

    come on, Death Magnetic was a stellar f'n record

    Tieu Kha Vu

    @Vlad Pro Dispite the clipping Album Mix. Yes. great record.

    Daniel Khmelnitsky

    It's a stretch to say Death Magnetic was a great record. Yes, it is a return to form, but it's just too dragged out as a whole and the songs are overdone. It can just get boring after a little bit. But it's not a terrible record, it has its moments and hooks.

  40. A Foster

    When something isn't as good as the original is kind of sad....but its a tribute, fair enough. Sad to hear where Dio should be singing.....and Hetfield goes for an easy notes (4:21)
    I suppose its a nice reminder that Dio was the boss of this music and only a tribute at end of the day....fair enough

    JugularTV

    Hetfield saves the higher note for the end of the song.

    Horus SC

    When somebody doesn't have anything intelligent to say and takes it on YouTube's comments,
    knowing deep inside s/he will never achieve Metallica's level of achievements.

    Must be a bitch being you, eh.

    speterbilt

    Lame ass comment. This song kicks ass

    Robert Williams

    Fair point. Dio could be called a better singer than Hetfield. However, Hetfield is a better all around musician and is the frontman of what could be called the one of the greatest and most versatile bands in history.

  41. multijamesbondfan

    When I first ever heard this, I'm not sure I knew this was a cover song, until I looked at the booklet in the Hardwired To Self Destruct Album 3 Disc Bonus Disc Edition, and I think I was thinking this is a cover?, I thought it sounded like an original I guess. A link to part of the original by Rainbow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83qBRmM00R4

  42. itzperry

    Favorite part 5:57 and on

    King Greed

    itzperry nice arpeggios

  43. Jakob Baker

    2:47 best part of the song

    Rockpig1969

    and a fair bit lamer than the original Cozy Powel intro.

  44. UnYin99

    Damn! Hats off to Hetfield! Not afraid to throw it out there!

    Master Chief323

    Hatlessfield

    Heisenbooger

    @Master Chief323 ha

  45. UnYin99

    Ooooh! Ah-Haa! Yeah-u-eaaaah!

  46. JuurYZ

    I dont get it why people dislike something like this.

    Dylan Burling

    No idea what good music is clearly

    Michael F. Bender

    Me neither JuurYZ.

    Michael F. Bender

    Apparently not Dylan Burling

    Rockpig1969

    Cos it's formulaic by the numbers stuff with no flare, risk or anything. The originals had a feeling and vibe sorely missing from this.

  47. aUtiSmO

    Its like there "Mercyful Fate" song, but its Dio

    Twisted Wizard

    that's a cover

    Frank F

    Twisted Wizard everyone knows that dude.No one claims it isnt

  48. Austin Walls

    Damn Lars' drumming is on point in this damn album.

    Mark Godinho

    @Malcolm Kyeremeh you just proved his point. 80's and 90's Lars was great. He is a shadow of his former self nowadays. Plays unnecessary fills, can't keep time, can't do double bass except for playing One.

    Malcolm Kyeremeh

    @Mark Godinho he didnt say that though

    Miguel Alejandria

    @Mark Godinho jajajajaja what are you talking about? Lars dont play the double bass on one, he do play double bass on other song, but on one, he does not do it for "protest" jajajaja he plays really good on live, maybe you should watch some live videos

    Mark Godinho

    @Miguel Alejandria I've watched hundreds of live videos and seen them live. The only song he consistently uses the double bass on is One. Maybe you should watch some live videos lol

    Shallex

    @Mark Godinho he may consistently use the double bass on One, but he doesn't do consistent double bass on One

  49. Z.R B-42

    Bloody love this
    Amazing tribute and great addition to Hardwired to Self Destruct

  50. The Metallica Girl

    Now on the bonus disc of Hardwired...To Self Destruct ❤

    Dylan

    The Metallica Girl I went so long not even knowing this existed.. it’s amazing.

    oni 2.4543533 I'm proud of my brother

    Whatever

  51. Cody T

    I love this shit

    Z.R B-42

    Cody T Hell yeah man!

  52. OfficialDemonboiuk

    This is a awesome song, I usually get bored of songs that's too long but this keeps me entertained, hopefully my band will agree to cover this

    Dylan

    Persecution So did they?

    Heisenbooger

    Did they?

    Jason Fox

    The people wants to know
