Ryan Adams - The Rescue Blues Lyrics




Everybody wants you to be special
And everybody wants you to be high
They throw you down a rope when you're in trouble, baby
Screamin', "Save me"
Then they charge you with the rescue blues

And everybody wants to see you suffer
They know that you need the pain so much
They throw you up a rope when you're too high
To cruise, baby
Lord, you lose lady
Then they charge you with the rescue blues

And everybody wants to see you fall
That's why they always love to get you high
And everybody knows you need the pain so much, lady
Well, keep in touch, baby
Just don't charge me with your rescue blues

Ryan Adams The Rescue Blues Comments
  1. ManMonkey600

    I remember seeing Behind Enemy Lines in the theater in NYC. People went fucking bananas at the end scene where they come to rescue Burnett. It was a few months after 9/11 and the wounds of that shit were fresh as fuck. We all just wanted to cheer on the military forever.

  2. LongLive Gaming

    After I save everybody and get a medal of honor in ww3

  3. Malka89

    And everybody wants you to be special
    And everybody wants you to be high
    They throw you down a rope when you're in
    Trouble, baby
    Screamin', save me
    Then they charge you with the rescue blues
    Ah, the rescue blues, oh ah ah

    And everybody wants to see you suffer
    They know that you need the pain so much
    They throw you up a rope when you're too high
    To cruise, baby
    Lord, you lose lady
    Then they charge you with the rescue blues
    Ah, the rescue blues, oh ah ah

    And everybody wants to see you fall
    That's why they always love to get you high
    And everybody knows you need the pain so much, lady
    Well, keep in touch, baby
    Just don't charge me with the rescue blues
    Oh ah, rescue blues, oh ah ah

    There are two kinds of people in the world:


    1) Those who came here from Behind Enemy Lines.
    2) Those who came here from SCRUBS.


    Both of them love good music! Have a wonderful 2019 y'all! :)

    Dennis Bunn

    Those that listen to Ryan Adam's.

    I admit this is not my kind of music, but it fits perfectly at the end of Behind Enemy Lines. It actually gives me a happy feeling.......

  15. Kristofferson Flores

    Great song

  16. Gabriel Price

    The is a cool song

  17. marilyn Lundrigan

    Brilliant movie brilliant song...!

  18. Garney309

    Heard it on Scrubs. Good song!!

  19. Chris Murphy

    This track was the closing credit song on the film Behind Enemy Lines (2001)

    My Special Words: A great film and the performance by Owen Wilson and Gene Hackman was just remarkably good. Worth watching again and again. It is just an outstanding film of the 21st century.

  20. emile de verquilleux

    His album Gold indeed is what its called after; a true & great classic !

  21. Bonni Roller

    I've watched "Behind Enemy Lines" a thousand times & never tired of it! This is an awesome song perfect with the ending. The movie, to me, was never boring. It depicted horrors of war without being gratuitous. I was fascinated (I'm simple minded) with the film. It was all normal colors but right after the crash everything was in greys & black. Very little colors. The effects were amazing as well! I don't listen to the type of music he does, but this was great!

    La mejor parte de la cancion coincide con el saludo de hackman a los marinos en camara lenta impresionante!!!!!¡¡¡

    And everybody wants you to be special
    And everybody wants you to be high
    They throw you down a rope when you're in
    Trouble, baby

    Then they charge you with the rescue blues
    Ah, the rescue blues, oh ah ah

    And everybody wants to see you suffer
    They know that you need the pain so much
    They throw you up a rope when you're too high
    To cruise, baby
    Lord, you lose lady
    Then they charge you with the rescue blues
    Ah, the rescue blues, oh ah ah

    And everybody wants to see you fall
    That's why they always love to get you high

    Well, keep in touch, baby

    After this shitty election result, it helps to return to some of this things I love about America: Ryan Adams, for example.

    Stevie Pools

    im sure glad trump won make america great again

    Stevie Pools

    i hate the left

    william lydon

    And capitalization and punctuation too it seems...

    MegaSpideyman

    @hieroglyph321 In YOUR opinion, yes.

    And there's far, FAR more to the WORLD than bloody America.

    randy oguin

    your right.king obamarama was a joke and a swine.terrible election night when that dog was elected!

  38. Donnamarie Varesi

    Just love this song and how he sings it. His other stuff not my style.

    Franco Laveglia

    same here

    Tonya Bohanon

    not your style huh?
    well, "rescue blues" he wrote and sang, without all the gadgets at a run down inoperable naval base on the beach down in Mexico barefooted. he sand many more songs in public, and even made the remark, live and was video taped when he sang "when the stars go blue" live - he made the remark he had no recognizable songs, but that people might know "when the stars go blue". oddly he was not asked to wit for the movie BEHIND ENEMY LINES. that kinda hurt me for him because of yoy listen to a lot of his music, you slowly more and more begin to understand the man, which I am extremely attracted to, but it is because I have learned more about the man behind his music.
    more than that sir, at one point i was very sad having still to this day been alone since my divorce in 2012, when a stranger sent me a song sang by ryan adams video "a song for you, take me down to your dance floor" and I listened over and over and over and was literally able to see myself standing out in the rain or anywhere listening to that song and v dancing with ryan adams. still he thought he wasn't much on those type songs, but his singing is greater in ballads, in my opinion.
    I'm just acurrent barefoot country girl ex miss alabama most photogenic waiting on Mr right (my stems lover), and I pay is someone like ryan adams.
    but when I reached one of the lowest points in my life recently, to the point of suicide, there it was, right there in my face on my music screen "SAVE ME", written and recorded by RYAN ADAMS, when I was ready to l let it all go. I had never seen it before or heard it before. so I ask you, before you say what you just said "about his other stuff", please, please, listen to "A SONG FOR YOU" and "SAVE ME", by Ryan, and know I held the knife to my wrist at my lowest point when out popped SAVE ME by RYAN, and actually think of me in my lonliness by myself with.my own sad thoughts, when you hear that song SAVE ME that he thought was nothing (but it stopped the blade against my wrist and + my life).
    because for these reasons, If you ever kno RYAN ADAMS or someone that does, please.give him my number in Alabama (251-222-1450) and u tell him i said thank you and I'd like to meet him, with all of my heart.

  41. Pizza Problems

    There was this amazing flash movie trilogy on newgrounds called The Hunt: Operation Phoenix, that came out in 2003. It's a staple to my childhood, and has aged quite well. This is what they chose for their end credits song, I guess copyright was a lot easier to dodge in web 1.0

  42. Coreen Kolupailo

    Learned about Ryan last night & have lits if songs downloaded.....

  43. MegaColacho

    best sound for best move ending

  49. giobosnia

    hahahahh

  50. giobosnia

    you mean behind the enemy lines right?

  51. Marcus Clements

    Your paranoia is matched only by a complete absence of self-deprecation.

  52. Scoopy Johnson

    oh "RESCUE", lest talk about this big boy, what u saying that other countries cant help themselves with killing their child's, destroying their own homes, steeling their natural sources,, or wait! i do know now what does that mean:"RESCUE the American citizen and fuck every body else",damn ! wake up fagot and start living straight" big chipmunk"

    Tonya Bohanon

    Scoopy Johnson its a song, attached to a movie.....
    "fagot"? you're a little in the self preservation innuendo side. You need to do some growing..... then just grow away.....

  53. Jordan Smith

    Check him out in Bottle Rocket, The Minus Man, and Royal Tenenbaums (if you haven't) :).

  54. davidslfc

    cant believe i only found this guy today, what have i been missing :(

  55. k2Rob

    You are the only one here who thinks that.

  56. Smudgefizz

    The production & feel of the song & is close to "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Stones.

  57. tdubb3

    lee mat

    Joana Madrid i don't understand

  64. Theis Palm

    what does rescue blues exactly mean? :)

    martyn oliver

    When you win but... Loose at the end. In the film based on a true story... The pilot does indeed get rescued however the captain looses command of his ship for disobeying orders.

    In life we win something we desperately want but there is a price to pay.

    The rescue blues.

  65. Theis Palm

    Just saw "Behind Enemy Lines" on danish television, and i just had to find this song, thank you for uploading, and love to everybody out there, :)

  66. ozzyhead73

  70. Ciarán Brennan

    Perfect ending song :) Behind Enemy Lines as well as scrubs. delicious :D.

  71. DonPechito

    Sooo funny !! I don't know about you guys but i've came to search this song on Yt AFTER HAVING SEEN Behind enemy lines, and i see that nearly all the comments talk about the film !! :D I totally agree with you all, this song gives something else to the end of this movie, i specially love the part when admiral Reygard walks away from his carrier with this playing on the background ! Great song, i thought it was a 50's or 60's old blues song, but noo...there's still some musicians alive !

  72. mamalugi12

    me too!! wonderful ending from lt.chris burnett

  73. ozzyhead73

    thumbs up if you didnt get this from blackhawk down or scrubs!!!!! i got this the old fashioned way, BY LISTENING TO THE ALBUM!!!!! GREAT TUNE!!!

  74. ValerioChannel

    Beautiful song for Behind Enemy Lines!!! Great interpretation of Gene Hackman

  75. Nathendov

    Like if you're here because of Scrubs =)

  76. Matt Marriott

    ex-101st ...Amen ...wish there were more!

  77. nicnoc1976

    I wish there were less comments about a film and more about the song!
    I haven't seen the film this was in, but the song is very special to me. I get goose bumps when he sings "you're in trouble, baby" don't know what that is! x

  78. supportourtroops1

    33,611 should have thumbed up the video instead of being lazy. I know I did =D and Behind Enemy Lines was the best war movie ever!

  79. Patrick McInerney

    Ryan Adams is #1 in my mind

  80. ADAMAKATHEPUNISHER

  83. cyeber2004

    A song for all Navy Pilots across the US....

  84. divisioneight

    My favorite scene was watching the slow mo of the Admiral walking the deck of his CVN while she made a slow port turn, waving to his crew. Taking his reputation from the hands of the bureaucrats knowing he did the right thing.

  85. Wayne Wayan

    i love Behind Enemy Lines and this song!!!!

  91. Saurabh Malkar

    A song with beautiful pearls of poetic excellence. True-to-life lyrics, excellent composition and music. Yet, sad to see that it is under-rated.

  92. Jack

    Best Song ever and way to under ratted
