Yelawolf - Trial By Fire Lyrics




Check, check, check...
This is Bones Owens to my right, right here
To my left DJ Klever
My name is Yelawolf
This is Trial By Fire

Uh
Back in 1979 it was a cold day in December
Mamma peeled the paint off the wall screamed
Baby's on the way
They rushed her to the hospital in that old Chevy truck
Running 90 miles an hour down them back roads
Blowing past the sheriff, in the woods smoke bellowing off the engine
Running hot, must of been a sign
They rushed her to the emergency room
Barely made it to the bed
A few minutes later I was screaming for my first breath
A little devil the doctor said
He's got that look in his eye y'know
Reminds me of mischief
Yeah this ones gonna be trouble I can tell it
And then the lights went
Then mamma said doctor somethings burning I can smell it

And it was trial by fire
I'm just under a plane singing to burn it down
You better watch your step
When I come around

Damn right, uh
You could hear lightning for miles around
And oak trees hitting the ground
The wind tore holds on that old Dixie flag on the capitol steps
Change is coming, my great grand mamma said
Quietly clutching her bible, sitting in a rocking chair smoking a cigarette
And the wood creep beneath the porch and the old dog moaned and cried
As the sirens passing by
And Mr. Williams brought a mean batch of that moonshine to the wake
You know one comes and one goes as they say
And they laid a flower on the grave
Buried on December 29th for robbing a bank
And killed by the police, see you in the next life old friend
Little did he know, his old friend was back again
As the son of Sheila Diane

And it was trial by fire
I'm just under a plane singing to burn it down
You better watch your step
When I come around

You know how the story goes
See I'm a curious soul
A straight bullet to some a chatter and whisper at night and the head of a following smoke a rebel at heart a devilish grin
A leader of men a preacher at ten
I was already in spiritual spin
Back in the saddle again
12s in the back of the trunk making it rattle again
Giving them nothing but trunk living
The baby the babies got powers the baby is harming
Fuck a church I'm a confession for profession
[?]

And it was trial by fire
I'm just under a plane singing to burn it down
You better watch your step
When I come around

    [Verse 1]
    Uh
    Back in 1979 it was a cold day in December
    Mamma peeled the paint off the wall, screamin'
    Babie's on the way
    They rushed her to the hospital in that old Chevy truck
    Running 90 miles an hour down them back roads
    Blowing past the sheriff, hid in the woods, smoke bellowing off the engine
    Running hot, must have been a sign
    They rushed her to the emergency room
    And barely made it to the bed
    A few minutes later I was screaming for my first breath
    "A little devil," the doctor said
    He's got that look in his eye, ya know?
    Reminds me of mischief
    Yeah this ones gonna be trouble I can tell it
    And then the lights went
    Then mamma said doctor something's burning, I can smell it

    [Verse 3]
    You know how the story goes, c'mon
    See me, I'm a curious soul
    A stray bullet to some a chatter and whisper at night and the head of a following storm, a rebel at heart, a devilish grin
    A leader of men, a preacher at ten
    I was already in to spiritual sin
    Back in the saddle again
    12s in the back of the trunk, making it rattle again
    Giving them nothing but punk
    Living, the baby, the babie's got powers, the baby is haunted
    Fuck a church, I'm a confession
    Professional, public annointed
    Came from the wrong side of the tracks
    Bring the wrong crowds out the back
    Keeping these gutter dogs raised
    With these alley way cats
    Seen what these others can't see
    My poetry is a reflection of ? up from the bottom
    And climbing that fucking tree, but I brought a chainsaw
    I come to build a house up out of it, chopping
    Limbs off this culture, and putting soliders up inside of it
    Nails, brick, mortar, board up the windows
    For the tornado, I'm a fatal blow to these honorable foes
    Bag up the hot potato

    [Hook]
    And it was trial by fire
    I'm just under a plane singing to burn it down
    You better watch your step
    When I come around
