Seven Nation Army lyrics by White Stripes
Here is the lyrics of this historic song that despite being played with a guitar everyone wants to make the riff with the bass
A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back
They’re gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
Because I can’t forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message coming from my eyes
Says leave it alone
Every single one’s got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
I’m gonna serve it to you
And that ain’t what you want to hear
But that’s what I’ll do
And the feeling coming from my bones
Says find a home
Far from this opera for evermore
I’m gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will sing no more
And the stains coming from my blood
Tell me go back home
