Song Lyrics

[Robbie Robertson = Normal, Bono = Bold]


Are you ready to take the heat
Are you ready to blow the steam
Are you ready to bag the street
You’ve got nothing to lose – but your chains


Look over yonder, Apollo at a distance
You can hear his music if you listen to the wind
(blow)
I want to be there – I want to be right there
I want to see it with my own eyes

Bear witness, I’m wailing like the wind
Come bear witness, the half-breed rides again
In these hands, I’ve held the broken dream
In my soul, I’m howling at the moon

Testimony / Whoa-ah
Testimony / Whoa-ah
Declare yourself, I will testify
Testimony / Whoa-ah
Testimony / Whoa-ah
State the truth, I will testify

I had a revelation like runaway horses
Took to the road with a carnival show (roll on)
Those golden days on Smokey Mountain (lord)
Playing guitar in a one man band (that’s right)

Bear witness, I’m howling at the moon
Come bear witness, I’ve danced among
the ruins
In these shoes, I’ve walked a crooked mile
All my life I been searching for the nightbird

Testimony, testimony
Declare yourself – I will testify
Testimony / Ah-ha
Testimony / Whoa-ah
Speak the truth, I will testify

Are you ready to take the heat
Are you ready to blow the steam
Are you ready to bag the street
You got nothing to lose – but your chains

For forty days and forty nights
I come across the desert
Apollo right by my side (rave on)

Bear witness, I’m wailing like the wind
Come bear witness, the half-breed rides again
In these hands, I’ve held the broken dream
In my soul, I’m howling at the moon

Testimony, testimony (tell them)
Declare yourself – I will testify
Testimony (oh oh), testimony
Speak the truth, I will testify

Testimony, testimony / Mmm this is my testimony

I will testify

Testimony ah ha
Testimony whoa ha
Speak the truth
I will testify
