  Live, Toronto ON - 17.apr.1980  

I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody

I can manipulate people as well as anybody
Twist 'em and turn 'em, burst 'em and burn 'em
I can make believe I love almost anybody
Squeeze 'em and tease 'em, hold 'em an' control 'em 
??? know you might say it's not the flesh that it needs
I've been down that road, i know where it leads.

I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not today, not tonight, not tomorrow, no never, no way!

I can deceive people as well as anybody
I got the vision, i can cause division
I can twist the truth as well as anybody
I paid lot of prices, know all the devices
But it don't suit my purposes and it ain't my [personal??? / goal???]
To gain the whole world an' lose my soul.

I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not for brother, not for mother, not for sister, not for brother, no way!

Smoking goes on forever, on a one-way ticket to burn
A place reserved for the devil
And for all those that done evil
A place of darkness where you can never return.

I can influence people as well as anybody
I've been all round it, i know [???] sound it
I can mislead people almost anybody
Wine 'em an' dine 'em, find 'em an' blind 'em
[????????]
I see through man's delusions, i see through his façades.

I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not for mother, not for father, not for sister, not for brother, no way!

I can write and steal as well as anybody
I know the chases, hide [????] faces
I can influence people as well as anybody
I got the vision to cause any kind of division
But it don't suit my purposes and it ain't my goal
To gain the whole world an' give up my soul.

I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not for father, not for mother, not for sister, not for brother, no way!  up

Footsteps fallin' on the crowded room and the leaves are dyin'

Flaws in the make-up like headin' on to break up

Even keep goin' if you're drugged, beaten or shot.

And for all those that done evil
A place of darkness and shame, you never return.

  Live, Gospel tour - 1980  

I can manipulate people as well as anybody
Force 'em and burn 'em, twist 'em and turn 'em
I can make believe I'm in love with almost anybody
Haul 'em and control 'em, squeeze 'em and tease 'em
All that satisfies the fleshly needs
I've been down that road i know what it needs.

But I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not today, not tonight, not tomorrow, no never, no way!

I can persuade people as well as anybody
I got the vision but it could cause division
I can twist the truth as well as anybody
I know how to do it
But it don't suit my purposes and it ain't my goal
To gain the whole world, ut give up my soul.

And I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not for father not for mother not for sister not for brother, no way!

Smoke arises forever, got a one-way ticket to burn
A place reserved for the devil
And for all of those that done evil
Places of darkness, a trace you can never return.

I can write and steal from people as well as anybody
Know all the devices, paid a lot of prices
I can influence people as well as anybody
Go right up to 'em, i know how to do 'em
Don't need to depend on tricks or on cards
I can see through man's delusions, I can see through his façades

And I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
No, I ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not today, not tonight, not tomorrow, no never, no way!  up

I can mislead people as well as anybody
Burn 'em and roll 'em, rob 'em and hold 'em
Won't get my story in tricks or cards
I can see through man's delusions, i can see through his façades.

Ain't Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody 7


  Live, Gospel tour - LA Nov. 17, 1980 

Snowflakes falling on the crowded room and the leaves are dying
Dying in the bedroom, crying in the bedroom
I can feel it on the rooftops, I hear two lovers sighing
One's got four eyes, another's wearing a disguise
Oh, baby try whether you're leaving me or not
Even keep going if you're drugged, beaten or shot.

Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not today, not tonight, not tomorrow, no way!

In the cold blue dress you say ''Adìos amigos''
I proved it for a while, I could make you smile
I can hear the footsteps of the battered ego
Flaws in your make-up, beginning to break up
Well, child don't you understand
Be a part of your children and I can't be your man.

Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not today, not tonight, not tomorrow, no way!

Smoke arises for ever, on a one-way ticket to burn
A place reserved for the devil
And for all those that done evil
A place of darkness and shame, you can never return.

You can make believe I'm gone but can you hear it babe?
From Nashville to Texas, from Houston to Nashville
I can see two judges sitting in a hospital room
I keep on believing. I knew you were leaving
Shot my pony down and your breaking my heart
Even got to keep going if you're drugged beaten or shot.

Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not today, not tonight, not tomorrow, no way!

Snowflakes falling on the crowded room and the leaves are dying
Hunted on the river, so cold I could shiver
I can hear two lovers on the rooftops, I can hear them sighing
One's got four eyes, another is wearing a disguise
Oh why are you leaving, you're going for my heart
You're leaving me baby with your legs far apart.

Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Ain't gonna go to hell for anybody
Not today, not tonight, not tomorrow, no way!  up
