Year zero and I'm back in the fields,
Hey La, Hey Hey Yo!
Demolishing history for the new regime,
Hey La, Hey Hey Yo!
What were our virtues are now our sins,
Hey La, Hey Hey Yo!
The bad move out and the worse come in.

Big god call from a raging sky,
Hey La, Hey Hey Yo!
In me you're born and in me you die
Hey La, Hey Hey Yo!
Big God come and go as he please,
Hey La, Hey Hey Yo!
Leave the little man crying on his bended knees.

Who will gimme shelter?
Who will keep me warm?
Long night beneath the storm.

They say on the steamboat, "Kurtze, he dead!"
They had a lot of trouble at the riverhead,
Something went wrong, now it's loose in the world,
Breaks the back of a man and the heart of a young girl.

Who will gimme shelter?
Who will keep me warm?
Long night beneath the storm.

Well hand me that shovel, gonna make my stand,
In the shadow of a mountain, in the belly of the land,
And who's gonna be there, at my side,
When the river breaks in the face of the rising tide?

Who will gimme shelter?
Who will keep me warm?
Long night beneath the storm
