Words & Music: Rattlesnake Annie

Rebel Child

Tonight I’m thinking of you son
While you’re sitting in a county jail in Texas
I guess that I should feel to blame
My Southern blood runs through you veins
And you were born to be a Rebel Child

I’m not taking up for any wrong you’ve done
I know you’ve strayed off the path in your search for the truth
So spread your wings and fly away
And stay with me a while
‘Cause your Mama wants to hold her Rebel Child

It was 1963 in Alabama
When God sent you to stay with me a while
You saw the man walk on the moon
Your brothers die in Vietnam
Oh you couldn’t help but be a Rebel Child

How we loved those nights and days of country music
On accordion you’d play the Tennessee Waltz
In the starlight soft and low
We’d walk that Brazos river road
A haven of rest for a Rebel Child
