The Last Resort (Live) Lyrics

The Last Resort (Live) - Eagles

She came from Providence

 

The one in Rhode Island

 

Where the old world shadows hang

 

Heavy in the air

 

She packed her hopes and dreams

 

Like a refugee

 

Just as her father came across the sea

 

She heard about a place people were smilin'

 

They spoke about the red man's way

 

And how they loved the land

 

And they came from everywhere

 

To the Great Divide

 

Seeking a place to stand

 

Or a place to hide

 

Down in the crowded bars

 

Out for a good time

 

Can't wait to tell you all

 

What it's like up there

 

Some called it paradise

 

I don't know why

 

Somebody laid the mountains low

 

While the town got high

 

Then the chilly winds blew down

 

Across the desert

 

Through the canyons of the coast

 

To the Malibu

 

Where the pretty people play

 

Hungry for power

 

To light their neon way

 

And give them things to do

 

Some rich men came and raped the land

 

Nobody caught 'em

 

Put up a bunch of ugly boxes

 

And Jesus people bought 'em

 

And they called it paradise

 

The place to be

 

They watched the hazy sun

 

Sinking in the sea

 

You can leave it all behind

 

And sail to Lahaina

 

Just like the missionaries did

 

So many years ago

 

They even brought a neon sign

Which said Jesus is coming

 

Brought the white man's burden down

 

Brought the white man's reign

 

Who will provide the grand design

 

What is yours and what is mine

 

'Cause there is no more new frontier

 

We have got to make it here

 

We satisfy our endless needs

 

And justify our bloody deeds

 

In the name of destiny

 

And in the name of God

 

And you can see them there

 

On Sunday morning

 

Stand up and sing about

 

What it's like up there

 

They call it paradise

 

I don't know why

 

You call someplace paradise

 

 

Kiss it goodbye
