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
