Ronnie Lyrics - Metallica

Review The Song (10)



Story starts
Quiet town
Small town boy
Big time frown
Never talks
Never plays
Different path
Lost his way

The streets are red
Red I'm afraid
There's no confetti
No parade
Nothing happens in this boring place
But oh my god how it all did change
Now they all pray
Blood stain wash away

sponsored links
He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

I heard him
He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

I always said
Something wrong
With little strange
Ronnie Long
Never laughed
Never smiled
Talked alone for miles and miles and miles

Gallow calls
Son I say
Keep your smile and laugh all day
Think once again in this boring place
For little boys how they soon change

Now they all pray
Blood stain wash away

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

I heard him
He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

(Spoken)
Yeah, well all the green things died
When Ronnie moved to this place
He said
Don't you dare ask
Why I'm cursed to wear this face

Now we all know why
The children called him Ronnie Frown
When he pulled that gun from his pocket
They all fall down, down, down

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

I heard him
He screamed
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

That's right
All things wash away
They all fall down
But blood stained the sun today

All things wash away
And they all fall down
But blood stained the sun today

Load Re-Load Era | Reviewer: Izzy | 12/6/11

The Load era of Metallica was an exprimentation of blues, country , and Metal. These are stand alone albums. You got some great songs and some weak ones but still...great music...lots of dymamics too. The Load demos are to die for King Nothing sounds different from the demo...Low Mans lyric is another.. even 2x4 at Donn in 1995 was a in progress work...if they had come out with Black album II..it would have been a disaster for the band....
On that note....
Death Magnetic is the missing album between Justice and the black album ...IMO



Great experimental Metallica | Reviewer: Jaymz | 5/31/10

This song is one of the greatest showcases by Metallica to prove their mantle in the bluesy-metal genre, althogh the Acoustic Metal album still beats it. The manner in which Ronnie is described in small lines sounds real nice. And the whole rhythm of the guitars through the song really grips you in its atmosphere. I'd give two thumbs up to Metallica for this wonderful little gem of the Load-Reload era.



as riffs go... | Reviewer: meu | 9/9/09

... this one is really cool. Sure, Sad But True it ain't, Master it ain't, it ain't Bellz nor Ctulhu, but all the same it has a conspicuous Seek & Destroy signature, don't ya agree? Just slower, but Kill'em All still, esp. considering the lyrics ;) Although what I really like best is one of the verse guitars, the one with mute pick strokes... Always blew my mind. Regretfully, they could have done with a lot more stylish bluesy licks & harmonies in this song, that would make it everlasting instead of just plain unique ;) This is the song where a guest Slash solo would have been a great idea.

And if you grumble about this one, how about the hurdy-gurdy in "Low Man's Lyric" on reLOAD, huh? Still a great song though, even if doesn't compare with, say, The Unforgiven.



Cobot | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/8/09

I respectfully disagree, I find Outlaw torn, King Nothing and especially the S&M remake of Bleeding Me to be some of Metallicas Best songs.

Load and Reload have some really nice songs.
I agree with ML, Metallica decides what kind of music to write and that defines what "real metallica" is. You can't hust pick out a few songs that you like and say that is the real metallica, that's just nonsense.



Just enjoy the music | Reviewer: ML | 8/28/09

a great song,I'd call it awesome bluesy country metal... and everything Metallica makes IS real Metallica so everyone who just can't stop talking nonsense has to move to another band if you just like things like KIll em all or w/e Why would anyone record the same thing all over? rhetorical question as I'm not coming back here and I don't argue and "waste my hate" on narrow minded people



Liked it, but... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/3/09

...to osso, right back at you, fuck you. Load/Reload were good rock, but they weren't the real Metallica, same as Saint Anger. Same to you, Nims--NONE of the Load/Reload/St.Anger songs are even in the top 20 best Metallica songs...save Mama Said.

But, eh, that's not really to the point. I did really like this song, even though it's definitely not their best work. Kinda bluesy. If you like that aspect of it, I HIGHLY recommend you check out Acoustic Metal, their acoustic album complete with harmonicas and slide guitars. It's simply amazing.



good change | Reviewer: Galen | 9/11/07

Been a while since I heard the song, and compared to what there usual tune would be, its actually a really nice shift of the usual Metallica guitar playing itself, and singing.



love it | Reviewer: osso | 9/4/07

i love this one!it really shows the bluesy sides of load.i know it`s many who don`t like this song and the loads,but fuck them.i think it was cool that they experimented with more blues/rock albums.



Brilliant Song | Reviewer: Nims | 8/13/07

I cant understand why some people dislike the "Load/Reload" era but in my opinion some of the greatest rock songs by Metallica were in these albums-"Ronnie" being one of the best. I'm only young, and these two albums were what I grew up on so I suppose a lot of other people cant see the pure genius of songs like "King Nothing" and "Fixxxer".
I love this song not only because of the amazing guitar rifts by the great Kirk Hammett, but also of the whole feel and mood just engulfs you and thats all you can think of afterwards.My favourite parts are the introductory guitar solo, and the:

(Spoken)
Yeah, well all the green things died
When Ronnie moved to this place
He said
Don't you dare ask
Why I'm cursed to wear this face

by James Hetfield.
GREAT SONG!!!



Close up | Reviewer: Pedro Guillem | 6/10/07

Few folks like this great song, i belive it is one of the most powerful songs ever written by Metallica not only for the lyrics and the mix of voices, but the melody itself; while it delivers a nice amount of the unique "metal adrenaline". (If you ever felt your pulse raising during a guitar or drum solo, hehe you know what i´m talking about).

I was a werido kid in my early ages and the classic no-fear mind-enlighted pervert tenager later on. Even thou i never actually killed anybody, I guess part of my affinity to this song remains in the fact that social structures tend to condemn this behavior into some kind of dangerous disease (not knowing it is actually a rare gift), and the lyric does a nice job describing what the flesh-n-bone profound metal-maniac feels at some point in his early life... that is, an un explainable desire to just explode.
