Blood Rag

Blood Rag is a Porno For Pyros song that was originally known as a Jane’s Addiction song titled Bloody Rag. The song was written by Steve Perkins and Perry Farrell in late 1988 or early 1989. Steve explained that the songs is based on a drum beat he created as a kid that evolved into a jam Steve and Perry did during sound checks. It was performed live in early to mid 1989 by Jane’s Addiction as a jam during the song Pigs In Zen. It was later recorded and released on Porno For Pyros’ debut album.

Lyrics

Somebody handed me a bloody rag
Oh that rag got thick and red
Yeah! Oh! Yeah! (Yeah!) Oh (Oh)! And I wish and I hope
And I hope and I pray
But oh!
No way
No way
No way
No way

So how many times can you walk away?
How many times, he did it again?
Yeah! Oh! Yeah! Oh! I wished and I hoped
And I hoped and prayed
But oh!
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
No way
