Glory Road


I leave my baby in a sweet, blue dream
Lying in our bed like a beauty queen
There’s pretty things living in the world, but it’s too damn cold
Out to the engine that I’ll be riding
Jet black steel in the moonlight shining
My 5.0 is gonna get him down at Glory Road

Glory Road, Glory Road
Me and my pony riding to Glory Road
Glory Road, Glory Road
Terror running high riding down to Glory Road

Gasoline burnin’, got to find him soon
The renegade demon by a blood, red moon
He’s moving through the streets like a viper I am told
An innocent target that he’ll be trying
Another God waiting to reap the dying
5.0 is gonna get him down at Glory Road

Glory Road, Glory Road
Me and my pony riding to Glory Road
Glory Road, Glory Road
Terror running high riding down to Glory Road

SOLO

I can remember back to better days
The infidel was a world away
Now a nation has grown too great, the villain too bold
.45’s loaded, I’m ready to rock
Lead goin’ deep into his cold, hard heart
5.0 is gonna get him down at Glory Road

Glory Road, Glory Road
Me and my pony riding to Glory Road
Glory Road, Glory Road
Terror running high riding down to Glory Road
Shut him up, shut him down, down, down Glory Road

“Take that terrorist down, dude. ‘Sin City’ meets ‘Taxi Driver’ in a Southern Rock-style blown to bits by The Eagles. Me and the band (the best session guys in Toronto) knocked off this tune in one take – really, the solos at the end and everything.”
