Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
Although written for the TV program Boon, the song was about Jim's father who was a firefighter and a huge fan of The Lone Ranger. "Hi Ho Silver" was what The Lone Ranger would say to his horse.
The main character in Boon was a firefighter, which appealed to Diamond. (thanks, Capone - Glasgow, United Kingdom)
