  • It was back in the summer of '83
    There's a reason I remember it well
    I was slipping and sliding, drinkin' and drivin'
    Bringin' me closer to Hell

    And the Devil sat in the passenger's side
    Of Delorean's automobile
    He said, "Hey Frehley, Frehley let's not be silly
    There's a life out there to steal"

    Rock soldiers come
    And rock soldiers go
    And some hear the drum
    And some never know

    Rock soldiers! How do we know?
    Ace is back and he told you so

    With a trooper in the mirror
    And Satan on my right
    We went the wrong way down a one way road
    Hitting everything in sight

    I cried "I am invincible"
    Said I was high above the law
    But my only high was just a lie
    And now I'm glad I saw

    Rock soldiers come
    And rock soldiers go
    And some hear the drum
    And some never know

    Rock soldiers! How do we know?
    Ace is back and he told you so

    Calling rock soldiers
    You! Rock soldiers
    Calling rock soldiers
    Hard rock soldiers

    Friends say they'll stay with you
    Right through that danger zone
    But the closer you get to that fiery hole
    You'll have to make it alone

    When I think of how my life was spared
    From that near fatal wreck
    If the Devil wants to play his card game now
    He's gonna play without an Ace in his deck

    Rock soldiers come
    And rock soldiers go
    And some hear the drum
    And some never know

    Rock soldiers! How do we know?
    Rock soldiers come
    And rock soldiers go
    And some hear the drum
    And some never know, hey! (Rock soldiers) Writer/s: ACE FREHLEY, CHIP TAYLOR
