Hell Bent For Leather

Album: Hell Bent For Leather (1978)
  • Seek him here, seek him on the highway
    Never knowing when he'll appear
    All await, engine's ticking over
    Hear the roar as they sense the fear

    Wheels,
    A glint of steel and a flash of light
    Screams,
    From a streak of fire as he strikes

    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather

    Black as night, faster than a shadow
    Crimson flare from a raging sun
    An exhibition, of sheer precision
    Yet no one knows from where he comes

    Fools
    Self destruct cannot take that crown
    Dreams
    Crash one by one to the ground

    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather

    There's many who tried to prove that they're faster
    But they didn't last and they died as they tried

    There's many who tried to prove that they're faster
    But they didn't last and they died as they tried

    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather
    Hell bent, hell bent for leather Writer/s: GLENN RAYMOND TIPTON
