  • Where were you in '79 when the dam began to burst
    Did you check us out down at the local show
    Were you wearing denim, wearing leather
    Did you run down to the front
    Did you queue for your ticket through the ice and snow

    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free
    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free

    Did you read the music paper from the back and to the front
    Did you find out where to see your favorite band
    Did you listen to the radio every Friday night
    Did hang around your local record store

    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free
    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free

    Do you dream of playing guitar or smashing up the drums
    Maybe you can learn to play the bass
    You can always be a singer like me and front the band
    When on the stage we wait at your command

    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free
    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free

    It was you - that set the spirit free
    It was you - that put us here today
    It was you - that filled the concert halls
    It was you - that set the spirit free

    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free
    Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free Writer/s: GRAHAM OLIVER, PAUL QUINN, PETER FRANCIS GILL, PETERY ROONEY BYFORD, STEPHEN DAWSON
