Wings for Wheels (early version of Thunder Road) The screen door slams, Angelinas dress waves Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays Roy Orbison singing for the lonely Thats me and I want you only Dont turn me home again I just cant face myself alone in that mirror again tonight Dont run back inside, baby you know just what Im here for So youre scared and youre thinking That maybe you aint that young anymore Show a little faith theres magic in the night You aint a beauty but hey youre alright And thats alright with meThis 4/4 shes gonna overheat Make up your mind girl I gotta get her back out on the street I know youre lonely like me so baby dont try and fake it Im no prince and I cant lay the stars at your feet But I got this old car and shes pretty tough to beat Theres plenty of room in my front seat, baby if you wanna take it Oh roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair Its like the rushing touch, the dirty wings them highway Angels wear Well tonight were gonna nd out how it feels Im gonna trade in your wings - for wheels Climb in back, heavens waiting down on the tracksAh, mama, come take my hand Were gonna ride all the way to the promised land Oh Im gonna dance all the way, dance all the way Well I dont know but baby Ive been told Theres something waiting for us, down that dirty road Oh take a chance, take a chance, take a chance 9. Well now I bought this guitar and I learned how to make it talk I got my car parked out back if youre ready to take that long walk From your front porch to my front seat Well I think we could take it all babe, just you and me Climb in back baby, the rides for free Oh come take my hand, were gonna ride all the way to the promised land Well dance all the way Oh baby I dont know but Ive been told Theres something waiting for us, down that dirty road If we take our chance, take our chance Now the seasons over and I feel it getting cold I wish I could take you to some sandy beach where wed never grow old Ah but baby you know thats just jive But tonights bustin open and Im alive Oh do what you can to make me feel like a manBut this 4/4/2s gonna overheat Make up your mind girl, I gotta get her back out on the street I know youre lonely like me, oh so dont fake it And maybe I cant lay the stars at your feet But I got this old car and shes pretty tough to beat Theres plenty of room in my front seat Oh if you think you can make it, climb in This is town full of losers and baby I was born to win. 10. Thunder Road (Early acoustic version) The screen door slams, Chrissy's dress sways. Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays. Roy Orbison's singin' for the lonely, hey that's me babe, and I want you only. Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again. Don't run back inside, baby you know just what I'm here for So you're scared and you're thinkin' that maybe we ain't that young anymore There's magic in the night, You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright. And that's alright with me.You can hide 'neath your covers, and study your pain, Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain, Waste your summer prayin' in vain, for a savior to rise from these streets. Well I'm no hero, that's understood. All the redemption I can offer, babe, is beneath this old hood. With one last chance to make it good somehow. Hey, what else can you do now.Except roll down the window and let the wind roll back your hair The night's bustin' open and these two lanes will take us anywhere We got one last chance to make it real, to trade in these wings for some wheels. Climb in back, it's waitin' down on the track. 11. Well, now try hard Chrissy to understand, I'm ridin' out tonight to case the promised land, Babe, if you're born with nothin', hey, it's your only chance. Well it's lyin' out there, like a killer in the sun Yeah, I know it's late, but we can make it if we run. Oh, I wish you could come. Leave what you've lost, leave what's grown old, On Thunder Road.Well, I got this guitar, and I learned how to make it talk my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk From your front porch to my front seat, Hey, the door's open, but the ride, it ain't free.Well, there were ghosts in the eyes of the boys that you sent away They haunt this dirty beach road, in the skeleton remains of burned out Chevrolets. They scream to you at night from the street, your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet. And in the lonely cool before dawn, from your room you hear their engines roar on, but when you get to their porch their gone, lost in the wind. So, Chrissy climb in, It's a town full of losers, and I'm pullin' outta here to win 12. Thunder Road (album version) The screen door slams, Marys dress sways Like a vision she dances across the porch, as the radio plays Roy Orbison singing for the lonely Hey thats me and I want you only Dont turn me home again, I just cant face myself alone again Dont run back inside, darling you know just what Im here for So youre scared and youre thinking That maybe we aint that young anymore Show a little faith, theres magic in the night You aint a beauty, but hey youre alright Oh and thats alright with meYou can hide neath your covers and study your pain Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain Waste your summer praying in vain For a saviour to rise from these streets Well now Im no hero, thats understood All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood With a chance to make it good somehow Hey what else can we do now? Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair Well the nights busting open This two lanes will take us anywhere We got one last chance to make it real To trade in these wings on some wheels Climb in back: Heavens waiting on down the tracks 13. Oh-oh come take my hand Riding out tonight to case the promised land Oh-oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, Lying out there like a killer in the sun Hey I know its late we can make it if we run Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold, Thunder RoadWell I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk And my cars out back if youre ready to take that long walk From your front porch to my front seat The doors open but the ride it aint free And I know youre lonely and theres words that I aint spoken But tonight well be free, all the promisesll be brokenThere were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away They haunt this dusty beach road In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets They scream your name at night in the street Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet And in the lonely cool before dawn you hear their engines roaring on But when you get to the porch theyre gone On the wind, so Mary climb in Its a town full of losers and Im pulling out of here to win. 14. (9/19/1978 Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ)quot;It was this Robert Mitchum movie, it was about these moonshine runners down south. I never saw the movie, I only saw the poster in the lobby in the theater, and I took the title and I wrote this song. But I didn't think that there was ever a place that was like what I wrote in the song, I didn't know if there was or not. And we were out in the desert over the summertime, driving to Nevada, and we came upon this house on the side of the road. It had a big picture of Geronimo out front, said quot;landlordquot; over the top, and had a big sign that said quot;This is the land of peace, love, justice and no mercyquot;. And it pointed down this little dirt road that said Thunder Road.This is for Mattie.quot; 15. Geronimo (1829-1909 ) 16. honeypie.org music543.com
