Long Hard Ride


Verse 1

There's a storm a brewin' on the mountain top and I can hear the howlin' of the hounds
I see the lightnin' flashing in the dark of night as the horses run to ground
And I can tell it's gonna take me for a long hard ride

Chorus

Like a blind man driving down a highway, tempting fate with the devil walkin' by his side
I feel the battle raging in the darkness, I'm gonna send that devil on a long hard ride

Verse 2

There's a woman livin' on the river bank and she can burn a man's soul alive
She's got the wild black hair hanging down her back, keeps a pistol at her side
And I can tell she's gonna take me for a long hard ride

Chorus

Like a blind man driving down a highway, tempting fate with the devil walkin' by his side
I feel the battle raging in the darkness, I'm gonna send that devil on a long hard ride

Bridge: Instrumental

Verse 3

I'm a lonely cowhand riding through the night, tryin' to keep his cattle alive
But the wolves are hungry, pacin' 'long the fence lookin' for a break in the line
And I can tell they're gonna take me on a long hard ride

Chorus

Like a blind man driving down a highway, tempting fate with the devil walkin' by his side
I feel the battle raging in the darkness, I'm gonna send that devil on a long hard ride

Chorus: Repeat
