Rory Gallagher

Defender - 1987

Soft-soaped on the road to Hell.
So many times I've tripped and fell.
No chances left.
The sky is falling down on me.


One step from the demons' fire.
Can't stop the train, and flames get higher.
Too late to save me.
The wall's coming down on me.


Broken wishes and broken dreams.
Close to the edge, I cut it lean.
No Regrets, 
The flame's getting higher on me.


Push the tempo, push the time.
No excuses, not this time.
No way out.
The ground's opening up on me.

Yeah...oh yeah...

Can you feel the heat?
Coming from the street.
Pouring down on me...yeah..

They tried to keep me on a long thin chain,
Thanks, but no thanks just the same.
You saw it coming,
The devil's got the jump on me.


Lost soul on the road to Hell.
Wind up the motor and ring the bell.
No stopping now,
The pain's coming down on me.


Straight time on the road to Hell.
No mercy time at the wishing well.
No turning back,
The Angels gonna cry on me.
