It's a late, cool, autumn evening
And the sunset melts into night
With a V-twin throbbing beneath me
And my head is spinning alright

Well, Ritchie and me, we started as kids
In a rock 'n' roll band, on the street where we lived
It's a long hard ride till the morning
As the trees and wind start to sing

Chains around your heart that bind
Break away and leave them behind

Well, once there was a time in this rock 'n' roll dream
This here town would rip apart at the seams
Now, I'm out of money and Billy's out of work
Eddie's pushin' pencils for the county clerk

Everybody's job is getting pushed out of town
Life is just knockin' 'em down, down
Boyhood dreams are run into the ground
Long, dark shadows hang over this town

Cast away the chains that bleed
Break away and leave you free

Take my hand, come leave with me
As nighttime fades away
We'll ride the hills and desert sand
Cross the barren land

All the families have all gone
Their jobs went before them, I'm sure
They knocked down the corner barber shop
Put up a super, triple level, parking lot

There once was a time you could vote for a man
Who wouldn't try and stick a gun in your hands
So, cut out all your talkin'
And make love with me through the night

Chains around your heart that bind
Break away and leave them behind
Just leave them behind
Just leave them behind
