Rough and ready rider in a supersonic sound machine
Rock and roll survivor, chrome pipes between your knees
Runnin' all the red lights, ridin' the white lines
Your gonna make a dead stop but you just can't see the signs

Ohh, you'll never win the race but you can't give up the chase
Death alley driver, livin' at high speed, death alley driver, yeah
Death alley driver, who knows what you need, death alley driver

One hundred twenty-five smokin' on the turns
Always on the hit and run but you never learn
Runnin' from the man and you're runnin' from yourself
Another dirty angel headin' straight to hell

Oh, you'll never win the race but you won't give up the chase
Death alley driver, life in overdrive, death alley driver, yeah
Death alley driver, ride to stay alive, death alley driver, let's go

Red lights in the mirror, danger on the band
Got to take a detour 'cause a road block's up ahead
He takes you on a corner with a wave of his hand
Death is in the back seat of a big old black sedan

Oh, you'll never win the race as you turn and see his face
Death alley driver, movin' for the kill, death alley driver, yeah
Death alley driver, time is standin' still, death alley driver

Always on the run cause you're a death alley driver
Love the way it feels, death alley driver, yeah
Death alley driver, hell on wheels, death alley driver, ohh
