I'm a charger that charges through the night
Like an orange bolt of lightning passing everything in sight
I'm the best pal that you boys ever had
I'm thunder on the highway lookin' bad, bad, bad

I'm a knight, like the kind in shining armor
With my polished body gleaming, I'm a fighter and a charmer
If trouble comes your way just ask for me
My friends all know me as the General Lee

I'm the General Lee
A pistol pumpin', steel belted cavalry
I'll never let you down when you're riding with me
Buckle up and I'll show you what I mean

Take a look back there
Sirens blownin', red lights flashin' everywhere
We'll cross the fields and we'll be running free
They'll eat dust compliments of me, the General Lee

I'm a hero and that's how I'll make you feel
When you're riding shotgun with me and the law is at your heels
I'm glory bound, but when the chase is done
I'll take off through the mountains and have fun, fun, fun

I've got style, tearing through the curves
Let my flag wave proudly to the people that I serve
I'm number one, and I will always be
The pride of the South they call the General Lee

I'm the General Lee
A pistol pumpin', steel belted cavalry
I'll never let you down when you're riding with me
Buckle up and I'll show you what I mean

Take a look back there
Sirens blownin', red lights flashin' everywhere
I'll jump that pond and we'll be running free
And they'll go swimmin', compliments of me

The General Lee
The General Lee
General Lee
