[Riff 1] x4

[Riff 2] x1

[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:

My uncle has a country place,
that no one knows about.
He says it used to be a farm
before the Motor Law.

And on Sundays, I elude the “Eyes”
and hop the turbine freight –
to far outside the wire
where my white-haired uncle waits.

[Riff 3] x2
[Riff 4] x1

[Riff 4] x2 w/ lyrics:

Jump to the ground as the turbo slows to cross the borderline.
Run like the wind as excitement shivers up and down my spine.

[Riff 5] x2 w/ lyrics:

Down in his barn, my uncle preserved for me an old machine – for 50 odd
years. To keep it as new has been his dearest dream.

x1

[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:

I strip away the old debris
that hides the shining car.
a brilliant red Barchetta from a
better vanished time.

Fire up the willing engine,
responding with a roar!
Tires spitting gravel I commit
my weekly crime.

Wind in my hair, shifting and drifting.

[Riff 7] x1 /w lyrics:

— adrenalin surge…..

[Riff 7] x1 w/ lyrics:

Well weathered leather, hot metal and oil, the scented country air.

[Riff 8] x1 w/ lyrics:

Sunlight on chrome, the blur of the landscape, every nerve aware!

[Riff 4] x1 (repeat first part 3 times)

[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:

Suddenly ahead of me,
across the mountain side,
a gleaming alloy air car shoots towards
me two lanes wide.

I spin around with shrieking tires
to run the deadly race;
go screaming through the valley as
another joins the chase.

[Riff 3] x2
[Riff 4] x1

[Riff 4] x2 w/ lyrics:

Drive like the wind, straining the limits of machine and man.
Laughing out loud with fear and hope, I’ve got a desperate plan.

[Riff 5] x2 w/ lyrics:

At the one lane bridge I leave the giants stranded at the riverside.
Race back to the farm to dream with my uncle at the fireside.
