Johnny works in a factory and Billy works downtown
Terry works in a rock 'n' roll band looking for that million-dollar sound
Me I don't do nothing much, I spend a lot of time alone
Some nights I go to the drive-in and some night I stay home

You see I followed that dream just like those guys do way up on the screen
With a built-up Challenger down route 9
Through the dead ends and all the bad scenes
And when the promise was broken I cashed in a few of my old dreams

You see I built that Challenger by myself
But I needed money and so I sold it
And I lived a secret I should have kept to myself
But I got drunk one night and I told it
All my life I fought that fight
The one that I can't ever win
And everyday it just gets harder to live
The dreams I'm believing in

Thunder Road
I stay up every morning until it turns light
Thunder Road
There's something dying on the Highway tonight

Well now I won big once and I hit the coast
Oh but somehow I paid the big cost
Inside I felt like I was carrying the broken spirits
Of all the other ones who lost

When the promise is broken you go on livin'
But it takes something from down in your soul
Like when the truth is spoken
And it don't make no difference
Something in your heart turns cold

You see I followed that dream, me and some guys
Through the dead ends and all the two-bit bars
When the promise was broken
I was drunk and far away from home
Sleeping with a stranger in the back seat of a borrowed car

Thunder Road
Here's one for the lost lovers and all the fixed games
Thunder Road
Here's one for the tyres rushin' by in the rain
Thunder Road
I remember when me and Billy we'd always say
Thunder Road
We were gonna take it all
And throw it all
