Song progression:

[Intro] x5
[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.

[Intro] 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.

  (Bend this note into infinity, mix with heavy flange)

[Riff 6] x2

[Riff 6] x3 /w lyrics:

        Wind in my hair, shifting and drifting.
        -- mechanical music,

[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.

[Riff 5] x1

[Intro] x7
[Riff 1] x4
