  • Song Lyrics:
    He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
    And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
    He had a hopped-up 'cicle that took off like a gun
    That fool was the terror of Highway 101

    Well, he never washed his face and he never combed his hair
    He had axle grease embedded underneath his fingernails
    On the muscle of his arm was a red tattoo
    A picture of a heart saying, "Mother, I love you"

    He had a pretty girlfriend by the name of Mary Lou
    But he treated her just like he treated all the rest
    And everybody pitied her and everybody knew
    He loved that doggone motorcycle best

    He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
    And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
    He had a hopped-up 'cicle that took off like a gun
    That fool was the terror of Highway 101

    Mary Lou, poor girl, she pleaded and she begged him not to leave
    She said, "I've got a feeling if you ride tonight, I'll grieve"
    But her tears were shed in vain and her every word was lost
    In the rumble of an engine and the smoke from his exhaust

    Then he took off like the Devil, there was fire in his eyes!!
    He said, "I'll go a thousand miles before the sun can rise."
    But he hit a screamin' diesel that was California-bound"
    And when they cleared the wreckage, all they found

    Was his black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
    And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
    But they couldn't find the 'cicle that took off like a gun
    And they never found the terror of High way 1 0 1
