Renegade Radio-XERF

Verse 1

It's 3 in the mornin', I'm barely awake
Headed south out of San Anton'
Out in the desert the wind is blowin'
On highway 90 to Mexico

Verse 2

There's a AM radio in my ol' Lincoln
With a glowin' dial like a mystic eye
If I get lucky it'll be there waitin'
XERF comin' outa the sky

Pre Chorus

Those years out on the highway before the interstates
Tourist reptile houses, fortune tellers temptin' fate
Burma Shave signs and little bungalow motels
And a radio station right across the border, Ciudad Acuna, Mexico

Chorus

It was Renegade Radio
Renegade Radio, remember it well
It was Renegade Radio
Renegade Radio, remember it well
Renegade Radio

Verse 3

With a history just made for movies
Truth or legend, what's your guess
Wolfman Jack and Federales
ZZ Top and all the rest

Pre Chorus
Chorus
Instrumental


Bridge

The radio was fadin' as it started gettin' light
But, I'll always carry with me the memory of that night
If you drive all night in Texas, Son, I'm here to tell ya'
'Bout an outlaw station right across the border
A Renegade Radio that cast a spell...

Outro;

It was Renegade Radio
Renegade Radio, remember it well
It was Renegade Radio
Renegade Radio, remember it well
It was Renegade Radio
Renegade Radio, remember it well
It was Renegade Radio
Renegade Radio, remember it well
Renegade Radio.....
Yeah...
