Lyrics[]

I'm a charger that charges through the night

Like an orange bolt of lightning passing everything in sight

I'm the best pal the Duke boys ever had

I'm thunder on the highway looking bad, bad, bad


I'm a knight, like a kind in shining armor

With my polished body gleaming, I'm a fighter and a charmer

If trouble comes your way, just ask for me

My friends all know me as the General Lee


I'm the General Lee

A piston pumpin' steel belted cavalry

I'll never let you down when you're riding with me

Buckle up and I'll show you what I mean


Take a look back there

Sirens blowing, red lights flashing everywhere

We'll cross the field, and we'll be running free

They'll eat dust with compliments of me


The General Lee

I'm a hero and that's how I'll make you feel

When you're riding shotgunned with me, and the law is at your heels

I'm glory bound but when the chase is done

I'll take off through the mountains and have fun, fun, fun


I've got style tearing through the curves

Let my flag wave proudly to the people that I serve

I'm number one and I will always be

The pride of the South, they call the General Lee


I'm the General Lee

A piston pumpin' steel belted cavalry

I'll never let you down when you're riding with me

Buckle up and I'll show you what I mean


Take a look back there

Sirens blowing, red lights flashing everywhere

I'll jump that pond and we'll be running free

And they'll go swimming compliments of me

The General Lee


The General Lee
