He prays his eyes stay open on the long and lonesome road
He lives his life through daydreams of the girl he had known before
He laughs about his wasted life, turns off the radio
There's no use in being angry, so long as he makes it home

He sings, "If I, I could turn this around tonight
I'd drive, drive back to my old town life
And when I say that I miss you, I know it don't mean much
But I'll see you again, my Lorelei, I... I will. I will."

He pulls the brake of his big rig and gives his boss his last regards
He takes a Greyhound back to his hometown, to the steps of her old front yard
He's sent to Graveyard Blvd, where he finds her at the top of the hill
He mouths the words "Will you marry me?", her tombstone reads "I will."

He sings, "If I, I could've asked you out that night
I'd have led a different life, and maybe you would be my wife
But now I sit here missing you, and I know it don't mean much
But I'll see you again, my Lorelei, I... I will. I will. I will. I will."

He prays his eyes stay open on the long and lonesome road
(He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)
He lives his life through daydreams of the girl he had known before
(He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)
He laughs about his wasted life, turns off the radio
(He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)
There's no use in being angry, so long as he makes it home
(He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)

"I will. I will." (He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)
"I will. I will." (He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)
"I will. I will." (He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)
"I will. I will." (He ain't scared of death--he greets the end)
"I will." (He ain't scared of death.)
