"Thunder Road" as written by and Glenn Raymond/halford Tipton....
Red light, green light
I'm coming home tonight
Burning the freeway
Out of control

Red light, dead lines
We streak from town to town
I's too much, I need your touch
I've been away too long

Out again upon the thunder road
Driving back to you where I belong
I've had enough
Dreams can wait
I'm coming home

Spotlights, wild nights
I know it wrong from right
Places, the faces
All look the same

Hot wired, so tired
Living from song to song
The madness, the badness
It's just a game

Watch the sunrise
From coast to coast
That's when I need your loving
Oh! That's when I need it most
Can't explain, it's something in the blood
Wouldn't change it even if I could

    My OpinionI always thought of this song as a sequel to Desert Plains. They both identify surroundings and they also both have a similar lyric "I'm coming home tonight" and "I heed your call I'm coming back".

    General CommentIts about a man who left his wife (or husband) to pursuit a dream, maybe a music career, but he later really miss that person, and decide to have a break on this journey and go home.
