LyricsEdit

Riding down the highway - going to a show
Top in all the byways - playing rock 'n' roll
Getting robbed - getting stoned - getting beat up
Broken bones - getting had - getting took
I tell you folks - it's harder than it looks

It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you think it's easy doing one night stands
Try playing in a rock 'n' roll band
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll

Hotel - motel - makes you wanna cry
Lady do the hard sell - know the reason why
Getting old - getting grey - getting ripped off
Underpaid - getting sold - second hand
That's how it goes - playing in a band

It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you wanna be a star of stage 'n' screen
Look out - it's rough and mean
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll
