Joe Walsh and Billy Gibbons - Life in the Fast Lane




Two of our favorite artists and guitarists, Joe Walsh and Billy Gibbons, join forces to create an absolutely awesome rendition of Eagles’ “Life In The Fast Lane” that will blow your top! As the former Eagle and southern rock king join together in this classic, you will not be able to help but smile.


Inspired by the fast-paced lifestyle of LA, “Life In The Fast Lane” is your typical “I got caught up in the moment” song that reveals the extent to which the artists get carried away with fame and fortune.



Lyrics


He was a hard-headed man

He was brutally handsome, and she was terminally pretty

She held him up, and he held her for ransom in the heart

of the cold, cold city

He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude

They said he was ruthless, they said he was crude

They had one thing in common, they were

good in bed

She’d say, ‘Faster, faster. The lights are turnin’ red.”

Life in the fast lane

Surely make you lose your mind, mm

Are you with me so far?

Eager for action and hot for the game

The coming attraction, the drop of a name

They knew all the right people, they took

all the right pills

They threw outrageous parties, they paid heavenly bills

There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face

She pretended not to notice, she was caught up

in the race


Out every evening, until it was light

He was too tired to make it, she was too tired

to fight about it


Life in the fast lane

Surely make you lose your mind

Life in the fast lane, everything all the time

Life in the fast lane, uh huh

Blowin’ and burnin’, blinded by thirst

They didn’t see the stop sign,

took a turn for the worse


She said, “Listen, baby. You can hear the engine

ring. We’ve been up and down this highway;

haven’t seen a goddam thing.”

He said, “Call the doctor. I think I’m gonna crash.”

“The doctor say he’s comin’, but you gotta pay him cash.”

They went rushin’ down that freeway,

messed around and got lost

They didn’t care they were just dyin’ to get off

And it was life in the fast lane

Life in the fast lane
