Aaron Pritchett - Hell Bent For Buffalo Lyrics

I'm on the ninety heading North, its iced up pretty bad
That wind off the lake makes it hard to stay on track
There's a pretty little thing, brown hair and green eyes
Right now she's the number one thing on my mind

If I can stay on this highway and get there alive
She says that shell make it worth my drive
She's waiting for me on the other side of all of this snow

Why else would I be hell bent for Buffalo?

There's a Semi in the ditch, there's flashin' lights ahead
But I'm thinkin' about a fireplace and a nice warm bed
My coffees way past cold, all my cigarettes are gone
My knuckles cold and white from how tight I'm holdin' on

If I can stay on this highway and get here alive
She says that shell make it worth my drive
She's waiting for me on the other side of all of this snow
Why else would I be hell bent for Buffalo?

I could turn this rig around, its still like summer in the South
But I can see her in my mind as I throw this hammer down

If I can stay on this highway and get here alive
She says that shell make it worth my drive
She's waiting for me on the other side of all of this snow
Why else would I be hell bent for Buffalo

  5. Elizabeth

  7. missks5n

    Grace B

    missks5n I was her best friend in grade 1 before she moved


    ♡ed it

  9. Greg

    Yes coming out of Erie it is the 90 and it does run north but it's south of Buffalo, not Syracuse. And if you listen to the first verse, he talks about the wind off the lake and the winds off Lake Erie are hell in the winter.

  10. TheSmokinApples

    and thank you :)

  11. TheSmokinApples

    It is Syracuse.

  12. Tgunderson79

    I like the 359 myself. but I'm running a Kay-dub 660 right now

  13. Tgunderson79

    Coming out of Erie PA, 90 east turns "North" into NY south of Saracuse (if memory serves) before turning into the NY Thru Way Toll Road

  14. Devan MacDonnell

    I like his 'Hold my beer'.

  15. Allan Rondeau

    I seen him live in Smithers BC just a small town but he came there, now a life long fan.

  16. HD Productions

    I love this song :)

  17. TheSmokinApples

    i90 goes east and west. i81 goes north in ny

  18. TaCkLeZdEm


    Damn hypocrites.

  19. jlwow21

    Your all dumbasses. There is a route 90 in buffalo wyoming and it runs north and south. Have a good day..

  20. Danny Pods

    ok just to clear things up..the 90 might "technically" run E&W BUT if your heading towards Buffalo from OH or PA it runs primarily north until beyond Buffalo. TRUST ME I drive it 5 days a week from south of Buffalo to Buffalo. and to the people analyzing the fact that he's Canadian what is he doing coming from the south heading to Buffalo...seriously? its a song..not every song by every musician is legitimately about their own personal lives. this one obviously isn't, but it is a fantastic song!

  21. Breigh Butchart

    OMG.. Finally a song about a girl with GREEN eyes! <3

  22. northerncustomsracin

    that truck <3

  23. stephen rankin

    My dad has all that.. what your saying is so stereotypic... A truck driver will make as much money as he wants too. but he has to work for it.

  24. danebrewer10

    Peter built it.....

  25. Roniery Bernardes Bernardes

    speaking very good music of Brazil

  26. Ryan McNamara

    Isn't he saying he's hell bent to get to Buffalo in order to cross the border and get home? He's a Canadian artist.

  27. mark cargill

  28. Joe Dirte

  31. AkimboJive

  32. typhoon5000

  35. ken hatfield

  36. ken hatfield

  41. Bryan.B

  42. brz1968

    @krtsr1 Well, not everybody can be a "super-trucker" like you

  43. Garilynn Vickers-Fletcher

    Funny i just came from Bufflo, and even if it primarily run North and South out of Erie to Bufflo it's not listed as so! So it kinda makes me think the songs stupid! lol

  44. steve2275

    for a minute i thought this was christian kane

  45. George Tweedie

    @OriginalBurton true, 90 does run east/west, but if he's coming from the ohio area, 90 does run diagonal for a while from ohio to buffalo...actually, in ny it does go primarily south from buffalo.

  46. Matthndrx1

    lose the earnings

  47. chevfan08

    can't beat a peterbilt but i still love my MACK!

  48. Jer Bochie

    This guy came up to a small town in northern BC Canada called Mackenzie BC.We had a bad wind storm with hurricane force winds upwards of 120km/h and he had to cancel out on Nov 17.He arrived here on Dec 8th/2010. He sang this song in honor of a lady who was killed during my birthday night of Nov16 during the start of the bad storm. When he arrived on Dec 8th it was snowing and cold and i thought it was ironic that he was singing this song......GOD BLESS Arron Pritchett!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Jim P

  63. jlwow21

    @sonic42797 Buffalo Wyoming you idiot. Dont try to be a know it all, and green eyed girl is a term every song writer uses. Please refrain from writing anymore dumbass comments. thanks

  64. Jer Bochie

    he is drivin the best rig out there....PETERBILT

  65. Jer Bochie

    Hell bound for Mackenzie, BC, Canada

  66. CosmicJerry

    @sonic42797 ok this id just a comment on the green eyes part
    so it does not matter what color the parents eyes are eye color is based of something completely different.

  67. sonic42797

    -He's on the 90 heading north- 90 actually runs east and west, the 87 runs north
    -90 OR 87, there's no mountains that look like that anywhere in the area.
    -Neither Aaron Pritchett (blue) or his "wife" seem to have green eyes. Where did the daughters green eyes come from?

    Semantics out of the way, resumption of listening to an awesome country song may resume :)

  68. Audra K

    Aaron is soooo hot. His eyes make me melt.

  69. Blakey7612

    Great lookin' Petercar.

  70. VickieMarie39

    What a great song who is the little girl at the end. you can tell aaron is good with kids.

  71. UntouchedWagons

    If the road is iced up pretty bad how come there's no snow on the road (or anywhere)?

  72. Faith Gray

    @Night7Star ggrrr. boy is this edmonton alberta?!

  73. Chad Bonvie

    Makes me think when I did trucking with a dog in the cab. Can use any kind of company when your on the road for days

  74. echo3rhythm

  76. Celine Desjardins

  77. besskelly123

    but i so predicted the end :)

  78. Stavros

    @echo3rhythm Why quebec sucks???

  79. Keith Forrest

    who cares if there is snow or not listen to the song and enjoy it

  80. Cory Wyatt

    Ok love the song, but really you can't do a video FOR a sing about ice and snow and not have ice and snow.

    Just some minor corrections I made for ya there..... smart one....

  81. cliffweatherall

    @Derek9308 Hey smart one, look on the ground in the trailer scene, there is snow!

    Just some minor corrections I made for ya there..... smart one....

  82. cliffweatherall

    @countrymusicgtavboy2 ohhh did you notice that when he gets to buffalo ... no snow at his house... really i love this song, but it would be a better video if instead of only half following the story with the coffee and smokes if there was snow and a semi in the ditch it looked winter not late spring... which is my point.

  83. cliffweatherall

    @countrymusicgtavboy2 ohh, forgive i didnt know there was more snow in the south then in the north. watched it again ... nope still not enough snow for how he discribes it, especially heading to buffalo. way more then that dust you see on the side.... '

  84. cliffweatherall

    ok love the song... but really you cant do a video about a song about ice and snow and not have ice and snow

  85. john sipe
