Lucinda Williams - It's A Long Way To The Top Lyrics




Ridin' down the highway
Goin' to a show
Stop in all the by-ways
Playin' rock 'n' roll
Gettin' robbed
Gettin' stoned
Gettin' beat up
Broken boned
Gettin' had
Gettin' 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
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you think it's easy doin' one night stands
Try playin' in a rock roll band
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll

Hotel, motel
Make you wanna cry
Lady do the hard sell
Know the reason why
Gettin' old
Gettin' grey
Gettin' ripped off
Under-paid
Gettin' sold
Second hand
That's how it goes
Playin' in a band

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

Lucinda Williams It's A Long Way To The Top Comments
  1. city zen

    That's why a lotta people drop out of music.

  2. oldrustycars

    She would have done a better job than Axl filling in for Brian Johnson.

  3. Richard Shell

    pathetic cover.. good guitar..

  4. Obi Won

    My Sunday Prophet

  5. Dean Twelve

    This is a Great Homage..

  6. jen8rve

    Totally killing it- dynamite, guitar and singers outrageous-dirty, dirty guitar

  7. Liviu Stefanache

    👌👌👌

  8. Scott Lindstrom

    I love Lucinda she rocks

  9. Rolando Medina

    nice version.

  10. Ryan Connell 5150

    This is complete and utter garbage.

    AT - Burleism

    /\ clueless.............

    Patrick Barkwell

    This fucking rocks.....unless you have no soul......utterly speaking that is.

    Johnr Roberts

    This song doesn't suit Lucinda's voice. To listen to her in her element, listen to 'Pineola' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_c8CYRK6lAs

  11. Cam M.

    Lucinda is a treasure. God knows she loves her craft and is has the tenacity to finally getting the recognition she deserves. She deserves every good thing that comes her way.

  12. bigfunkytx

    great song.

  13. mnesmith1962

    She is a SUPERSTAR

  14. peter graham

    Yeah.. She's got the vibe even more than Bon Scott had

    AT - Burleism

    She's got vibe .......... and respect. Bon Scott was the guy who smashed Disco with Acca Dacca Rock-n Roll. Evryones has an opininion but that doesn't mean they know what they are talking about. Bon Scott in his time was the greatest Rocker on the Planet and no debate can counter that fact

  15. Brandwhack

    Just do not know why or how this woman is not a SUPER DUPER STAR! Love her.

  16. Vanessa Cassidy

    Gettin old, gettin gray, gettin ripped off!
