​Hayride to Hell

This song is by Hoodoo Gurus and appears on the album Mars Needs Guitars (1985).

Charlie was a driver and he hardly spent a night at home
He never saw his family, trucking loads those long weeks on the road, oh
And Charlie would drive (and Charlie would drive)
For miles and miles (for miles and miles)
Alone, whoa

Charlie had a teenage daughter he thought of as a little girl
But one day he came home his little girl had grown-up news to tell, well
Oh, Daddy, she cried (oh, Daddy, she cried)
Oh, Daddy, I tried (oh, Daddy, I tried)
But on the hayride how I fell
That was a hayride bound for Hell

Now, Billy Jackson was the father but he wasn't man enough to own
And his daddy was the mayor who told Charlie
Don't you leave my Billy-boy alone?
Billy had to hide (Billy had to hide)
There was guilt inside (there was guilt inside)
And you canıt hide from yourself
That's just a hayride bound for Hell (Hell)

Hell

Charlie's daughter died whilst giving birth to Billy Jackson's child
And Billy Jackson ain't been seen around these parts for quite a while

And Charlie would drive (and Charlie would drive)
For miles and miles (for miles and miles)
And his tail lights say farewell
Just like a hayride bound for
And his tail lights, they say farewell
He's a hayride bound for Hell
Bound for Hell (Hell)
He's bound for Hell
