Hoyt Axton wrote and recorded "Flash of Fire" on his album "Fearless", released in 1976. Sorry, don't know the record label.

The rusted gears of memory have begun to turn and I've got at least some of the lyrics:

Flash of Fire - Hoyt Axton

I thought you were a friend of mine I thought you were my buddy, But I found out a short while ago That your thoughts are dark and muddy

You scare me half to death my friend With the things you say and do

So I'm goin t'heaven in a flash of fire With or without you, Yea, goin t'heaven in a flash of fire With or without you.

For Hoyt fans, there's a true fanatic who's recently launched an Axton-only web page titled "Hoy Axton Explodes" I came across it by way of an Alta Vista seach by keying in his first and last name. The web- meister is working on transcriptions of lyrics, a 20+ tune songbook, an exhaustive discography, etc. Well worth a look!

For all of you Hoyt Axton fans out there, the site that Mountain Dog refers to is at www.eyekon.com/hoytaxton/index.html. He's not kidding. Even if you know have all of Hoyt's albums but two and even if you didn't wish him Happy Birthday on 3/25 and even if you didn't follow him all over So Cal in the early 60's to try to learn to play Lightin' Bar Blues and even if -- the web site is something to behold from a purist's point of view. Stone is truly a fanatic and I rank somewhere in the top ten or fifteen.

Try it , you'll like it. The album is on A & M records.

Don't know what you did but I just connected using the exact address URL I typed previously. The only thing I can see is that I didn't type the http:// that precedes. Here is what shows on my location bar right now

http://www.eyekon.com/hoytaxton/index.html

Try once more. If you have no luck, try e-mailing the web meister at stone@eyekon.com and ask for help. Be sure to tell him from whom you heard about his site!! Good Luck !! It really is a gas for old Hoyt-ers !!

Here's most of it:

Flash of Fire – Hoyt Axton

I thought you were a friend of mine, I thought you were my buddy
But I found out a short while ago your thoughts were dark and muddy.
It scares me half to death, my friend, with the things you say and do.
So I'm goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you.

Easy come, easy go, some call me easy money
Sometimes life is full of laughs, and sometimes it ain't funny.
????????
So I'm goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you.

Some can dance and some can sing, and some can play the fiddle.
I've been left and I've been right, and I've been down the middle.
You may think that I'm a fool, and sometimes that is true
But I'll be goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you.

Flash of Fire
Hoyt Axton 1976

I thought you were a friend of mine; I thought you were my buddy
But I found out a short while ago your thoughts were dark and muddy
You scare me half to death, my friend, with the things you say and do
So I'm goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you
Hey, goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you

Easy come and easy go; some call me Easy Money
And sometimes life is full of laughs, and sometimes it ain't funny
You may think that I'm a fool and sometimes that is true
But I'm goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you
Hey, goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you

Some can dance and some can sing and some can play the fiddle
I've been right and I've been left and I've been down the middle.
You don't have to see my side or share my point of view
`Cause I'm goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you
Hey, goin' to heaven in a flash of fire, with or without you

(repeat first verse)

Two of my best friends were killed by lightning while fishing and one of them left
Hoyt Axton's cassette tape at my house. I never heard this song until I played the
tape at a private wake for them. We all had goose bumps.
