The moonshine thread brought this to mind for obvious reasons. Does anyone else play this wonderfull song written, believe it or not, by Robert Mitchum? Mike Bennett

Hi Mike,

You bet. I have this on an LP collection of "road" songs I got in the 60s. The collection includes songs like "Black Leather Jacket", "Cheater Slicks"; "Chicken"; "Little Deuce Coupe", etc. I finally copied it onto an audio cassette with other songs of the 50s and 60s so I could play it while driving in the car. I can't imagine listening to "Thunder Road" by anyone other than Robert Mitchum.

I can't remember the words, except for the chorus. Have been trying to retrieve it from the memory banks for I'd say about a decade... but it's never at the top of the list, just a passing fancy.... I found a friend who could write out the words to "Black Denim Trousers," which is not nearly as classy a song but is probably the reason why I started wishing I could remember Thunder Road.

Glad you mentioned it. I think I saw the movie, but my life is one big Senior Moment these days.

Lyrics to Ballad of Thunder Road in the DT.
The copyright is Robert Mitchum & Don Raye. I used to love this song when I was a kid.

My favorite Thunder Road is the Bruce Springsteen song.

Compare Steve Earle's "Copperhead Road." It's like the next installment - adding on a generation.

Didn't realize Robert Mitchum wrote it; how interesting. It is a good song. How could there be a much better line than "When his engine roared they called that highway Thunder Road," or, "The Devil took the moonshine and the mountain boy that day. ..."?

A great song, I agree; but forget about the movie. I rented it a few months ago just to get the lyrics and see some exiting moonshine footage. Boy what a disapointment the movie was. Very slow and sappy and they never played the song as it was sung on the radio. Only a slow shortened alternative version.
