Blackfoot Lyrics


Blackfoot, named for lead singer/ guitarist Ricky
Medlocke's Native American heritage, began their career
with a southern-rock style like that of contemporary Lynyrd
Skynyrd. After releasing a few albums in this style, the
band was signed to Atco in 1979 and began to sharpen their
style. They adopted a heavier rock sound and released
Strikes, which became a hit. The album gave the band two
hit singles: 'Train, Train" and "Highway Song". The success
was followed up with two more acclaimed albums, Tomcattin'
and Marauder.

    ------ About the song Highway Song performed by Blackfoot

This is to me the best song ever coming from a Southern Rock band. Blackfoot were always very different to their fellow Southern rockers. They had a harder edge, and in Medlocke an amazing singer. "Highway Song" is a song I will play till the day I die.

This song will NEVER be a "has been"...... | Reviewer: BamaViK
    ------ About the song Highway Song performed by Blackfoot

I love this song as much each time I listen to it as I did the first time that I ever heard it. Actually have it loaded to my MP3 player a couple of times just so that I don't have to go back & find it.

Reminds me of a time when life was more simple & sweet.....

Loved this song since I first heard it in '70's | Reviewer: Ray R.
    ------ About the song Highway Song performed by Blackfoot

The slow methodical parts call to mind the mundane repetitive sometimes painfulness of life. The quick frantic parts, along with the lyrics, point to the human search for love and beauty,... for God! Awesome.

Tribute to Ronny | Reviewer: Jame
    ------ About the song Highway Song performed by Blackfoot

Highway is a one of the best. I saw Blackfoot and Rickey in Finland at summer 1985 and changed a few words with him. He sang Highway song at encore for memory of Ronny van Zant. It was so wonderful. RIP all the southern guys ans rockers.

Jame from Finland

Better than Free Bird | Reviewer: Whipping Post
    ------ About the song Highway Song performed by Blackfoot

When Highway Song came out, people said this was Blackfoot and Rickey Medlocke's attempt to keep up with Skynyrd (where Rickey had started) and come up with a rock "anthem." Well, he did, and I think it pounds Free Bird into dust. It's ironic, then, that Rickey has been back with Skynyrd for nearly 10 years now, playing the Free Bird lead every night, and never gets a chance to play his own greatest song.

And RIP to Blackfoot's Jakson "Thunderfoot" Spires, a man with a heart of gold who lived life to its fullest and the kickinest drummer in rock.
