cause he's not
I heard his Harley
roaring when he left
to go where Harley riders go.
I don't think it's heaven,
But I'm sure it's not hell
but I know there is a place
where all Harley Riders go.
And when you are in the
mountains, drinking a cold beer
I know if you listen
you'll hear his Harley there.
And when you go to meet him
please tell him hi from me
cause I know I'll never be able
to go where Harley Riders go.
But we will listen when we hear
the rumbles in the sky
I know Irish and his Harley brothers
are riding wherever Harley riders go.
Don't weep for Irish
He will meet you there
wherever that is
that Harley Riders go.
