Lyrics

Nobody gonna take my car, I'm gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car, it's gonna break the speed of sound
Ooh it's a killing machine it's got everything
Like a drawing power big fat tires everything

Simply put, Awesome song! Awesome band! I just wish new music sounded this good.
And not to "dis" other pickers but F**K Metal Church! They clearly need MORE "PURPLE SCHOOLIN"
Nothing needs to be said...
Everyone knows!

The live version is One of the greatest pieces of music ever. Made in Japan

Man, Made in Japan has kind of spoiled me. I'm so used to the break-neck pace of the live version. Still a great song.
How can't this band not be in the hall of fame
Dear Ritchie, Thanks for everything, including my outfits! Signed, your friend, Yngwie.
Tremendously great song with one of Ritchie Blackmore's best solos ever with the Bach progression and outstanding plectrum wielding, not to mention the epochal tone from his Strat and Major. Has to be in the very top solos of anybody at any time.
Great song from a GREAT album
I agree Frank. Excellent organ and guitar solos. I love playing this song! True cruisin' down the highway music!
WE NEED SOME REAL ROCK BAND LIKE THESE NOW I AM NOT TO OLD !!

One of their BEST..... as usual!!

Hiway Star is representati v e of some of their best work, much of which can be found on the "Machine Head" album. If you're looking for authentic and unapologetic Rock 'n' Roll, that album made it into just about everybody's collection in the '70's. Still holds up very well.

ritchie blackmore's best solo
it's a great song by deep purple hope to listen it the whole song
I doubt that ems77 has even heard the Metal Church version. How can one not like it?
Both are classics though.
No doubt, the Made In Japan recording is the premier version of this song - far better than the studio version.
(Metal Church? Uh...yeah, ok. Ooo boy. Egad.)

Rarely does a cover top the original and this is no exception. Metal Church did an excellent version of Highway Star, but it is not better DP's. IMHO, Deep Purple's best ever effort at this one is on Made In Japan.
Metal Church's version of this song is much better.
