1. Highway to Hell you played me well
You'll Never murder me
But who am I asking forgiveness
On my Judgement Day.

Highway to Hell you taught me well
You tried to seal my fate

2. You held me hostage you broke my will
like an animal in a cage
But who am I to question why
Why my Judgement Day ?

Highway to Hell you hung me high
You had no power over me
Passing me by the Hour is Nigh
You'll have no power over me.

Musical Interlude

3. Highway to Hell taken its toll
You brung me down to your gates
The time is short already late
Get off this Highway of Hell

Highway of Hell I bid thee farewell
You'll never steal my soul
And when I go I'll gladly go
You'll have no power over me.

On Judgement Day what can I say
You'll have no power over me
It is my vow this cup pass from me
For you have now power now
Father it is done this war is won
When he did say

you'll have no power over me
you'll have no power over me
you'll have no power over me

Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer-songwriter and musician. His landmark recordings in 1936 and 1937 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that has influenced later generations of musicians. Johnson's poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend. One Faustian myth says that he sold his soul to the devil at a local crossroads of Mississippi highways to achieve success. As an itinerant performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson had little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime.

After the reissue of his recordings in 1961, on the LP King of the Delta Blues Singers, his work reached a wider audience. Johnson is now recognized as a master of the blues, particularly of the Mississippi Delta blues style. He is credited by many rock musicians as an important influence; the blues and rock musician Eric Clapton has called Johnson "the most important blues singer that ever lived."[1][2]

Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in its first induction ceremony, in 1986, as an early influence on rock and roll.[3] In 2003, David Fricke ranked Johnson fifth in Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".[4]
