Story Behind the Song

A remake of a song written in the 80s about the Korean airline that was shot down after accidentally venturing into Soviet airspace.

Lyrics

Outlaws in the Sky

Verse 1: It was a cool clear night, with the moon burnin bright
as the big bird flew oh so high
you could see the lights on the great big bird
as it lit up the evening sky

Yes the lights were bright in the middle of the night
as the bird surged through the heavens
when her name was called from far away
said the pilot this is flight 7

Flight 7 this is air control
make your flight plans known
it's a cool clear night, with the moon burnin bright
and you're headed for the danger zone

Chorus: Outlaws, Outlaws in the sky
Outlaws, Outlaws make you cry
On that summer night, many were to die
and we all asked why, oh why
of Outlaws, Outlaws in the sky

Verse 2:
Now the great big bird appeared off course
looking as if to dare
it flew on past the corridor, into the red hawk's lair
now the flight marshal told the red hawk's men
Remember you've got your orders
Don't let that bird fly past our web
over our sacred borders

Now the red hawk had sent out his men
into the naked night
and one of his henchmen radioed back
I have the target in sight

Chorus: Outlaws, Outlaws in the sky
Outlaws, Outlaws make you cry
On that summer night, many were to die
and we all asked why, oh why
of Outlaws, Outlaws in the sky

Instrumental break

Verse 3:
Now the red hawk's man returned to base
and went into the air force bar
he ordered a glass of vodka
and put on his red sheriff's star
and just like it was long ago in that wild western time
innocent souls had met their doom
their lives weren't worth a dime

And if you see the fearful red hawk
or the soaring eagle fly
beware, beware of outlaws
riding roughshod in the sky

Outlaws, Outlaws in the sky
Outlaws, Outlaws make you cry
On that summer night, many were to die
and we all asked why, oh why
of Outlaws, Outlaws in the sky
Outlaws, outlaws in the sky!
