    Vintage Kenny!
    I always wondered how a guy who’d never been in a fight in his life could instantly turn into Harley Race.

      “I always wondered how a guy who’d never been in a fight in his life could instantly turn into Harley Race”

      Perhaps you should have paid closer attention to the lyrics. The song never stated that Tommy was not a big or a strong man – only that he turned the other cheek when it came to confrontations. Tommy’s wife was brutally assaulted and raped. Rather strong motivation to seek his own justice wouldn’t you say?

      One of Kenny’s most requested radio hits .
