Review The Song (0)


(1st Verse)
Hello, I'm a truck.
Well, you've heard songs about truck drivers many times their stories told.
How they pulled out of Pittsburg for six days on the road.
'Bout the Feather River Canyon, and climbin' that old grapevine.
That old roadhouse out in Texas and the girls they've left behind.
Well, you've heard their tales of daring and I think that's just fine.
But, if you could spare a minute, well I'd like to tell you mine.

(Chorus)
Well, there'd be no truck drivers if it wasn't for us trucks.
No double-clutching, gear-jamming, coffee drinking nuts.
Well, they'd drive their way to glory, and they have all the luck.
But, there'd be no truck drivers if it wasn't for us trucks.

(Spoken)
Well there he sits in that cafe, drinking coffee and telling lies.
Prob'ly telling 'em how he topped that hill ten miles back.
He oughta' tell 'em how he missed a gear,
And that Volkswagen Bus full of hippies passed us like I was sitting up on jacks.
Or, how he took that curve over on 66,
Hadn't-a been for me hanging on to the shoulder, we'd both wound up in the ditch.

(2nd Verse)
If we're on time he takes the credit, if we're late I get the blame.
Up those hills my shutters open, my stacks are running flame.
My tack a running red line sucking diesel from the tanks.
Well, I'd take him south and bring him back without a word of thanks.
So, now you've heard my story, and I guess it's my tough luck.
There'd be no truck drivers if it wasn't for us trucks.

(Chorus)
Well, there'd be no truck drivers if it wasn't for us trucks.
No double-clutching, gear-jamming, coffee drinking nuts.
Well, they'd drive their way to glory, and they have all the luck.
But, there'd be no truck drivers if it wasn't for us trucks.

(Spoken)
Look at him sipping coffee and flirtin' with that waitress.
And, where do you think he left me? That's right, next to a cattle truck (mooo)!
Why couldn't he have put me next to that little pink Mack sittin' over there.
Gosh, she's got pretty mud flaps, and talk about stacks - they're both chromed.
Well, he'll be coming out in a minute,
And he'll get that bar and he'll go around and beat on my tires
You know, for two pints of diesel, I'd have a flat on the inside dual.
Ha! That'd fix him!
I never did like the way he drives anyhow.
Thinks he's God's gift to waitresses, he never gives 'em a tip.
Well, I know what he's gonna do now,
He's gonna take out that tape cartridge of Buck Owens and play it again.
I don't know why he don't get a Merle Haggard tape.

Shhhhhhhhh
