    After 800 miles you know how it feels
    To have your rear so numb you gotta poke it
    To see if it's still there
    Well it's one more load to one more town
    Only problem is they're all starting to sound a bit similar
    Lord knows they all look the same
    So I got some hot coffee in Furnace Creek
    Abut the trouble is I was never neat and I spilled it
    And my map and phonebook were a blur
    But I had a girl and a job to do
    Or was that job and a girl to do?
    I don't know - I had to go and my velvet interior was a soggy mess
    I think I got a girl named Mary down in Susanville
    Waitin' for me to come home and make her my wife
    I know I got a load of somethin' goin' to somewhereville
    But I can't remember which to save to save my life
    With a load to Mr. Johnson in Watsoville
    Or is that a load to Mr. Watson in Johnsonville?
    Well, anyway, after several days I don't know what or if it mattered
    Just a load of placer to Cedarville, or a load of cedar to Placerville
    Or a container full of things up to Diamond Springs for an indoor swapmeet
    Is that a cargo of hay south to Northfork, Some plastic forks north to Hayfork,
    Or a bunch of men's nugget watches straight through to Pixley,
    Or Apple Jacks down to Fall River Mills or honor snacks up to Downieville?
    Well, the white girls are cute that I've met in Blackbute,
    But I'll stick to the road and finish my beer and coffee
    Now I am marrying Jan from Susanville
    Or am I suing Jane from Mary'sville?
    Cause if I am I better call Ernie my attorney from Burney Falls
    Well, all I know is if I recall-
    She had the longest legs and she was kinda tall
    And prettier than a catfish
    With its nose up against the dam
    Without a girl and some time to kill I ran some baby food to Gerberville
    And took some airplane parts to Wilbur in Oreville
    Now that can't be Wright
    Well it's one more load one more town
    Only problem is they're all startin' to sound a bit similar
    Lord knows they all look the same
