Six Days On The Road
Well I pulled out of Pittsburgh, a-rollin' down that Eastern Seaboard
I got my diesel wound up and she's a-runnin' like a-never before
There's a speed zone ahead, but all right
I don't see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight

I got me ten forward gears and a Georgia overdrive
I'm taking little white pills and my eyes are open wide
I just passed a Jimmy in a white
I been a passing everything in sight
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight

Well it seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye
I could have a lot of women but I'm not a-like a-some other guys
I could find one to hold me tight
But I could never make believe it's all right
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight

ICC is a checking on down the line
Well I'm a little overweight and my log book's way behind
But nothin' bothers me tonight
I can dodge all the scales all right
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight

Well my rig's a little old but that don't mean she's slow
There's a flame from her stack and that smoke's a-blowing black as coal
My hometown's a-comin' in sight
If you think I'm a-happy, you're right
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight
