Seven pm I left Norfolk Virginia a little night trip down to Alabam
Early next morning I was loaded and ready hauling rolled steel out of Birmingham
Got my eyes on the road my back to the load and my hands on the wheel
I'm a long run rider I'm a concrete cowboy rolling down the road on rubber and steel
[ guitar ]
Dropped off a load out in San Diego layed up with a girl who lives by the bay
Called my dispatcher and I'm hauling nitro but it's alright I'm gonna get double pay
Got my eyes on the road...
[ guitar ]
Drove to Duluth by way of Kansas City layed up with Loretta out in Omaha
I'm making a midnight run to Miami hauling nine pound hammers out of Sagina
Got my eyes on the road...
[ guitar ]
I get so tired man I get so lonely sometimes I wonder if it's worth the cost
But I keep on rollin' down these highways of freedom
Black smoke pourin' from my dual exhausts
Got my eyes on the road...
I'm a long run rider I'm a concrete cowboy rolling down the road on rubber and steel
