(Chorus:)
If I was a truckin' man
I'd be a gear jammer with a one-armed tan
I'd spend my nights in the roadhouse
Days on the lost highway
Hey, if I was a truckin' man
I'd have my radio screamin' on the AM band
All night drivin' by dashboard lights
If I was a truckin' man

Now I can't let my life slip away
Pushin' these number two pencils everyday
This rat race don't fit into my plan, no ma'am
I'm dreamin', schemin', if I was a truckin' man

(Chorus:)
If I was a truckin' man
I'd be a gear jammer with a one-armed tan
I'd spend my nights in the roadhouse
Days on the lost highway
Hey, if I was a truckin' man
I'd have my radio screamin' on the AM band
All night drivin' by dashboard lights
If I was a truckin' man

(Guitar/Steel solos)

Well I'd sign my life away on the dotted white line
Drinkin' my coffee, smokin' my smokes all night
And if I get tired, I'll let Benny drive if he can
I'm dreamin', schemin', if I was a truckin' man

(Chorus:)
If I was a truckin' man
I'd be a gear jammer with a one-armed tan
I'd spend my nights in the roadhouse
Days on the lost highway
Hey, if I was a truckin' man
I'd have my radio screamin' on the AM band
All night drivin' by dashboard lights
If I was a truckin' man
