Forty-one tonnes of truckin under me
I guess most of time, I’m where I’m supposed to be
If I get out, it’s only for a minute
If you see the girl, shout, you can bet I’m in it

It’s nice to chat but I tell you something
Got my rig out back and the engine’s runnin’
I always know when it’s time to go
Gonna hitch up my load and get back on the road

I’ve been a teacher and a preacher, a big lifetime ago
Then a broker and a lawyer, how’d I every sink that low?
Then one day I woke up and gave me a slap
Sold the car and house and bought me a Mack

It’s nice to chat but I tell you something
Got my rig out back and the engine’s runnin’
I always know when it’s time to go
Gonna hitch up my load and get back on the road

Sure there’s some who’ll ridicule
But loving this life, does it make me a fool?

Once I had me the prettiest girl around
And I’m sorry to say, I ain’t with her now
But I’ll see her in an hour and I’ll be polite
Then I’m gonna see my boy Jimmy tonight

I love to chat but I tell you something
Got my rig out back and the engine’s runnin’
I always know when it’s time to go
Gonna hitch up my load and hit the road
Yeah I love to chat but I tell you something
Got my rig out back and the diesel’s humming
I always know when it’s time to go
I’m gonna hitch up my load, it’s time to go
Hitch up my load and get back on the road
