Headin' down to Memphis draggin' a heavy load
Cold night wind a blowin' on a long dark stretch of road
The night had been a long one the hours were going slow
Started gettin' sleepy so turned on my radio
(Hi welcome to the night show got a ton of records here to spin
If you're out there traveling on the road oh be careful there my friends
Got news alive at 55 and understand the weatherman says snow
Till six a.m. just be my guest I'm DJ Memphis Joe)
Just rolled on through Brownsville my rig was runnin' fine
Heard Joe give a warnin' icy roads on down the line
Well I better gear her down now there's a bad curve up ahead
And if by chance I hit that ice I might wind up dead
(Yeah you listen to the night show for all you truck drivin' men
I got a brand new record here called Diesel No 10
Now the snow's begun so on your run just take it kinda slow
And keep your dial set where it is to DJ Memphis Joe)
I can just see Memphis down in the morning light
Hear Joe signin' off now we made it through another night
But anytime I'm a travelin' down a long dark road
There'll be a station somewhere with a DJ named of Joe
