Some call it the ribbon
Some say the white line
I say truck stop living
Well, it suits me fine

Every day of the week
Every day of the week

We heard some other fellers talking
I think it's going to be a good fight
Tonight the radio is rocking
I'm going to hear my favorite song

If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night

I'm going to wash my favorite shirt
In downtown Marseilles
It’s got the same old dirt
From up in Calais, oh, oh

How many days and weeks?
How many days and weeks?

Now every job it is important
But still sometimes the money's right
I saw the ghost of Johnny Horton
He said we're going to make El Paso

If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night

If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night

I lost my favorite cook
He left little Siam
For many years I looked
He said, "Here I am", oh, oh

Every day of the week
Every day of the week

Some got to go and see their mama
Some got to play a show tonight
I got to go and see my baby
When next I sleep I'll be with her

If it takes all night
If it takes all night
If it takes all night
...
