SIX DAYS ON THE ROAD
Writers Earl Green, Carl Montgomery
Well, I pulled out of Pittsburgh Rollin' down the Eastern Seaboard I've got my diesel wound up And she's running like never before There's a speed zone ahead, all right I don't see a cop in sight Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight I got ten forward gears And a Georgia overdrive I'm taking little white pills And my eyes are open wide I just passed a 'Gimmy' and a 'White' I've been passin' everything in sight Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight Well, it seems like a month Since I kissed my baby good-bye I could have a lot of women But I'm not like some other guys I could find one to hold me tight But I could never believe that it's right Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight I.C.C. is checking on down the line I'm a little overweight and my log's three days behind But nothing bothers me tonight I can dodge all the scales all right Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight Well my rig's a little old But that don't mean she's slow There's a flame from her stack And the smoke's rolling black as coal My hometown's coming in sight If you think I'm happy your right Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight
