Charlie was a driver
And he hardly spent
A night at home
He rarely saw his family

Trucking loads
Those long weeks on the road
And Charlie would drive
For miles and miles

Charlie had a teenage daughter
He thought of as a little girl
But one day he came home
His little girl had grown up news to tell

"Oh Daddy", she cried, "Oh Daddy
I tried but on the hayride how I fell
That was a hayride bound for hell"

Now Billy Jackson was the father
But he wasn't man enough to own
And his daddy was the mayor and he said
"Charlie, just leave my Billy boy alone"

Billy had to hide
But there was guilt inside
And you can't hide from yourself
That's just a hayride bound for Hell

Charlie's daughter died
Whilst giving birth
To Billy Jackson's child

And Billy Jackson
Ain't been seen around
These parts for quite a while
And Charlie would drive
For miles and miles

And his tail lights say farewell
He's a hayride bound for hell
