{Chorus}:
Big wheel don't you roll
Big diesel, don't you whine
Through the night
As I'm runnin' down the road
Big semi, don't you stop
'Cause if you do
I'm not gonna make it back
To Baltimore with my load

Well the truckstop's warm and friendly
And the coffee keeps me up
And the waitress there
Would like to waste my time
But I'll have to pass it by
As it's down the road I fly
Just a-racin'
With that pocketwatch of mine

{Chorus}

Smoke a-puffin', tires a-hummin'
Burnin' up the road
Countin' road signs
And the miles to Baltimore
One eye out for weigh stations
One for radar traps
They can't stop me
'Cause my plans don't call for that
