I feel this song is about a trucker that can see his death coming and is powerless to stop it so he then accepts his fate. My father picked this song to play at his funeral when he was dying from a terminal illness and like the trucker in this song was powerless to stop it and accepted that this was how he was going out. I also think that "the lights on the hill blinding me" phrase is what you feel when you told of your fate you are blinded for a minute. This song has helped me understand my dads feelings at the time and every time I hear it I think of him.
