The Road Hammers – Keep On Truckin' lyrics

Some days I don't know if I'll make it by
The price of diesel's gettin' mighty high
I live on caffeine and borrowed time
Stretchin' a nickel into a dime
The G man, the T man, the highway cop
Try to slow me down but they can't make me stop

I, I keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
Yeah, I keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
These 18 wheels ain't stoppin' for nothin'
When the goin' gets tough I just keep on truckin'

Stopped Friday night down in Louisiane
Groovin' to the tunes of the roadhouse band
Raisin' the roof off that little bar
Sweatin' out a tune for a tip in a jar
More power to ya, if ya do what ya love
Keep pushin' back when push comes to shove

Keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
Yeah, I keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
Hey, man, don't show down and don't stop for nothin'
When the goin' gets tough, you just keep on truckin'

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

I try to keep my life on the centre line
The Devil's always messin' with my mind
(He pulls me to the left, he pulls me to the right)
We end up in the ditch in a helluva fight
Well, sometimes I lose, baby, sometimes I win
I'll always end up on a highway again

And I keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
Yeah, I keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
When the hill gets steep and it starts to rain
I just get down and hit the hammer again

'Cause I keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
Yeah, you know, I keep on truckin' (keep on truckin')
These 18 wheels they ain't stoppin' for nothin'
When the goin' gets tough I just keep on truckin'

I'm gonna keep on truckin' (rollin' down the road)
Keep on
