I was ten days on the road, not six, and flying a lot more than driving, but it’s still good to be home. I’ve loved this song since I was a kid (I still own my great-great uncle’s copy of All Time Great Trucking Songs on vinyl), but I’ve never heard Steve Earle’s version until now.
Well my rig’s a little low, but that don’t mean she’s slow
Got the stacks blowin’ fire and the smoke’s blowing black as coal
My hometown’s coming in sight
If you think I’m happy, you’re right
Six days on the road and now I’m gonna make it home tonight
