pickup man lyrics – diffie joe

well i got my first truck
when i was three
drove a hundred-thousand
miles on my knees

hauled marbles and rocks
and thought twice before
i hauled a barbie-doll bed
for the girl next-door

she tried to pay me with a kiss
and i began to understand
there’s something women like
about a pickup man

when i turned sixteen
i saved a few hundred bucks
my first car was a pickup truck

i was cruising the town
and the first girl i seen
was bobbie jo gentry
the homecoming queen

she flagged me down
and climed up in the cab
and said “i never knew you were a pickup man”

-chorus-
you can set my truck on fire
and roll it down a hill
and i still wouldn’t trade it
for a coupe deville
-chorus-

i got an eight foot bed
that never has to be made
yaknow if it weren’t for trucks
we wouldn’t have tailgates

i met all my wives
in traffic jams
there’s just something women like
about a pickup man

most friday nights
i can be found
in the bed of my truck
on an old chaise lounge

backed in to my spot
at the drive-in show
you know a cargo light
gives off a romantic glow

i never have to wait in line
at the popcorn stand
because there’s something women like
about a pickup man

-chorus-

awwwww stand on it, son

-interlude-

a bucket of rust
or a brand new machine
once around the block
and you’ll know what i mean

-chorus-

yeah there’s something women like
about a pickup man

awwwww drive that pickup, son

-begin fade out-
