pickup man lyrics – joe diffie

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 i began to understand
there’s just 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 cruisin’ the town and the first girl i seen
was bobbie jo gentry, the homecoming queen
she flagged me down and climbed up in the cab, and said
“i never knew you were a pickup man!”

you can set my truck on fire, and roll it down a hill
and i still wouldn’t trade it for a coupe deville
i’ve got an eight-foot bed that never has to be made
you know 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 into 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
’cause there’s something women like about a pickup man

you can set my truck on fire, and roll it down a hill
and i still wouldn’t trade it for a coupe deville
i’ve got an eight-foot bed that never has to be made
you know 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

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

you can set my truck on fire, and roll it down a hill
and i still wouldn’t trade it for a coupe deville
i’ve got an eight-foot bed that never has to be made
you know 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
yes, there’s something women like about a pickup man
