trucker man lyrics – john rich

he’s got a sunburn on his left arm
from hangin’ out a peterbilt window
got a wife and three kids on the farm
drivin’ just as fast as he can go, yeah

minneapolis in his rear view
he’s a dead headin’ to tulsa
got the hammer down on 82
with every mile marker getting’ closer, i said

hey, he’s a trucker man
tryin’ to get home just as fast as he can
those redeye runs are taking their toll
his eighteen wheeler is a rollin’ back home

starin’ a hole through the windshield
he’s got nineteen on the cb wheel
they call him the bandit
’cause he only brakes for the smokies, i said

hey, he’s a trucker man
tryin’ to get home just as fast as he can
those redeye runs are taking their toll
his eighteen wheeler is a rollin’ back home

he’s got a smith and wesson in the glove box
and mother mary on the dashboard
he’s a red blooded, blue collar man
american right to the core

hey, he’s a trucker man
tryin’ to get home just as fast as he can
those redeye runs are taking their toll
his eighteen wheeler is a rollin’ back home

say it, hey, he’s a trucker man
tryin’ to get home just as fast as he can
those redeye runs are taking their toll
his eighteen wheeler is a rollin’ back home
well, he’s rollin’ back home
