truckin’ man lyrics – dale watson

(chorus:)
if i was a truckin’ man
i’d be a gear jammer with a one-armed tan
i’d spend my nights in the roadhouse
days on the lost highway
hey, if i was a truckin’ man
i’d have my radio screamin’ on the am band
all night drivin’ by dashboard lights
if i was a truckin’ man

now i can’t let my life slip away
pushin’ these number two pencils everyday
this rat race don’t fit into my plan, no ma’am
i’m dreamin’, schemin’, if i was a truckin’ man

(chorus:)
if i was a truckin’ man
i’d be a gear jammer with a one-armed tan
i’d spend my nights in the roadhouse
days on the lost highway
hey, if i was a truckin’ man
i’d have my radio screamin’ on the am band
all night drivin’ by dashboard lights
if i was a truckin’ man

(guitar/steel solos)

well i’d sign my life away on the dotted white line
drinkin’ my coffee, smokin’ my smokes all night
and if i get tired, i’ll let benny drive if he can
i’m dreamin’, schemin’, if i was a truckin’ man

(chorus:)
if i was a truckin’ man
i’d be a gear jammer with a one-armed tan
i’d spend my nights in the roadhouse
days on the lost highway
hey, if i was a truckin’ man
i’d have my radio screamin’ on the am band
all night drivin’ by dashboard lights
if i was a truckin’ man
