The Truck Drivin’ Song
Copyright 2012 by Paul Arow

I was drivin’ a load down the highway
Saw a girl who was standin’ in the road
She was wavin’ me down outside of Tucson town
So I picked her up just for the ride
She said she was headed to Nogales
It was ninety miles out of my way
Said her name was just Chris and she gave me a kiss
When I pulled over to the roadside

She looked like a free and gentle angel child
Warmer than the sunlight rays
And I was just I scared and lonely boy sailin’ away
Down that highway
Say ya goin my way?
Honey I will take you anywhere you wanna go
Don’t you know?

Said she was meetin’ a friend down at the border
And she asked me to wait ‘till he arrived
But wouldn’t you know he never did show
So I gave her a place for the night
We crashed out in my queen sized sleeper
Soon I woke to the new morning dawn
When she opened her eyes she said I’ve got a surprise
And she made it feel oh so right

Repeat Chorus

Well I dropped her off in Alamogordo
And headed out to New Orleans
I drank a cup of black mud to perk up my blood
And drove it straight through on down that white line
I don’t know if I ever will see her
And I still think of her now and then
I just keep drivin’ this road puliin’ my load
And countin’ those highway signs

Repeat Chorus
