Drive America

(C) 2019 Geneva Griffin

V1
I traded my old Peterbuilt
For a Kenworth 13 speed
Payments up the backside
Cup'a hun'rd mile coffee.
Less crawlin' on the incline
Cheatin' in my log books
I still keep my pricin' honest
While deliverin' more goods.

CH
I don't claim to be a highway hero
I'm a man with a heavy load
I'm in it for the long haul
Help us keep on keepin' on strong....
I just keep on truckin' cuz it's in my blood and from my heart
I drive America

V2
I'm proud to be some part
Of the US of A backbone
The heartbeat of America
Got the goods movin' along
I'm no mother cluckin' son
I run hard wet, dry, or ice
It's not yer ever'day 9 to 5'r
Your lifeline's my way of life

CH
I don't claim to be a highway hero
I'm a man with a heavy load
I'm in it for the long haul
Help keep us keep on keepin' on strong....
I just keep on truckin' cuz it's in my blood and from my heart
I drive America

Bridge
I won't give the finger
If I don't get cut off
There's rubber neckers in the hammer lane
While a bear makes a traffic stop..
This sucker for a youngster
Who gives an arm pump
Will gladly blow the air horn
Proudly drivin' America

CH
I don't claim to be a highway hero
I'm a man with a heavy load
I'm in it for the long haul
Help us keep on keepin' on strong....
I just keep on truckin' cuz it's in my blood and from my heart
I drive America

I tryin' keep the shelves well stocked
Your cupboards full like all the ole road dogs
Drivin' America

You stay on theme very strongly. Some gravel-voiced trucker would pick this up and sing it. But, if you're a lady trucker, hearing that voice,a and seeing a video, could be powerfully effective too!

Thanks Gary,

I like the Male POV best. I once wrote a lyric called this truckers wife. It was about his long runs and kinda mushy about her missing him and then him coming home.

My husbands idea of music is listening to Serus satelite Radio going down the road
