(I never had too much trouble gettin' a ride,
it always came pretty easy.
Just stick up my thumb then my finger.
The big cars seldom stop.
The big Cadillacs, they don't even look at you.
They got the stereo on and they're going to town.
I don't know --
I never stopped and picked up anybody in a Cadillac either...)

Truck driver, truck driver,
Stop your Diamond T.
Do you have room inside your rig
For a highway bum like me?
Hey… thank you very much.
Don't suppose you can sorta scoot over a little bit
And give me a little more room…
Cuz I got looooong legs
And it's a long way to where I'm goin'.

Truck driver, truck driver
Let your diesel roll.
Now… do you have one cigarette for a man who's wet and cold?
Hey, thank you very much.
I don't reckon you got one of those filter-tips instead?
I don't really like them regular cigarettes.
They're bad for your lungs.
Know what I mean?
It's a long way to where I'm goin'.

Truck driver, truck driver
Let me ask you one thing more
If I can't sleep in your sleeper cab,
Can I sleep on your trailer floor?
Thank you very much.
I don't suppose I can sorta borrow your jacket
Ta' kinda cover up and get warm with…
Cuz I'm cooooold
And it's a long way to where I'm goin'.

Truck driver, truck driver
I see in that plastic frame
A picture of a sexy blonde
And you know… that's my kinda dame.
Man… I'd really like to grab onto those.
Your wife, huh?
Well… it's a long way to where I'm goin'.

Truck driver, truck driver
Thank you for the ride.
Now if you'll lend me a dollar and half
I'll move on down the line.
Well… there ain't no need to get mad about it.
Some folks don't never do nuthin for nobody.
I ain't gonna ride with you no more.
Yeah, mister, you sure do have a good lookin' old lady.
Like to get a hold of her.
[Fade out]
