Back home they're all circled 'round a Butterball turkey
While I bow my head over stale beef jerky
I munched on sweets, slaw, Boston baked beans
Found out milk duds will stick to your jeans

I'm all alone but I don't hold a grudge
Cuz I'm first in line for maplenut fudge
Pancakes, beer, poured on the griddle
Charlie Daniels in my head heatin' up the fiddle

Truckstop Thanksgiving
Only comes but once'd a year
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Better stock up on your beer
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Wipe the gravy off your face
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Pump seven please say grace

Traffic is heavy and my heart is too
Them rubbers in the glovebox will soon be used
I'm payin' for a lover and I know it's wrong
A one-legged whore who can't wear a thong

Her name is Tina and she's pregnant again
But with just one leg, she still looks thin
Next morning she claimed to find religion too
I said "I'm glad you found Jesus, but I've lost your shoe"

Truckstop Thanksgiving
Only comes but once'd a year
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Better stock up on your beer
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Wipe the gravy off your face
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Pump seven please say grace

Met a nice young gal
Was a daughter of the cook
Got engaged, but we're still allowed to look
Said "Put on some music if you'd like to dance"
She said "I was invited to the party in the pants"

We danced all night till her daddy walked in
Just rolled his eyes and said "There she goes again"
She took me out back and spread out a quilt
And said I just love a man who drives a Peterbilt

Truckstop Thanksgiving
Only comes but once'd a year
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Try the dark meat if you're queer
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Wipe the gravy off your face
Bring it home boys
Truckstop Thanksgiving
Pump seven please say grace

Goodnight
