"International Harvester" as written by Shane Allen Minor, Danny Myrick and Jeffrey Steele....
I'm the son of a 3rd generation farmer
I've been married 10 years to the farmer's daughter
I'm a God fearin' hard workin' combine driver
Hoggin' up the road on my p-p-p-p-plower
Chug a lug a luggin' 5 miles an hour
On my International Harvester

Three miles of cars layin' on their horns
Fallin' on deaf ears of corn
Lined up behind me like a big parade
Of late to work road raged jerks
Shoutin' obscene words flippin' me the bird

Well you may be on a state paved road
But that blacktop runs through my payload
Excuse me for tryin' to do my job
But this year ain't been no bumper crop
If you don't like the way I'm a drivin'
Get back on the interstate
Otherwise sit tight and be nice
And quit yer honkin' at me that way

Cause I'm a son of a 3rd generation farmer
I've been married 10 years to a farmer's daughter
I got 2 boys in the county 4-H
I'm a lifetime sponsor of the F.F.A.
Hay! That's what I make
I make a lotta hay for a little pay
But I'm proud to say
I'm a God fearin' hard workin' combine driver
Hoggin' up the road on my a p-p-p-plower
Chug a lug a lugin' 5 miles an hour
On my International Harvester

Well I know you got your own deadlines
But cussin' me ain't savin' no time hoss
This big-wheeled wide load ain't goin' any faster
So just smile and wave and tip your hat
To the man up on the tractor

Cause I'm a son of a 3rd generation farmer
I've been married 10 years to a farmer's daughter
I got two boys in the county 4-H
I'm a lifetime sponsor of the F.F.A.
Hay! That's what I make
I make a lot of hay for a little pay
But I'm proud to say
I'm a God fearin' hard workin' combine driver
Hoggin' up the road on my p-p-p-plower
Chug a lug a lugin' 5 miles an hour
On my International Harvester

I'm a God fearin' hard workin' combine driver
Hoggin' up the road on my p-p-p-plower
Chug a lug a lugin' 5 miles an hour
On my International Harvester

    General Commentobviously this is about a farmer who is just askin for a little respect from other people on the road. he's just trying to make a living and if you can't say somethin' nice, don't say anything at all. i love singing this one on the road, ezpecialy the p-p-p-plower part :)

    My OpinionWhat's wrong these people here, you are wasting your precious time if you'll just go here and comment like "What a lame song?!" get out of here and get a life!

    This may not really be the best country song ever (I know some) but this one is defenitely good.

    General CommentDefinitely agree with bear hug I mean if your just gonna diss on every song just cause you cant get the feeling of respect than bug off and do something with your time since you have some. This song is what you should be listening to and getting the feeling of RESPECT it doesn't mean that he wants to own the roads he's is just trying to make his way through life and if you have a problem with it don't be throwing a fit we all belong in this world
