"Road Man" as written by and Gregory D. Camp....
Road man driving in the road van
He's got to beat the clock to the next town
Road man driving in the road van
I set up the sound system for the band
Road man slow it down
And you will get there safe and sound
He says no no no the show must go on
Road man driving like a mad man
Breaking land speed records in the van
Road man he don't mind police man
Leaving a trail of ripped up citations
Road man heavy load
He's got to stop and smell the rose
Road man he says no go
I've got to be the king of the road
Road man didn't see the train man
Until it was too late to slow the van
Meanwhile the band is waiting for the Road man
Who was crushed by his beloved sound system

    General CommentThis is a pretty depressing song. It starts out happy, and you think it's gonna be really pleasant. Then he gets hit by a train. Is that a sign?

    General CommentReggaelicious. Makes me think of Radio Free Steve for some irrational reason. That is to say - the short film about the guy who cruises around in the van dodging dystopians in an apocalyptic world broadcasting electronic music...

    has anyone heard of it?

    My InterpretationThe guy is so busy that he drives too fast causing him to collide with an oncoming train and die. bu dum bum.
    Anybody else notice in a lot of 90's songs the singers randomly starts using a Jamaican accent? like in Who Let The Dogs Out for example.
