You got the willies and the shakes and the creeps
The stupid rig ain't supposed to ride like this
Don't wanna wind up in a smokin' heap
Head for the rails and you feel a little kiss
The trailer's movin' with a mind of its own
And he decide he disagree with the cab
Clench the wheel with a white knucklebone
Pump on the brake but the fucker just won't grab
Shouldn't a hit the road today
Cause the radio said it's an hour delay
But you hit the road cause you plumb forgot
And now you start to slide and what do you got

You got a Jackknife, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Jackknife, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

The gig is over now it's time to get going
You parked the van behind the tailor
A buncha cars done parked you in
And now you gotta back around a corner with the trailer
You think you're cool cause you're going straight
But the turn comes up and the angle's wrong
Try to fix it but it's too late
And then you hear the metal crunch and then you're singin' my song
You thought you had this shit down cold
But it's more complicated than you were told
And now you overloaded your feeble mind
Cause the van and the trailer are intertwined
