When I talk, talk on the C-B
Yeah, I scare men
My, my tire knockers rock the parking lot
Quite a lot, yeah!

Rolled around forty then roared down ten
Released my cargo around the big bend
I always take my time
A maverick moon miner sipping sunshine

Hauled ass to Memphis, I spoke to the Pharaoh
He told me his dreams, I counted the sparrows
Steve McQueen got nothing on me
I'll take you back west of Pleiades's

You want someone to talk to?
Well, I'm your man!
I've seen it all
And I know where you live

High time honey, hell yeah!
What you know, I'm back again, yeah!
Roll, roll down highways
With a vengeance, yeah!

I never, ever sweated
For the fortune and fame game
Nevertheless, I'm flying down the left lane
I always pay my dues, so sit your ass down
I'll show you how they used to

A preacher, a trucker, a high roller
A holy rolling, preaching, rolling trucker

    General CommentAwesome imagery!! Could you imagine turning on your CB and hearing this guy preaching??

    I think this song is just kinda a redux of all those cheesy trucker songs from the seventies like "Convoy" and "East Bound and Down."

    General CommentAlso, the Sun, Moon, and Seven Stars (the pleiades) are a very basic part of Masonic symbolism ( which explains the lines "A maverick moonminer sipping sunshine" and "I'll take ya back, west of Pleiades.". And we all know how Neil loves to mention Freemasons and all the other secret societies.

    General CommentThe pun in the title, in case that escaped anyone, is that Peterbilt is a brand of big rig, and 'The House that (Saint) Peter Built' is Christianity.
