I like the rumble of the diesel
And the smell of the oil
I percolate my coffee
On the radiator boil
I been chasin' tuna nearly 27 years
I got the eyeballs of an eagle
But there's ringing in my ears

I like the rumble of the diesel
And the smell of the oil
Granddad was a farmer but i couldn't stand the soil
I like to keep it simple
It helps to keep me sane
I like floating in the ocean
It nullifies the pain

Some say we can find a place
Between Heaven and Hell
Some work to make the bread rise
I like to plow the ocean swell
Errol's got a sweet Monteray
Rigged for salmon and crab
Never had a family
Unless you count that old yellow Lab

Lookin' back to '95
I had a fresh Cummings re-power
Draggin' lines for Albacore
'Till the market went sour
We talked of strike for 40 days
'Cause the price was drove down
And when I finally settled up
We got less than a dollar a pound

I like the rumble of the diesel
