Six Days On The Road

Writers: Earl Green & Carl Montgomery

Performed by BR549 on Live Coast to Coast

(A)Well I pulled out of Pittsburgh rollin (E)down that Eastern seaboard(A)
I got my diesel wound up and she’s (E)arunning like never before(A)
There’s (D)speed zone in heaven (E)allright
And I (A)don’t see a cop in (D)sight
Six (A)days on the road & I’m (E)gonna make it home tonight

I got me ten forward gears & a George Overdrive
I’m takin’ little white pills & my eyes are opened wide
I just passed a Jimmy in White
I been passing everything in sight
Six days on the road & I’m gonna make it home tonight

I.C.C. is a checkin on down the line
Well I’m a little overweight log books are way behind
But nothing bothers me tonight
I can dodge all the scales allright
Six days on the road & I’m gonna make it home tonight

Well it seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye
I could have a lotta women but I’m not alike some other guys
I could find me one to hold me tight
But I could never make believe it’s allright
Six days on the road & I’m gonna make it home tonight

Well my rigs a little old but that don’t mean she’s slow
There’s a flame from her stack & that smokes a blowin’ black as coal
Well my home town’s comming in sight
And if you think I’m happy you’re right
Six days on the road & I’m gonna make it home tonight
