MY PAPA WAS A TRUCK DRIVIN' MAN ┬ęPat Flanakin

VERSE My papa was a truck drivin' man
Haulin' freight and produce 'cross this land
He held the wheel with strong steady hands
My papa was a truck drivin' man

CHORUS I can hear that big freightliner
Howlin' through the night
At eighty miles an hour
Without a cop in sight
He can't wait to get back home again
My papa was a truck drivin' man

VERSE My mama was a truck driver's wife
She never once complained about her life
Though at times I knew she missed my papa bad
My papa was a truck drivin' man

BREAK (Verse)

CHORUS 2 I can see that big freightliner
'Rollin down the road
Never runnin' empty
Always got a load
He can't wait to get back home again
My papa was a truck drivin' man

VERSE Now I am a truck driver's son
I always feel the need to up and run
Though I can't seem to make her understand
My papa was a truck drivin' man

TAG No I can't seem to make her understand
My papa was a truck drivin' man
