Heart Of Texas (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2008) (song#5310)

Rollin’ hard and rollin’ mean
Headin’ up toward Abilene
Texas Freightliner with big smokin’ rollin’ wheels
Texas moon is out tonight
Bugs mashed on the bright headlights
The Heart of Texas knows how a big diesel feels
Yeah, the Heart of Texas is on the road again

And the big ‘ol concrete superslab
Knows every trooper and big rig scab
Now, listen to the big diesel howl
While ‘ol Smokey Bear is on the prowl
Pull on over, pay the fine, and then
The Heart of Texas is gone again

Rollin’ hard and rollin’ mean
No time for a truck stop queen
Texas Freightliner with big smokin’ rollin’ wheels
Eyes are bloodshot red and white
Lookin’ for the mornin’ light
The Heart of Texas knows how a big diesel feels
Yeah, the Heart of Texas is on the road again

– instrumental –

And the big ‘ol concrete superslab
Knows every trooper and big rig scab
Now, listen to the big diesel howl
While ‘ol Smokey Bear is on the prowl
Pull on over, pay the fine, and then
The Heart of Texas is gone again

Big ‘ol Freightliner slowin’ on down
The roadside diner outside of town
Has an old jukebox that plays country songs for real
Cup of coffee by a neon light
Give a wave bye and I’m out of sight
The Heart of Texas knows how a big diesel feels
Yeah, the Heart of Texas is on the road again

Well, the Heart of Texas is a live Freightliner
And I’m the next of kin
