Cousin Of The Main Road (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2008) (song#5434)

A phone call back home from a busy roadside cafe
She’s all alone at the end of another day
No use in begging him to change, he has the keys
To that open range that only a trucker sees

Cousin of the main road, related to the breeze
Rollin’ toward the sunset, goin’ where he may please
His big rig hauls a heavy load of dreams with ease
Cousin of the main road, related to the breeze

He opens up the throttle, picks the open lanes
Thermos full of coffee, kicks wake-up in this veins
His whole world runs on diesel, so to him it seems
With ease, his big rig hauls a heavy load of dreams

– instrumental –

From Houston up to old Cheyenne
Vancouver to Alaska’s range
He’ll always be a truckin’ man
His life you never rearrange
Roll on, roll on

From Miami sun up to Maine
He pays those turnpike tolls again
One more run and then head for home
Back to baby who’s all alone
Roll on, roll on

Cousin of the main road, related to the breeze
Rollin’ toward the sunset, goin’ where he may please
His big rig hauls a heavy load of dreams with ease
Cousin of the main road, related to the breeze

Roll on, roll on
Cousin of the main road, roll on where you please
