Heavy Load Hauler (Larry W. Jones 07/19/2009) (song#5926)

A young truck driver walked into the cafe
Complaining ’bout the route he had to drive
I looked at him and all I had to say
Son, you’ve gotta drive that rig to survive

I’m a heavy load hauler, an over the road crawler
I can’t wait for my next hard run
I’m from Texas and I’m taller, drivin’ for the dollar
I don’t retard that throttle, son

I’ve drove interstates around the Great Lakes
I love to make big diesels cry and whine
And son, what I have found, for goodness sakes
You’ll be a heavy load hauler in time

I’m a heavy load hauler, an over the road crawler
I can’t wait for my next hard run
I’m from Texas and I’m taller, drivin’ for the dollar
I don’t retard that throttle, son

(instrumental)

He swallowed down his coffee, tipped a dime
And said he’d give it some more time to see
Outside his diesel roared from being primed
He’ll be a heavy load hauler like me

I’m a heavy load hauler, an over the road crawler
I can’t wait for my next hard run
I’m from Texas and I’m taller, drivin’ for the dollar
I don’t retard that throttle, son

I’m a heavy load hauler on an over the road hard run
