Was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June
Cab-over Pete with a reefer on
We is headin' for bear on I-one-oh
I says, "Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Duck.

Rockin' through the night.
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way.
'Cross the U-S-A.

We had eighty-five trucks in all.
And them bears was wall-to-wall.
They even had a bear in the air!
"We about to go a-huntin' bear."
'Cause we got a great big convoy
Yeah, we got a great big convoy,
Come on and join our convoy
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy
Well, we rolled up Interstate 44
We tore up all of our swindle sheets,
By the time we hit that Chi-town,
They'd brought up some reinforcements
There's armored cars, and tanks, and jeeps,
Yeah, them chicken coops was full'a bears
Well, we shot the line and we went for broke
An' eleven long-haired Friends a' Jesus

Prepared to cross the line
But I didn't have a dog-goned dime.
"We just ain't a-gonna pay no toll."
I says "Let them truckers roll, 10-4."
'Cause we got a mighty convoy
Yeah, we got a mighty convoy,
Come on and join our convoy
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy
Convoy! Convoy! Convoy! Convoy!
