Well I pulled out of Pittsburgh headig down that Eastern seaboard
I got my diesel wound up and she's a running like never before
There's a speed zone ahead that's all right
I don't see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

I got me ten forward gears and a George Overdrive
I'm taking little white pills and my eyes are opened wide
I just passed a Jimmy and a White
I been passing everything in sight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Well it seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye
I could have a lot of women but I'm not alike some other guys
I could find me one to hold me tight
But I could never make believe it's all right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

I.C.C. is a checking on down the line
Well I'm a little overweight and my log book's 'way behind
But nothing bothers me tonight
I can dodge all the scales all right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Well my rigs a little old but that don't mean she's slow
There's a flame from her stack and that smokes been a blowing black as coal
Well my home town's coming in sight
And if you think I'm happy you're right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight
