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
