Lyrics
I got my diesel wound up and she's rollin' like a-never before.
There's a speed zone ahead, all right, but I don't see a cop in sight.
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight.

I got me ten forward gears and a Georgia overdrive.
Takin' little white pills and my eyes are open wide.
I just passed a Jimmy in a white. I been passin' everything in sight.
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight.

Instrumental break.

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

Well, ICC is a checkin' on down the line.
An' I'm a little overweight and my log book's a way behind.
But nothin' bothers me tonight, I can dodge them scales all right.
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight.

Well my rig's a little old but that don't mean she's slow.
There's a flame from the stack and the smoke's blowin' black as coal.
Well, my home town's comin' in sight. If you think I'm a happy you're right.
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight.
Six days on the road and I'm a-gonna make it home tonight.
