Six days on the road and I’m a gonna make it home tonight!

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 other guys
I could find one to hold me tight!
.                                    But I could never make believe it’s alright!
Six days on the road and I’m a gonna make it home tonight!

Well the ICC is a checkin’ on down the line
Well I’m a little overweight and my log book’s way behind
But nothin’ bothers me tonight! I can dodge all the scales alright!
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 her stack and that smoke’s a blowin’ black as coal
My hometown’s a 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
