Drivin' Fool

Drivin' Fool

Aaron Tippin

I pulled over at a little truck stop
Just outside El Paso, Texas one night
Gonna try to get a cup of coffee 'n' wake up

Walked inside, sat down beside this old truck driver
We started yappin' next thing
You know were playin' cards
He beat the socks off me

Then it came time for us to go
So we walked outside
I headed for my rig
He headed for his

But just before he climbed up in that cab
I saw him get down on his knee
And I heard him say this little prayer

Lord, everyday help me make the grain
Help me pull my way down the long highway
Keep my coffee hot and may my breaks stay cool

Lord, please take care of this drivin' fool
Keep my hands steady on the wheel
Keep me in control of this chrome and steel
My only prayer is
Lord, that you keep takin' care of this drivin' fool

In the pourin' rain and the hot sunshine
When the blindin' snow hides the long white line
If it's rough or if it's smooth
Lord, please take care of this drivin' fool

As he drove away, I thought
Now there's a man living everyday giving all he can
Then it dawned on me maybe we should too
'Cause ain't we all jus' drivin' fools

In the pourin' rain and the hot sunshine
When the blindin' snow hides the long white line
If it's rough or if it's smooth
Lord, please take care of this drivin' fool
Lord, please take care of this drivin' fool
