Lyrics

Johnny Rivers

I pulled out of Pittsburgh, rolling down the Eastern seaboard
I got my diesel wound up, and she's a-runnin' like never before
There's a speed zone ahead, alright
I don't see a cop in sight

Six days on the road, and I'm gonna make it home tonight
I got ten forward gears and a George Overdrive
I'm takin' little white pills, and my eyes are opened wide
Well, I just passed a Jimmy and White
I've 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 lotta women, but I'm not like some other guys
I could find me one to hold me tight
But I could never make believe it's alright
Six days on the road, and I'm gonna make it home tonight

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

My rig's a little old, but that don't mean she's slow
There's a flame from her stack and is blowing black as coal
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
Ah, six days on the road, and I'm gonna make it home tonight
