Six Days On The Road Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well I pulled outa Pittsburgh
rollin down that eastern sea board
I got my diesel wound up and she's
a runnin like never before
There's a speed trap alright
But I don't see a cop in sight

Six days on the road and i'm gonna
make it home tonight

I got 10 forward gears and a Georgia overdrive
I'm takin little white pills and my eyes are open wide
I just passed a jimmy in white
I've been passin everything in sight

Six days on the road and i'm gonna
make it home tonight

Well it seems like a year since I kissed
my baby goodbye
I could have a lot of women but I'm
not like some other guys
I could find one to hold me tight
but i could never make believe its all right

Six Days on the road and I'm gonna
make it home tonight

You know the ICC is a checkin
on down the line
I'm a little over weight
and my log book's way behind
but nothin bothers me tonight
I can dodge all them scales alright

Six Days on the road and I'm gonna
make it home tonight

This rig's a little old but that
don't mean she's slow
I got a flame from the stack
and that smoke's rollin black as coal
my hometown's comin in sight
if you think I'm happy you're right

Six Days on the road and i'm gonna
make it home tonight

Six Days on the road and i'm gonna
make it home tonight
