Leon Russell - Truck Drivin' Man Lyrics

I stopped at a roadhouse in Texas
A little place called Hamburger Dan
I heard that old jukebox started playin'
THe song about a 'Truck Drivin' Man'

Well the waitress then brought me some coffee
And I thanked her and called her again
I said, "That old song there sure does fit me
'Cause I'm a truck drivin' man"

So pour me another cup of coffee
For it is the best in the land
And put another nickel in the jukebox
And play that 'Truck Drivin' Man'

And I climbed back aboard my old semi
Again like a flash I was gone
I heard them old truck wheels start rollin'
I'm on my way down to San Antone

Oh so, pour me another cup of coffee
For it is the best in the land
And put another nickel in the jukebox
We gonna play a little 'Truck Drivin' Man'
Almost play that 'Truck Drivin' Man'
Come on and play that 'Truck Drivin' Man'
