(Earl Green - Carl Montgomery)

Well, I pulled outta Pittsburgh a rollin' down that Eastern Sea board
I got my diesel wound up and she's a runnin' like a never before
There's a speed zone ahead alright, well, I don't see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I'm a gonna make it home tonight.

I got me ten forward gears and my George overdrive
I'm takin' little white pills and my eyes are open wide
I just passed a Jimmy in white been passin' everything in sight
Six days on the road, I said, ''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 that sort of a guy
I could find one to hold me tight but I could never make believe it's alright
Six days on the road, I said, ''I'm a gonna make it home tonight.''

--- Instrumental ---

Well, the ICC is a checkin' on down the line
Well, I'm a little overweight and my log book's way behind
'Cause there's nothin' bothers me tonight I can dodge all the scales alright
Six days on the road, I said, ''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 my stack and that smoke's blowin' black as coal
Oh well, my hometown's a comin' in sight if you think I'm a happy you're right
Six days on the road, I said, ''I'm a gonna make it home tonight.''

Six days on the road, I said, ''I'm a gonna make it home tonight.''
Six days on the road, I said, ''I'm a gonna make it home tonight...''
This song is from the album "In Person [RCA Victor]".
