The worn leather seats

The smell of the gasoline

Pumping into the huge tanks

Fueling America with every gallon

Hardened men

Ruddy faces, salt-and-pepper beards

Baseball caps, New York and LA

Faded denim jackets

Ash trays filled with Marlboro butts

Pictures of wives and kids

Stuck to sun-visors

Billowing in the breeze

A hundred miles behind

And a thousand miles to go

But it's okay, it's what they need

Just another week

Another paycheck

Another load
