    One of the bands I'm in, The Riflemen, does country & western, tex-mex, trucker tunes, etc... Here's one we recently learned, man I love playing it. I think it's safe to say Junior Bown has heard this guy before ;)

    Cool, didn't know that one..
    When I was 11-12 years old I had a K-tel "Truck Drivin' Songs" Lp; about drove my parents crazy ;my other two LPs were Endless Summer, and Beatles VI so I had my bases covered. Lot's of good stuff but nothing beats "Wolf Creek Pass" (at least when you are 12) except maybe a '45 of Hot Rod Lincoln.

    Here's a personal favourite, some have called The Truckers Anthem...I'm a Teamster of nearly 30 years & it works for me!

    Hard to believe I'm the first to mention Six Days on the Road, but this thread has plenty of room to grow.

    [thank you for _not_ mentioning Convoy]

    Peace - Deeve

    Good, but it's gotta be Dave Dudley for that song. I remember my sister and me visiting some guy back in the mid-60's. His apartment was littered with truck driving records and ashtrays, Six Days on the Road was on repeat on the hi-fi, and he'd just pushed his mattress out the window because he'd fallen asleep with a cigarette.
