    I remember when i was a young boy back in very early eighties, being a trucker was one of the ultimate dreams for what you wanted to be when you grew up. Like policemen or firemen and such.

    Great thread, great stuff.

    Truck Drivin Man. Did this in the 1st real band I was ever in. Around 1976 I guess. Maybe 77...



    We also did, in that band, Lookin at the World through a Winshield, Mama Hated Diesels, and Hot Rod Lincoln.

    Did this one too.
