    Lyrics

    Peterbilt drivers don't pick up low riders
    They don't slow for the curves in the road
    They hate to keep logs, they hate riders on hogs
    Watch out for a shift in your load

    When I was young, I had Gene Autry guns
    But I never had a Lionel train
    Now I've got a truck, if I keep payments up
    And it weighs thirty tons in the rain

    I wear Frisco jeans with riveted seams
    My money is chained to my belt
    I wear a Cat cap just like my pap
    He drove till it ruined his health

    Now, Georgia Bill Smith wore thick glasses and boots
    He could see 'bout as far as he could walk
    He came up too fast on that bridge overpass
    Lord, the preacher sure gave a fine talk

    When I was young, I had Gene Autry guns
    But I never had a Lionel train
    Now I've got a truck if I keep payments up
    And it weighs thirty tons in the rain

    I've read a few lines from the poets
    And sometimes, I might cross the line
    I don't know the answer to the mystery of life
    But a woman sure helps pass the time

    When I was young, I had Gene Autry guns
    But I never had a Lionel train
    Now I've got a truck if I keep payments up
    And it weighs thirty tons in the rain

    When I was young, I had Gene Autry guns
    But I never had a Lionel train
    Now I've got a truck if I keep payments up
    And it weighs thirty tons in the rain
