Bad Mother Trucker

Play Video
  • She drove an '81 Peterbilt 18-wheeler
    Jet black with pink mud flaps
    It was a mean piece of metal with lightning in the pedal
    Thunder comin' out the back
    And them boys would chuckle when they saw her buckle
    Herself in the captain's seat
    But nobody was laughin' when she'd go to passin'
    Smilin' at them real sweet

    She is hell on wheels where the road meets the rubber
    A real gear jammer, a white line wonder
    Yeah, you only get one and I wouldn't want another
    'Cause mama was a bad mother trucker
    (Bad mother) bad
    (Bad mother)

    Yeah, she was a bread winner, ain't no stoppin' her
    Stayed shot out of a gun
    Had me at a truck stop, just north of 40
    In her cab on a flagstaff run
    I was raised on jerky from here to Albuquerque
    Went to school on her ol' CB
    She made a name for herself, taught me how to spell
    R-E-S-P-C-T

    She is hell on wheels where the road meets the rubber
    A real gear jammer, a white line wonder
    Yeah, you only get one and I wouldn't want another
    'Cause mama was a bad mother, bad mother, bad mother
    Bad mother trucker, baby (bad mother)
    (Bad mother)
    Bad
    (Bad mother)
    (Bad mother)

    That's bad

    She's the reason I rock, the reason I roll
    I make my livin' on this road
    The reason that smoke stays in the stack
    My gone don't wanna go back
    Bad mother, bad mother, bad mother, bad mother, bad mother
    Bad mother, bad mother, bad mother, bad mother
    Bad mother, bad mother, bad mother trucker, baby
    (Bad mother) bad mother trucker, baby
    (Bad mother) yeah, she's bad
    (Bad mother) she's a bad mother trucker
    (Bad mother) bad mother trucker, baby
    (Bad mother) she's a bad mother trucker, baby
    (Bad mother) she's my bad mother trucker, baby
    (Bad mother)
    (Bad mother)
    (Bad mother)
    (Bad mother)
    (Bad mother)
    (Bad mother) she's a bad mother trucker, baby
    (Bad mother) she's a bad mother trucker, baby
