  • Lyrics
  • Twelve gauge, old Ford, buckshot floorboard, don't ask
    Fence post, door dent, let's just leave it at that
    It's got dirt on me, yeah I'd be up a tree

    If my truck could talk, I'd have to yank out all the wires
    Pour on the gas, set it on fire, anything to shut it up
    It's been good to me but it knows too much, he'd sing it all
    I'd have to find a riverbank and roll it off
    If my truck could talk

    Those two headlights, looked in her eyes, how she danced
    Moonlit truck bed, two kids, enough said, yeah man
    All that went on, goes all night long
    It could go on and on and on

    If my truck could talk, I'd have to yank out all the wires
    Pour on the gas, set it on fire, anything to shut it up
    It's been good to me but it knows too much, he'd sing it all
    I'd have to find a riverbank and roll it off
    If my truck could talk

    If my truck could talk I couldn't deny a word it said
    I'd just smile and shake my head, yeah

    It's been good to me but it knows too much, he'd sing it all
    I'd have to find a riverbank and roll it off
    If my truck could talk, if my truck could talk
    If my truck could talkWriter/s: WENDELL MOBLEY, NEIL THRASHER, ANDR PATES
