  • [Chorus]
    Big wheel, don't you roll
    Big diesel, don't you whine
    Through the night as I'm runnin' down the road
    Big semi, don't you stop, 'cause if you do I'm not
    Gonna make it back to Baltimore with my load

    Well, the truckstop's warm and friendly
    And the coffee keeps me up
    And the waitress there would like to waste my time
    But I'll have to pass it by
    As it's down the road I fly
    Just a racin' with that pocket watch of mine


    Smoke a-puffin', tires a hummin'
    Burnin' up the road
    Countin' road signs and the miles to Baltimore
    One eye out for weighin' stations
    One for radar traps
    They can't stop me, 'cause my plans don't call for that Writer/s: JAMES CROCE
