Convoy
By C.W. McCall

LEGEND: 
(sung by background singers)

Cadd9 - x32030
C5    - x3x013

   Bb      C                                          Bb
It was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June in a Kenworth pullin' logs
F                                    C
Cab-over Pete with a reefer on and a Jimmy haulin' hogs
Bb   C                                      Bb
We's headin' for bear on Eye-one-oh 'Bout a mile outta Shakeytown
        F                                     C                           Bb
I says "Pigpen, this here's Rubber Duck" "And I'm about to put the hammer down"


Chorus 1:
        Ab                  Eb     Bb               Eb  
('Cause we got a little ole convoy rockin' thru the night)
       Ab                  Eb      Bb                    G
(Yeah, we got a little ol’ convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight?) 
Ab                    Eb            Bb                       Eb
(Come on and join our convoy, ain't nothin' gonna get in our way)
    Ab                       Eb       Bb         G
(We gonna roll this truckin' convoy 'cross the USA)
C5
(Convoy)

By the time we got into Tulsa-town we had 85 trucks in all
But they's a roadblock up on the cloverleaf and them bears 's wall-to-wall
Yeah, them smokeys 's thick as bugs on a bumper, they even had a bear in the air
I says "Callin' all trucks, this here's the Duck", "We about to go a-huntin' bear"

Chorus 2:
('Cause we got a great big convoy rockin' thru the night)
(Yeah, we got a great big convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight?)
(Come on and join our convoy, ain't nothin' gonna get in our way)
(We gonna roll this truckin' convoy 'cross the USA)
(Convoy)

Well, we rolled up Interstate Forty-Four like a rocket-sled on rails
We tore up all of our swindle sheets and left 'em settin' on the scales
By the time we hit that "Chi-town" them bears was a-gettin smart
They brought up some reinforcements from the "Illinoise" National Guard
There's armored cars and tanks and jeeps and rigs of ev'ry size
Yeah, them chicken coops was full of bears and choppers filled the skies
Well, we shot the line, we went for broke with a thousand screamin' trucks
And eleven long-haired friends of Jesus in a chartreuse microbus

Well, we laid a strip for the Jersey Shore, prepared to cross the line
I could see the bridge was lined with bears but I didn't have a doggone dime
I says "Pigpen, this here's the Rubber Duck", "We just ain't a-gonna pay no toll"
So we crashed the gate doin' ninety-eight, I says "let them truckers roll, ten-four"

Chorus 3:
('Cause we got a mighty convoy rockin' thru the night)
(Yeah, we got a mighty convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight?)
(Come on and join our convoy, ain't nothin' gonna get in our way)
(We gonna roll this truckin' convoy 'cross the USA)
(Convoy)

C                 Cadd9  C                  Cadd9  C                        Cadd9
Ah, ten-four, Pigpen.   What's your twenty?       OMAHA? Well, they oughta know 
     C                    Cadd9      C  
what to do with them hogs out there, for sure. Well, mercy's sakes, good buddy, 
         Cadd9               C                                       Cadd9
we gonna back on outta here, so keep the bugs off your glass and the bears 
    C                                    Cadd9      C
off your……..tail. We'll catch you on the flip-flop. This here's the Rubber Duck on 
          Cadd9           C
the side. We gone. 'bye, 'bye>

Great job on the tab! I would like to see more tabs from C.W. if anybody is willing, like "Four Wheel Drive" or "Wolf Creek Pass".
