Bonnie Jean (Little Sister)
By David Lynn Jones


E                         A      E 
Peter built a truck for a man to drive
       E                         B         E
Itís a pretty good liviní but it ainít no life
      E                      A           E
For a farmerís daughter or a drunk manís wife
E                         B      A
Peter built a truck for a man to drive
E                         B      A    
Peter built a truck for a man to drive


Well little sister was just 17 
When she left the farm, virgin green
Moved up to Kansas City her school girl dream
But nothiní ever came easy for Bonnie Jean
Nothiní ever came easy for Bonnie Jean

Now she fell in love with a truck drivin man
They got married on a hard luck plan
Little babies are somethiní every good woman needs
So he left her with three hungry mouths to feed
He left her with three hungry mouths to feed


Chorus:
     A                      E
Now little sister rolls them eighteen wheels
    B                       E
She knows how that lonesome highway feels
          A                 E 
She got a heart of gold and nerves of steel
E                        B        E 
Little sister rolls them eighteen wheels
E                        B        E
Little sister rolls them eighteen wheels---here she comes now

Sax solo

Sheís a-runniní down the road from coast to coast
Itís the little things that she misses the most
Sheís a mother all day and a trucker all night
Liviní on coffee and mini-whites
Liviní on coffee and mini-whites

Now the egg donít fry and the bacon donít burn
Thereís another curve around every turn
Sheís in love with Kenny and Billy and Mac
Sheís lost on that highway and she ainít cominí back
Lost on that highway and she ainít cominí back
