        C
All you big and burly men who roll the trucks along
       C                                   G
Better listen, you'll be thankful when you hear my song
         C                             F 
You have really got it made, if you're haulin' goods
C                           G           C
Anyplace on earth but those Hainesville Woods


Chorus:
       C                  F  
It's a stretch of road up north in Maine
       C                        G 
That's never, ever, ever seen a smile
        C                       F
If they buried all the truckers lost in them Woods
             C         G     C   
There'd be a tombstone every mile
          F                 C         G     C
Count 'em off, there'd be a tombstone every mile


When you're loaded with potatoes and you're headed down
You've gotta drive the Woods to get to Boston town
When it's winter up in Maine, better check it over twice
That Hainesville road is just a ribbon of ice

Chorus

When you're talkin' to a trucker that's been haulin' goods
Down that stretch of road in Maine they call the Hainesville Woods
He'll tell you that dying and goin' down below
Won't be half as bad as driving on that road of ice and snow
