Fred Eaglesmith - Truckers Speed

 G                     D
I got her letter in an old mail box 
I forgot at I had at a little truck stop
      G                D
And I read it once and read it again
I could hardly keep from cryin

I've been driving around the last week or so
With and empty truck I don't have a load
I don't care cause to tell you the truth
I think I might be dyinstyle='font-size:1px;color:#ffffff;'>
         G              D   
And it's trucker speed, benzedrine
Percocets and amphetamines
G                 D                C
Black beautys and west coast turn arounds
G                         D
When the coast is clear I drive with my knees
I mix it all up like a recipie
G              D                C
Coca-cola and coffee to wash it down
G                         D                         C     
Sometimes I feel like my wheels ain't touching the ground

At the side of the road he said you're a mess
When I told him she didn't leave an address
Then he got another call said wait right here 
I'll be back in a little while
I put my head across my arms
Slept on the wheel for an hour or more
And I started it up and took off into the night


I've been high-centered, low throttle
When I couldn't stop I peed in a bottle
I've been so lonesome I made hank willaims
Look like a party of five
I've been beat up broke down
Load it on a truck and drive it to town
I always thought she'd be there at the end of the line
I always thought she'd be there at the end of the line

Damn this guy is deep. Found him on WWHP out of Farmer City, Illinois. A great station which isn't top 40, it's very ecclectic. If you enjoy Fred you ought to go to their website. Peace. Steve

I'm from northern Illinois, I did some work down there 10 years ago or so. I loved that station.

Been listening to Fred for quite some many years. I cannot believe how unknown he remains with this kind of talent. If you ever get the chance to see him, go. I would say he's worth driving 2 hours or so to see. Much better live than most of the videos that are out there, as they give no justice to his sound.
