D                   
A hundred cups of coffee, five hundred cigarettes.
                                                    
A thousand miles of highway, and I ain't forgot her yet,
              G
But I keep on movin'.
                       D
I keep movin' down the line.

There ain't nothing in my mirror, just a cloud of dust and smoke.
                                                         G
What do you expect when some old trucker's heart gets broke?
                          D
Yeah, truckers hearts get broke.
         A                    
But them big wheels of rubber gonna rub her off my mind,
     G                                               D
Well I'm a highway junkie, and I need that old white line.


D
Ten miles outta Nashville, I was doin' a hundred and one,
                                                      G
State boy pulled me over he said, "Where's the fire son?"
                       D
Said, where's the fire son?
         
I said, "Man there ain't no fire, I'm just runnin' from a flame,
                                                           G
So go on, write your ticket man, but I ain't the one to blame."
                                  D
That county judge tried to rob me blind.
         A                 
But them big wheels of rubber gonna rub her off my mind,
     G                                              D
Well I'm a highway junkie and I need that old white line.

INSTRUMENTAL


D
So I rolled on down to Memphis, I had nothing left to lose,
                                                              G
I wanted to hear some rock n' roll but all they played was blues.
                       D
I didn't wanna hear no blues.

So I went to call up Elvis, but Roger Miller grabbed the phone,
                                                            G
He said "Drop that 18 wheeler boy, you're the king of the road."
                            D
Said, I was the king of the road.
         A                   
But them big wheels of rubber gonna rub her off my mind,
     G                                              D
Well I'm a highway junkie and I need that old white line.
     A                               G                   D
Said I'm a highway junkie man, and I need that old white line.
