I love a man with 18 wheels
Seventy feet of polished steel
Baby makes his livin' on the road
Well he just called from Baton Rouge
One more stop and he'll be through
Then he's mine until it's time to roll
Well his home away from home
Is in the house that Peter built
Oh I love a man with 18 wheels
I love a man with 18 wheels

Hmmm. I'd have to hear it.

My two top truck-driving songs: "Willin'" and "Phantom 309" (Tom Waits version).

I admit I have to think hard about whether I know any other truck-driving songs.

Oh, nice picture, by the way. And I should specify that the Lowell George/Little Feat version of "Willin'" is the preferred one.

You realize the guys who drive the fuel trucks get paid extra for hazardous duty? And that's Wolff with two effs, as in "Philadelphia."

Dan, I was trying to spare us all, but you forced my hand. Convoy. Good buddy.

Kem, Thank you. I think. ;)
