Freightline Fever Lyrics

Boxcar Willie
I drive a big freightliner an' i made my last payment today.
an' i drive to all points outta new york city to la.
well, that little woman smiles when i believe her
i'll soon be back, i got the fever,
she's a believer.
i got the freightliner fever.
Now there's a railroad a-runnin' by a highway out in santa fe.
an' i passed an old freight train makin' his run the other day.
merle haggard said to his fireman, so pale:
we're gonna blow the freight train off of the rails.
he got the fever.
he got the freightliner fever.
Well, pierce that box, what you carryin' in that cigarette pack?
i said: "i got my second driver an' he's gonna drive her all the way back."
it's a big black pill, so round an' round.
the driver's call it west coast turnaround.
it's for the fever.
the ol' freightliner fever.
Instrumental break.
Well, i passed red sovine in the wiggling, west virginia.
an' i passed del reeves in shreeveport, louisianna.
dick curtis got hung up on a hill in maine,
i pulled him over with my forty-foot chain.
he got the fever,
he got the freightliner fever.
I mean i passed everything from a jimmy to a greyhound bus.
i'm gonna spend a few days on the coast at the end of my run.
old giddy-up, go an' a little bit of luck,
gonna pass red simpson and his runaway truck,
he got the fever,
he got the freightliner fever.
Well, pierce that box, what you carryin' in that cigarette pack?
i said: "i got my second driver an' he's gonna drive her all the way back."
it's a big black pill, so long an' so round.
to a driver, it's a west coast turnaround.
it's for the fever.
that ol' freightliner fever.
Yeah, i pass 'em all out here on these old roads,
all them ol' country boys.
there's kenny rogers an' charley pride.
mel tillis, moe bandy.
mickey gilly, boxcar willie.
porter wagoner, johnny russell.
eatin' up the freeway.
bill anderson.
wow, there goes dolly:
got two buses.
boy, i'd like to be her driver.
To fade.
