letra de trucker speed – fred eaglesmith

i got her letter in an old mail box
i forgot i had at a little truck stop
and i read it once and then i read it again
i could hardly keep from cryin’

i’ve been drivin’ around the last week or so
with an empty truck, i don’t have a load
and i don’t care cause to tell you the truth
i think i might be dying

and it’s trucker speed, benzedrine
percocets, amphetamines
black beauties and west coast turnarounds
when the coast is clear i drive with my knees
i mix it all up like a recipe
coca-cola and coffee to wash it down
sometimes i feel like my wheels ain’t touchin’ 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

and it’s trucker speed, benzedrine
percocets, amphetamines
black beauties and west coast turnarounds
when the coast is clear i drive with my knees
i mix it all up like a recipe
coca-cola and coffee to wash it down
sometimes i feel like my wheels ain’t touchin’ the ground

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 williams
look like a party of five
i’ve been beat up, broke down
loaded on a truck and driven into 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

and it’s trucker speed, benzedrine
percocets, amphetamines
black beauties and west coast turnarounds
when the coast is clear i drive with my knees
i mix it all up in a recipe
coca-cola and coffee to wash it down
sometimes i feel like my wheels ain’t touchin’ the ground
sometimes i feel like my wheels ain’t touchin’ the ground
sometimes i feel like my wheels ain’t touchin’ the ground
