INTRO:
(--quickly---)
[Am] [D7] [Am] [D7] [G] [Gb7] [F7] [E7] [E7add9]  
[Am]Well, you hate those diesels[D7] rollin'
[Am]And those Friday nights out bowlin'[D7]
[G]When he's off for a [Gb7]twelve [F7]hour l[E7]ay overnigh[E7add9]t
[Am]You wish you had a dollar[D7]
[Am]For every time he holler[D7]ed that he's
[G]Leaving and he's [Gb7]never [F7]comin' [E7]back[E7add9]
[Am]But the curtain laced below[D7]
[Am]And his hands on your pillow[D7]
And his[G] trousers are[Gb7] hang[F7]in' o[E7]n the chai[E7add9]r
[Am]You're lyin' through your pain, ba[D7]be
[Am]But you're gonna tell him he's you[D7]r man
And you [G]ain't got the[Gb7] coura[F7]ge to [E7]leave[E7add9]
[Am]He tells you that you're on his m[D7]ind
[Am]You're the only one he's ever gonna fi[D7]nd
It's [G]kind-a special,[Gb7] understa[F7]nds his [E7]complicated [E7add9]soul
[Am]But the only place a man can brea[D7]the
[Am]And collect his though[D7]ts is
[G]Midnight and [Gb7]flyin' [F7]away o[E7]n the [E7add9]road
[Am]But you've packed and unpacke[D7]d
[Am]So many times you've lost track[D7]
And the[G] steam heat is[Gb7] dripp[F7]in' o[E7]ff the wa[E7add9]lls
[Am]But when you hear his engines[D7]
[Am]You're lookin' through the window in[D7] the kitchen and you know
You're[G] always gonna[Gb7] be t[F7]here w[E7]hen he c[E7add9]alls
'Cause he's a[Am] truck drivin' [D7]man,
[Am]Stoppin' when he can[D7]
He's a[Am] truck drivin' man[D7], stop[Am]pin' when he can[D7]
[Am] [D7] [Am] [D7] [G] [Gb7] [F7] [E7]
