Leland Jack

Leland Jack’s on his way back home finally

He’s been on the road driving rigs way too long,

and he’s gotten so weary,

He says “One last supper from a sack is about all that I can stand”

By 6 a. m. he’ll be eating homemade biscuits with his wife Diane, and it will be grand

Danny’s been on the road for a week, he stops off at a truck stop to park for a night & speak to his young son on a video chat & tell him where he’s been and where he’s at.

His son says excitedly:

“Daddy, Daddy, when are you coming home again”? Danny says, “I’ll be there soon, buddy. Give your mama a hug for me, & smile, it’s just a few more miles. They’ll go by fast, you’ll see.”

He drives a big rig, he’s done it most of his life

His headlights on the highway cutting through

the night like a Bowie knife

He’s probably got a million miles

under his belt, he’s worn out a lot of tires

He’s ready to call it quits

It’s time he soon retire

His wheels, they keep on turning

He’s headed back to the woman

who keeps 

his home fires burning
