Big Wheel Cannonball

Song Author Vaughn Horton Performer: Dick Curless Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]This great and mighty nation will sing forever [F]more
Of the [G7]pioneers brave engineers and heroes by the [C]score
But the world of transportation has its own breed just as [F]great
It's the [G7]men of steel behind the wheels of the big rigs haulin' [G]freight

Listen to the rumble listen to the [F]roar
Of the [G7]big wheels on the highways from the mountains to the [C]shore
Ole Buffalo Bill and Casey Jones would never have the [F]gall
To [G7]risk their fate on the interstate on the Big Wheel Cannon[C]ball

There's a lotta speculation when the big wheels roll at [F]night
Some [G7]think their destination is a truck stop on the [C]right
With a little ole cat eyed waitress or a hot shot on the [F]make
But [G7]some I know would rather go for a hot chuck wagon [C]steak

Listen to the rumble listen to the [F]roar
Hear the [G7]jingle of the jukebox see the action on the [C]floor
Those giddy-up go-go babies do the monkey and the [F]crawl
When a [G7]swingin' combination plays the Big Wheel Cannon[C]ball

I try to keep my schedule the way most drivers [F]do  
It's [G7]food and drinks and forty winks and then go ballin' [C]through
But tonight I got a hang up she's the cutest little [F]doll
I'll [G7]see ya on the straight away on the Big Wheel Cannon[C]ball

On the Big Wheel Cannonball on the Big Wheel Cannon[F]ball
Tonight [G7]she's ridin' shotgun and I warn you one and [C]all  
When a devil from St Luie takes an angel on his [F]haul
Don't [G7]look for any halo round the Big Wheel Cannon[C]ball
Don't [G7]look for any halo round the Big Wheel Cannon[C]ball


This great and mighty nation will sing forever more
Of the pioneers brave engineers and heroes by the score
But the world of transportation has its own breed just as great
It's the men of steel behind the wheels of the big rigs haulin' freight

Listen to the rumble listen to the roar
Of the big wheels on the highways from the mountains to the shore
Ole Buffalo Bill and Casey Jones would never have the gall
To risk their fate on the interstate on the Big Wheel Cannonball

There's a lotta speculation when the big wheels roll at night
Some think their destination is a truck stop on the right
With a little ole cat eyed waitress or a hot shot on the make
But some I know would rather go for a hot chuck wagon steak

Listen to the rumble listen to the roar
Hear the jingle of the jukebox see the action on the floor
Those giddy-up go-go babies do the monkey and the crawl
When a swingin' combination plays the Big Wheel Cannonball

I try to keep my schedule the way most drivers do
It's food and drinks and forty winks and then go ballin' through
But tonight I got a hang up she's the cutest little doll
I'll see ya on the straight away on the Big Wheel Cannonball

On the Big Wheel Cannonball on the Big Wheel Cannonball
Tonight she's ridin' shotgun and I warn you one and all
When a devil from St Luie takes an angel on his haul
Don't look for any halo round the Big Wheel Cannonball
Don't look for any halo round the Big Wheel Cannonball
