Tombstone Every Mile

Song Author Dan Fulkerson Performer: Dick Curless Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]All you big and burly men who roll the trucks along
Better listen you'll be thankful when you [D7]hear my song
You have [G]really got it made if you're [C]hauling goods
[G]Anyplace on earth but those [D7]Haynesville [G]Woods

It's a stretch of road up [C]north in Maine
That's [G]never ever ever seen a [D7]smile
If they'd [G]buried all the truckers [C]lost in them woods
There'd be a [G]tombstone [D7]every [G]mile
Count 'em [C]off there'd be a [G]tomb-stone [D7]every [G]mile

When you're loaded with potatoes and you're headed down
You've gotta drive the woods to get to [D7]Boston town
When it's [G]winter up in Maine better [C]check it over twice
That [G]Haynesville road is just a [D7]ribbon of [G]ice  

It's a stretch of road up [C]north in Maine
That's [G]never ever ever seen a [D7]smile
If they'd [G]buried all the truckers [C]lost in them woods
There'd be a [G]tombstone [D7]every [G]mile
Count 'em [C]off there'd be a [G]tomb-stone [D7]every [G]mile

When you're talking to a trucker that's been hauling goods
Down that stretch of road in Maine they call the [D7]Haynesville Woods
He'll tell [G]you that dying and going [C]down below
Won't be [G]half as bad as driving on that [D7]road of ice and [G]snow

It's a stretch of road up [C]north in Maine
That's [G]never ever ever seen a [D7]smile
If they'd [G]buried all the truckers [C]lost in them woods
There'd be a [G]tombstone [D7]every [G]mile
Count 'em [C]off there'd be a [G]tomb-stone [D7]every [G]mile


All you big and burly men who roll the trucks along
Better listen you'll be thankful when you hear my song
You have really got it made if you're hauling goods
Anyplace on earth but those Haynesville Woods

It's a stretch of road up north in Maine
That's never ever ever seen a smile
If they'd buried all the truckers lost in them woods
There'd be a tombstone every mile
Count 'em off there'd be a tomb-stone every mile

When you're loaded with potatoes and you're headed down
You've gotta drive the woods to get to Boston town
When it's winter up in Maine better check it over twice
That Haynesville road is just a ribbon of ice

It's a stretch of road up north in Maine
That's never ever ever seen a smile
If they'd buried all the truckers lost in them woods
There'd be a tombstone every mile
Count 'em off there'd be a tomb-stone every mile

When you're talking to a trucker that's been hauling goods
Down that stretch of road in Maine they call the Haynesville Woods
He'll tell you that dying and going down below
Won't be half as bad as driving on that road of ice and snow

It's a stretch of road up north in Maine
That's never ever ever seen a smile
If they'd buried all the truckers lost in them woods
There'd be a tombstone every mile
Count 'em off there'd be a tomb-stone every mile
