Hell Yeah

Talking Yeah Breaker one9, this here's the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me Big Ben, c'mon?

I know somebody already mentioned this but it is probably my favorite Truckin' song from back in the day. My Dad FLOGGED it when he was home!
I even remember we had a convoy and blockade here in April 1979 (when I was a kid) that involved thousands of truckies and shut down our major supply route and most of the country for 9 days and I'm sure this song provided the inspiration if not the motivation. It was the CB that did it! Hundreds of truckers on CB.


YouTube - Convoy - C. W. McCall (1975)


And this is my other favorite truckin song and one that always reminds me of my Dad. Probably nobody's heard it but whenever I hear it I always think of him and all the blokes we've had the pleasure of knowing over the years. Blokes that would give you the shirt of their back. So this one is for my Dad, and all the truckies, including those we've lost. May they always be chasing southern lights in the distant sky.

Truckies carry this country.

We've got a crossroads here of interstates and rural routes. So, the city handles truck and train traffic, and everyone seems to come through here. At one time, we had four truckstops, and I waitressed at three of them throughout the years, the first time to make money to go back to college then later when I couldn't find a job with my degree. Think Reaganomics.

So, here are some that come to mind:
C.W. McCall is great! BTW: I was waitressing during the "Convoy"-described events. Very interesting times those were.

Two jukebox favorites back then...

P.S. I even fueled semis one night when they were trying to find out if women could handle the job. I didn't work out, but~doggoneit!~I'm only 5'1" and wasn't built for clambering up on trucks! AND, they left me all alone out there, obviously not wanting (in Seventies) to admit that the job could be done. I told them to keep trying, that there were many females who COULD handle the job with no problem. When I went back to waitressing years later, there were a number of lady truckers! So, no doubt, there were women out there handling fueling and rapping tires.

Pretty much anything I post.

Part of my job is driving a company truck around.



I'll post this, though nearly all of what I post will be hits.
