Leaving It All Behind
Dick Curless

Drivin' down the road from New Mexico I think I's headed down 66
I got a heart full of woman and six pack to go sittin' next to me on seat
Way back behind me was a pretty little women of blessed the ties that bind
She had me in a knoose but I finally broke loose
And I'm leavin' it all behind leavin' it all behind

ICC is a checkin' on me but I think I can make it thru
With eight forward gears and an over-drive ain't nothin' much that I can do
Turn up the radio turn down the heat and hear them big wheels whine
Easy and free they're a carrying me and I'm leavin' it all behind leavin' it all behind

Thinkin' back on it you know she wasn't half bad
And I'll always remember the good times that we had
But to understand a truck drivin' man you gotta know how he thinks
The only thing he loves is a runnin' the road and stop somewhere for a drink
So all you women before you fall for a man who's the movin' kind
Keep prepared to lose when it looks to you
Like he's leavin' it all behind leavin' it all behind
