OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I stopped at a little road house in Texas
A little place called Hamburger Dan
I heard that ole juke box start a playing
A song about a truck driving man

4 ladies chain across the ring go
You turn and chain 'em right back home again, promenade
Now, put another nickle in the juke box
And play that Truck Driving Man


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

The heads promenade and go just halfway
Come down the middle and square thru 4 hands
4 hands and then do a right & left thru my friend
Then eight chain 2 across the floor
Both hands, single circle make an ocean wave
Just scoot back and swing the corner lady, promenade
Now, put another nickle in the juke box
And play that Truck Driving Man


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

All 4 ladies chain about 3/4 round
You turn the girl and circle left and then
4 ladies roll away, 1/2 sashay and circle left
Allemande left and then weave around the ring
I hear that ole juke box start a playing
Dosado and promenade 'em home
Now, put another nickle in the juke box
And play that Truck Driving Man


TAG

Swing with that truck driving man

Truck Driving Man
 
 

I wheeled into a truckstop in Texas
A little place called Hamburger Dan's
I heard that jukebox a playin'
A song about a truck drivin' man

That waitress done brought me some coffee
I thanked her, then called her back again
I said you know that song, it sure does fit me
Cause I'm a truck drivin' man

Pour me another cup of coffee
For it is the best in the land
I'll put another quarter in the jukebox
And play that Truck Drivin' Man

Well I climbed back aboard my old semi
Then like a flash I was gone
I got them old truck wheels a rollin'
Now I'm on my way to San Antone

When I get my call up to glory
They'll take me away from this land
I'll head this old rig up to heaven
Cause I'm a truck drivin' man

Pour me another cup of coffee...
And play the Truck Drivin' Man

Lyrics by Terry Fell.
Recorded by Glen Campbell.
