I'm drivin' eighteen wheels, I've got nerves of steel
I've got my honey; she's by my side.
We've got a double bed, a camp stove, and a head
why, it makes for a pretty fine ride.
I'm Arizona born, I'm California bred
I broke my nut on a quarter-ton truck
and I just scraped by Pasadena High
where I graduated with luck.
Now the open road is educating me
it's the people I meet that I find
some dreams are bittersweet,
some dreams are incomplete
but truckin's a state of mind,
but truckin's a state of mind
