Story Behind the Song

An over the road trucker comes up againt the devil... and wins.

Lyrics

DEMON TRUCK

FOUR HUNDRED HORSES PULLIN' AND A HEAVY LOAD IN BACK, THE ROAD SEEMS STRANGELY QUIET AND THE NIGHT IS DEATHLY BLACK.
I SEE ANOTHER TRUCKER'S LIGHTS COMIN' UP BEHIND BUT IT'S A NARROW WINDIN' STRETCH OF ROAD AND I DON'T PAY IT ANY MIND.

HE'S GAININ' FAST AND SO I SHIFT INTO A HIGHER GEAR, I DOUBLE CHECK MY RUNNIN' LIGHTS TO LET HIM KNOW I'M HERE.
BUT HE KEEPS GETTIN' CLOSER AND THERE AIN'T NO ROOM TO PASS, AND I'M THINKIN' THAT FOR ONE OF US, THIS NIGHT MIGHT BE THE LAST.

CHORUS; THERE'S A LEGEND OF A DEMON TRUCK THE DRIVERS LIKE TO TELL. THEY SAY THIS ONE YOU CAN'T OUTRUN, IT'LL DRIVE YOU STRAIGHT TO HELL.
BUT I AIN'T SCARED OF SATAN, I'M A DRIVIN' MAN YOU KNOW, AND I FIGURED I'D DIE BEHIND THIS WHEEL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.

HE MAKE HIS MOVE TO PASS ME AND I TURN TO TAKE A PEEK, BUT THERE'S NO ONE IN THAT CAB AT ALL, IT'S JUST AN EMPTY SEAT.
HE TRIES TO CUT IN FRONT OF ME BUT I DON'T GIVE HIM ANY SLACK. HE SEES THAT HE CAN'T BEAT ME AND I WATCH HIM FALLIN' BACK.

I NEVER SAW THAT DEMON TRUCK ANOTHER TIME YOU KNOW, AND I WAS HAULIN' FREIGHT ANOTHER TWENTY YEARS OR SO.
BUT IF I SHOULD EVER CROSS HIS PATH, I BET HE LET'S ME GO MY WAY. THIS TRUCKER GAVE OLD SATAN A DRIVIN' LESSON ON THAT DAY.

REPEAT CHORUS:
