Song Description

a long haul truck driver has been away from home and is pushing it to get home to the woman he misses.

Story Behind the Song

I viewed rare double sundogs in the the sky driving home from Kansas City on I-70 one evening last winter....

Broadjam Member Reviews

like the drum simple entry, guitar work is back there, then shows up nicely in the break.

None to give.

Eighteen wheels driving hard tonight
Sundogs setting in the Kansas sky
Left KC at quarter to five
Pushing this rig, keeping things tight
It'll be five hours til I get to you
GPS says twelve-twenty-two
Thank you God, I'll be getting there soon
Ain't no guessing what we're going to do

Drivin' hard tonight
Highway's been a little lonely
Driving Hard Tonight
Got my woman waiting for me
Drivin' hard tonight
To get to you, you, you

Cruising I-70 doing eighty-five
Last mile marker said I'm making good time
Pushing this rig right down the road
Driving desire to take me on home
Gas pedal buried, got a grip on the wheel
I'm holding back 40 tons of steel
Been ten days that I've been away
Be ready baby, I'm coming your way


(repeat Chorus)
