ABOUT A TRUCKER'S WIDOW

Patty sings her peppy tribute to a fallen trucker -- the husband of Verna Yahola. In an early draft of "The Red Road," Loretta, the disgruntled, science-fiction crazed teenager bemoaned, "Country music is weird. They make death sound like a hoedown!" This song is in that vein -- and was originally written as an answer song to BR549's trucker opus "18 Wheels and a Crowbar."

A moment etched in memory
The day that took my man from me
They say he went crazy -- I don't know
I stand before you
A Trucker's Widow

Twenty-one days on the road
Won't leave you with a pot of gold
Tried to make him stop -- he said no
I stand before you
A Trucker's Widow

Gone before I said goodbye
Down that lonesome road

Eighteen wheels that have no soul
I stand before you
A Trucker's Widow

Gone before I said goodbye
Down that lonesome road

Eighteen wheels that have no soul
I stand before you
A Trucker's Widow
A Trucker's Widow
