  1. A Trucker's Bride

From the recording The Red Road

In cart Not available Out of stock

Those long summer days in the diner
Got hotter when you came walking in
I poured you a hot cup of coffee
Kept your mug filled up to the brim

Daddy said to stay away from Truckers
But Mama married one anyway
I stared in your eyes while dreaming
Of kissing you on our wedding day
CHORUS

I was a Trucker’s Bride
Filled with pride and longing
Wonderin’ where your rig was down the road
A Trucker’s Bride
Arms open wide and waitin’
For my lovin’ man
To come back home


Some men love the freedom of the highway
You’ll never hear them say the words “I do”
Honey, you weren’t one of those drivers
To your rig and me you’re always true
Every time you come home from hauling
We hug and kiss and jump right into bed
Though I spend many nights alone, dear
I’m so glad we took the plunge and wed


CHORUS

I was a Trucker’s Bride
Filled with pride and longing
Wonderin’ where your rig was down the road
A Trucker’s Bride
Arms open wide and waitin’
For my lovin’ man
To come back home
Coming home
