Lyrics

Truckin’ all through the night can be lonely
Especially when you’re an Indian Okie
People stare at his long hair and braids
His ribbon shirt, his faded jeans and shades

He calls his rig “The Oklahoma Eagle”
Hauling loads, then working for the People
Sweetgrass, sage and family fill his head
He’ll live the Stomp Dance life until he’s dead


CHORUS
The Red Road fills his soul
And he can carry any load you need
You need
He’s an Indian loving life and liberty


He learned the trade from his daddy long ago
He’s not the only Indian on the road
Ponca friends are on CB right now
Let’s have ourselves a truckin’ pow-wow!

SPOKEN WORD
Ladies, your very own Merle Yahola, Jr. might
be out in the audience tonight
Maybe you haven’t met him yet, or maybe
you’ve been his wife for the past 35 years
Go on and give him a squeeze if he’s
right next to you
If he ain’t, give him a wink and invite him to the 49!

CHORUS
The Red Road fills his soul
And he can carry any load you need
You need
He’s an Indian loving life and liberty
He’s an Indian loving life and liberty
