    G        Em7              G    Em7

    Trucker gears his engine down

             G        Em7                  G     Em7

    Says, "Climb on up, son, I'm highway-bound"

    Dsus4 (1)                  Cadd9 (1)

    Dashboard picture of a pretty girl

         Dsus4 (1)                 Cadd9 (1)

    I'm ridin' high on top of the world

    Wants to show a kid just what this thing'll do

               Dsus4 (1)                   Cadd9 (1)
