I've been playing this song since I was a kid and first learned to sing and play guitar. I first heard the Lynyrd Skynyrd version of the song and later the Merle Haggard version which I think is the best. I just love to play this song.

I have always want to truck, and still enjoy it, but the life always has taken me away from the time I could have spent with my family. I have been trucking for 37 years. At first I was just a driver, then ...
