Old Charlie Rhodes, Charlie Rhodes
Old Charlie Rhodes, Charlie Rhodes

I came across a man, with a stick shift in his hand
He’s been drivin' all night and day, on this endless seeming highway
I ask him how he’s been, he felt obliged to let me in
He said, Kid, do me a favor, don’t end your life before it begins
You can be what you want to be, don’t make the same mistakes as me
Your life’s more than your occupation, so wont you listen to my narration, and he said

I’ve been out on the road for so long,
The path I’ve taken, never seemed so wrong
When I was young I got trapped in a maze,
And I’ll be paying for it for the rest of my days

So I asked him what he really wanted, from his life
He replied, beautiful children, and a beautiful wife.
But my marriage is in trouble, and my time is runnin' out,
And I’ll never, never ever get off this same old trucker’s route, and he said
