By the time we got into Tulsa-town We had 85 trucks in all But they's a roadblock up on the cloverleaf And them bears 's wall-to-wall Yeah, them smokeys as thick as bugs on a bumper They even had a bear in the air I says "Callin' all trucks, this here's the Duck We about to go a-huntin' bear" 'Cause we got a great big convoy rockin' thru the night Yeah, we got a great big convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight Come on and join our convoy, ain't nothin' gonna get in our way We gonna roll this truckin' convoy 'cross the USA Convoy
Ah, you wanna give me a ten-nine on that, Pigpen? Negatory, Pigpen, you're still too close. Yeah, them hogs is startin' to close up my sinuses. Mercy sakes, you better back off another ten
Well, we rolled up Interstate Forty-Four Like a rocket-sled on rails We tore up all of our swindle sheets And left 'em settin' on the scales By the time we hit that Chi-town Them bears was a-gettin' smart They brought up some reinforcements From the Illinois National Guard There's armored cars and tanks and jeeps 'N' rigs of every size Yeah, them chicken coops was full of bears And choppers filled the skies Well, we shot the line, we went for broke With a thousand screamin' trucks And eleven long-haired friends of Jesus In a chartreuse microbus
Ah, Rubber Duck, this is Sodbuster. C'mon here. Yeah, ten-four, Sodbuster. Listen, ya wanna put that microbus in behind that suicide-jockey? Yeah, he's haulin' dynamite and he needs all the help he can get.
Well, we laid a strip for the Jersey Shore Prepared to cross the line I could see the bridge was lined with bears But I didn't have a doggone dime I says "Pigpen, this here's the Rubber Duck We just ain't a-gonna pay no toll" So we crashed the gate doin' ninety-eight I says, "Let them truckers roll, ten-four" 'Cause we got a mighty convoy rockin' thru the night Yeah, we got a mighty convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight Come on and join our convoy, ain't nothin' gonna get in our way We gonna roll this truckin' convoy 'cross the USA Convoy
Ah, ten-four, Pigpen. What's your twenty? OMAHA? Well, they oughta know what to do with them hogs out there, for sure. Well, mercy sakes, good buddy, we gonna back on outa here, so keep the bugs off your glass and the bears off your... tail. We'll catch you on the flip-flop. This here's the Rubber Duck on the side. We gone, 'bye, 'bye.
