Good Morning, Class of '64
Big Red Americana - Dave Barnhouse

Take My love

 Take my love along with you 
as down that road you go
It does no good at home with me, 
it's just for you alone
Thru days and nites of travel, 
take my love along with you
It's there to keep you safe 
and warm in everything you do.

Take my love along with you 
as down that road you go
To places that you've never been 
and "My Love" just always know
That I'm right there beside you
in ways that we can't see
I'm resting there next to your heart; 
my love to you from me.

Take my love along with you 
and always remember this
Very few people in all this world, 
ever find this kind of bliss
That only you and I could 
share in everything we do
So as you travel that long, long road, 
take my love along with you

Shoot, I kind of liked that, myself.

YouTube Comment:
I've been at it since the early
90's and still love it.
At times I feel like I have a GPS
stamped into my brain.
Been all over the place
over and over again.
And still love it.
I hate some things but can't
see doing anything else.
I'm a Trucker.
I don't think there's any real motivation 
for somebody to be a truck driver.
Mine was simple; 
Dad was a truck driver, 
I wanted to own one.
Lindsay Fox
I sometimes think it ironic for an 
truck driver, 
bus driver, etc... 
to find success writing children's novels.
Brian Jacques
When I got outta High School 
I was driving a truck. 
I was just a poor boy 
from Memphis, Tennessee.
Elvis Presley
I don't think I'm bad for people. 
If I did think I was bad for people, 
I would go back to driving a truck, 
and I really mean this.
Elvis Presley
 If an Englishman gets run down by 
a truck he apologizes to the truck.
