Rolaids Doan's Pills and Preparation H

This song is by Dave Dudley and appears on the album King Of The Road (1981).

Some folks think this country moves on bands of steel
Some say it moves on 18 wheels
But if you really want to know what gets your goods from state to state
It's Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

Songs have been written 'bout us heroes of the road
How we go from Maine to Frisco with an extra heavy load
Our pockets full of rockets, hey let me set this story straight
We live on Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

Everybody thinks that lookin' through this windshield's really great
But my guts are blazin' fire and my back it always aches
My old donkey's just a smokin' setting 16 hours straight
Give me Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

Coffee in some truckstops is enough to kill a mule
Wish the gas in my stomach could be used for diesel fuel
An' I'm stuck to my seat when I reach the loadin' gate
An' I need Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

Everybody thinks that lookin' through this windshield's really great
But my guts are blazin' fire and my back it always aches
My old donkey's just a smokin' setting 16 hours straight
Give me Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

You think there's money in this truckin' life I lead
Let me tell ya brother, I spend lots on what I need
Registration, insurance, fines for being overweight
Plus my Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

Everybody thinks that lookin' through this windshield's really great
But my guts are blazin' fire and my back it always aches
My old donkey's just a smokin' setting 16 hours straight
Give me Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

Someday I'll sell this big ole rusty rig of mine
And open up a truckstop where all the trucks will wait in line
Green-stamps'll come rolling in and I'll be doing great
Sellin' Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H

Everybody thinks that lookin' through this windshield's really great
But my guts are blazin' fire and my back it always aches
My old donkey's just a smokin' setting 16 hours straight
Give me Rolaids, Doan's Pills and Preparation H
