    I mentioned Luke Doucet in another thread and that got me thinking of one of my favorite songs by him:



    Other favorite truck driver songs?

    That was a car, not a truck. Great tune all the same.

    More Frank Black songs



    If It Takes All Night - more of a touring song I guess.

    A Pure Denizen of the Citizens Band - more of a CB song or surviving on the road amongst the trucks

    Western Star - not sure what this is about exactly, lots of lingo, always reminds me trucks because James Western Star is a popular dealer name in Western Canada. Amazing sounding lyrics.

    Um Chugga Lugga - the demo for this song is very cool, and I’ve read it is amazing live. Not many euro truck driving songs, this is about roadside attractions. Always reminds me of a Cheech and Chong sketch.

    I hate to be disagreeable, but listen again...

    Big Mack gave up the white line, in fact he shut down 76, he put his big black semi up on blocks on a farm way out in the sticks...

    But just so’s we can still be friends how’s this one....
