Convoy...

(C.W. McCall, B. Fries, C. Davis)

[On the CB]
Ah, breaker one-nine, this here's the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me, Pig Pen, c'mon? Ah, yeah, 10-4, Pig Pen, fer shure, fer shure. By golly, it's clean clear to Flag Town, c'mon. Yeah, that's a big 10-4 there, Pig Pen, yeah, we definitely got the front door, good buddy. Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy...

Was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June
In a Kenworth pullin' logs
Cab-over Pete with a reefer on
And a Jimmy haulin' hogs
We is headin' for bear on I-one-oh
'Bout a mile outta Shaky Town
I says, "Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Duck.
"And I'm about to put the hammer down."

[Chorus]
'Cause we got a little convoy
Rockin' through the night.
Yeah, we got a little 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 U-S-A.
Convoy!


[On the CB]
Ah, breaker, Pig Pen, this here's the Duck. And, you wanna back off them hogs? Yeah, 10-4, 'bout five mile or so. Ten, roger. Them hogs is gettin' in-tense up here.

By the time we got into Tulsa Town,
We had eighty-five trucks in all.
But they's a roadblock up on the cloverleaf,
And them bears was wall-to-wall.
Yeah, them smokies is 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."

[Chorus]
'Cause we got a great big convoy
Rockin' through 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 U-S-A.
Convoy!


[On the CB]
Ah, you wanna give me a 10-9 on that, Pig Pen? Negatory, Pig Pen; 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 44
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'd brought up some reinforcements
From the Illinois National Guard.
There's armored cars, and tanks, and jeeps,
And rigs of ev'ry size.
Yeah, them chicken coops was full'a bears
And choppers filled the skies.
Well, we shot the line and we went for broke
With a thousand screamin' trucks
An' eleven long-haired Friends a' Jesus
In a chartreuse micra-bus.


[On the CB]
Ah, Rubber Duck to Sodbuster, come over. Yeah, 10-4, Sodbuster? Lissen, you wanna put that micra-bus 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
And prepared to cross the line
I could see the bridge was lined with bears
But I didn't have a dog-goned dime.
I says, "Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Duck.
"We just ain't a-gonna pay no toll."
So we crashed the gate doing ninety-eight
I says "Let them truckers roll, 10-4."

[Chorus]
'Cause we got a mighty convoy
Rockin' through 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 U-S-A.


Convoy! Ah, 10-4, Pig Pen, what's your twenty?
Convoy! OMAHA? Well, they oughta know what to do with them hogs out there fer shure. Well, mercy
Convoy! sakes, good buddy, we gonna back on outta here, so keep the bugs off your glass and the bears off your...
Convoy! tail. We'll catch you on the flip-flop. This here's the Rubber Duck on the side.
Convoy! We gone. 'Bye,'bye.

(Sorry, can't find a better photo at the mom)



Damn, I never even knew this song existed until jdc referenced it just now:
  • 455 Rocket
    (written by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings)

    Mr. Smith had an Oldsmobile
    Baby blue with wire wheels
    I took her home the day she was advertised
    He said she leaks when it would rain
    Sounded like an aeroplane
    But I knew she was a jewel in disguise
  • She had a 455 Rocket
    The biggest block alive
    I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
    She was made for the straight-a-ways
    She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
    She's a Rocket.....she was made to burn
  • Well, whose junk pile piece of Chevelle is this?
    Did you boys come here to race or just kiss?
    Hmmm, now don't you wanna know
    What I got underneath my hood?
    I know she might sound like she's missing
    But, buddy she can teach you a lesson
    In just a quarter mile and I'll smoke you good
  • In my 455 Rocket.....the kind the police drive
    I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
    She was made for the straight-a-ways
    She grew up hating Chevrolets
    She's a Rocket.....she was made to burn
  • I'm tellin you and I ain't ashamed
    I cried when that wrecker came
    As we skid I thought I heard the angels sing
    Sounded like the Beach Boys
    We hit the curb then began to sail
    Took out most of the safety rail
    Even the cop asked me,
    "Man, what'd you have in that thing?"
  • I had a 455 Rocket
    The very kind you drive
    You wanna watch yourself when you take that turn
    She was made for the straight-a-ways
    She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
    She's a Rocket.....she was made to burn, burn
  • 'Cause, she's a Rocket.....
    She was made to burn

Is your Java fairly up to date?

convoy

3:52 for my first try but I knew what the picture was. Using any of the menu choices is cheating.

Is there any significance to your CB license? It's a little close to home, for me.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Of all the cars I have owned, the 72 Formula Firebird that I stuck an Olds 98 455 drive train was without a doubt the most animal beast I ever owned. No fancy internals, just the auto drive train, a cut drive shaft and a set of headers, and I was eating everything on the road.

Yeah that thing 'hauled' upto about 100mph then its less than aerodynamic profile and bulk started to prevail. It went round corners pretty well on its cargo springs and uprated shocks too!

I used to like its trick of spinning up the rears from a standing start but only moving forward about a foot. Talk about getting the boulevard jaywalkers to stop sauntering across the street. I had so much fun in that thing. Kept it for years. That and my Porsche were my two favourite cars ever.
