I'm a drivin' this truck for a mountain road I got a hot rod rig and I'm a flyin' low
My eyes're filled with diesel smoke air fan curves ain't no joke
Diesel smoke dangerous curves
I was out last night drinkin' beer with the guys
Got an achin' head and blood shot eyes
I ended up with a pretty little dame I didn't even know her name
Diesel smoke dangerous curves
If I deliver this hot shot plate I gotta get a goin' cause I'm runnin' late
These mountain grades are mighty steep can't stay away there ain't had no sleep
Diesel smoke dangerous curves
[ guitar ]
There's a cute little waitress at the bottom of the grades
She's got hot coffee already made
I gotta keep my eyes upon the road cause I'm goin' down the hill heavy load
Diesel smoke dangerous curves
Well I must have closed my eyes for a while casuse here I am and I'm a runnin' wild
I turn my brakes strip my gears gonna have to ride her down I fear
Diesel smoke dangerous curves
I wish I'd left the wind alone but it's too late now cause I think I'm gone
I got myself into this fix just because I drive to mix
Diesel smoke dangerous curves diesel smoke dangerous curves
