Song Lyrics:
Yeah on my two week holiday out of my rig and on the way
Me and the wife and the little boy with the hammer down to Illinois
Had a good front door lookin' out for bear I was doin' about eighty in the rockin' chair
Just settled down to run with the pack when I felt a finger punch my back

Dad I gotta go Dad I gotta go
So I leave the convoy to take my boy to the nearest Texaco
Thelma Jean I wish you wouldn't give that boy so much pop
I just found a good bunch of buddies to run with
Darn it's gonna take me an hour to get back to 'em
Come on son no you can't have no glow in the dark T-shirt

Back on the road with the hammer down tryin to watch for any bears around
Callin' wall to wall on my CB break 1-9 for your Tennessee plea
Well it took me an hour to catch up for sure but then I heard the right 10-4
I was back with my pack and a runnin' fine when I heard that weak bladdered boy of mine

Dad I gotta go Dad I gotta go
So I leave the convoy to take my boy to the nearest Texaco
When we get to the home 20 we gonna have his kidney's checked
That comes from your side of the family
Oh hush now your mother's the same way
Come on son no you can't have no battery operated firecrackers

Break 1-9 for your Tennessee plea how 'bout ya shotgun you readin' me
You got the Mean Machine back on the road I wish this four wheeler had a built in commode
No come back they was gone for sure but I found me another front and back door
About the time we got the hammer down my boy leaned over with a terrible frown

Dad I gotta go Dad I gotta go
There goes another convoy while I take my boy to the nearest Texaco
Now Thelma Jean this is downright silly
If I lose this pack to run with we ain't never gonna get to Illinois
Come on son no you can't have no genuine shrunk coconut ubangya head

Break 1-9 for your beaver teaser come on back if you're up there please sir
Well he come back faint with noise I put the hammer down to get with them boys
I was so busy waitin' for another breaker I flew right past the picture taker
He said pull it over boy nice and slow I said Bear I'll meet ya at the next Texaco
Cause I gotta go I gotta go
I got the cramps there go my green stamps oh mercy day and whoa

Back on the road after postin' bail
Doin' double nickels on the Illinois trail
Turn off the CB and on the stereo
Now that I'm takin' it nice and slow
Nobody wants to go
