The sun's goin' down on me
Thoughts of her keep haunting me
Desperation's taking hold
My hands are on the steering wheel
But my heart's back in Louisville
At the far end of a thousand miles of road

My mind's grinding like a steel gear, baby
I've got to cover some ground
She know how hard and fast I'm falling for her
If she could just hear the sound
Of the hammer goin' down

Now I ain't gonna waste my time
Talkin' on no pay phone line
Words just don't get the message through
If this rig will hold out one more day
She'll hear me forty miles away
Tearing this four lane half in two

My mind is grinding like a steel gear, baby
I've got to cover some ground
She know how hard and fast I'm falling for her
If she could just hear the sound
Of the hammer goin' down

Now she ain't just a truck stop queen
She's like God to me
A thousand miles for her love
Well, I'd go a million for one kiss
Drive those pistons with my fist
And do it all again if it ain't enough

My mind's grinding like a steel gear, baby
I've got to cover some ground
She know how hard and fast I'm falling for her
If she could just hear the sound
Of the hammer goin' down

If she could hear the sound
Of the hammer goin' down
If she could hear the sound
Of the hammer goin'
Of the hammer goin' down
