I stopped at a roadhouse in Texas
A little place called Hamburger Dance
I heard that old jukebox playing
A song about a truck driving man

Pour me another cup of coffee
For it is the best in the land
I put a nickel in the jukebox
And play that truck driving man

The waitress just brought me some coffee
I thanked her but called her again
I said that old song sure does hit me
'Cause I'm a truck driving man

Pour me another cup of coffee
For it is the best in the land
I put a nickel in the jukebox
And play that truck driving man

I climbed back aboard my old semi
And then like a flash I was gone
I got that old truck wheels rollin'
I'm on my way to San Antone

Pour me another cup of coffee
For it is the best in the land
I put a nickel in the jukebox
And play that truck driving man
And play that truck driving man
