Song of the Day: Convoy by C.W. McCall

If you were alive in the U.S. when this movie came out, you heard this song. It played on the radio a lot. My dad loved it!

Convoy

[CB radio chatter]
Yeah, breaker one-nine
This here’s the Rubber Duck
You got a copy on me Pig Pen, c’mon?
Uh, yeah, Ten-Four Pig Pen, fer sure, fer sure
By golly it’s clean clear to Flag Town, c’mon
Yeah, its a big Ten-Four there, Pig Pen
Yeah, we definitely got the front door, Good Buddy
Mercy sakes alive, looks like we’ve got us a convoy

[Verse 1 ]
It was the dark of the moon
On the sixth of June
In a Kenworth, pullin’ logs
Cabover Pete with a reefer on
And a Jimmy haulin’ hogs
We was headin’ for bear
On ‘I-1-0
‘Bout a mile out Shakey Town
I says, Pig Pen this here’s the Rubber Duck
And I’m about to put the hammer down

[Chorus 1]
Cause we got a little ‘ole convoy
Rockin’ through the night
Yeah, we got a little ‘ole convoy
Ain’t she a beautiful sight
C’mon and join our Convoy
Ain’t nothin’ gonna get in our way
We gonna roll this truckin’ convoy
‘Cross the USA
Convoy
Convoy
