Thanks For All The Miles (Intro)

Dave Dudley

© Newkeys Music, BMI

This is Dave Dudley
And I'd like to take a few seconds of your time
To add my sincerest appreciation for all the nice things you've done for me
And to kindly introduce this album personally
We've picked some of the old songs that have come down through the years
Then added a few new ones
Some of which I've helped write especially for this album
So I do hope it contains a good variety that you'll enjoy hearing
I've been looking forward to meeting you at all the new places
We plan to visit in the near future
So until then thank you very kindly for bein' my friend
And here's the album Thanks For All The Miles and we really mean that

There Ain't No Easy Run

Tom T. Hall - Dave Dudley

© Newkeys Music, BM

I was sittin' in the terminal waitin' for my load
When a greenhorn driver came in off of the road
I heard him tell that foreman get my little pink slip
This run's too tough and I'm gonna quit

Now the foreman that day happened to be old Joe
Man he was older than time
He said son how long you been drivin' this rig
You know I drove all shapes forms fashions and kinds
And here you are worried bout this one little trip
Why I drove a million miles and then some
He looked that greenhorn right in the eye
And he said boy there ain't no easy run

I drove for Roadway Interstate Hopewell Great Lake's
Hoffermack and Time Mayflower and Freigh Line
Specter Yellow Transit Western and Gillete
Redball Rider North Western Big Seattle
Beaver Bell Hoover McLeans
Gateway Motor Freight Transport Pikes
Dixie Ohio Trans American South
East Tex Mason Dixon Watkin and Transcon
Wilson Associate got all that drivin' done
And I'll tell you boy there ain't no easy run

Now if you got a gal in Texas they'll send you up to Maine
If you got a gal in New York they'll send you out to the plains
I know what your problem is you got woman trouble son
Well like I said there ain't no easy run

I drove for Navajo Rate Goose DC
North American Airlight Court and Over Freight and Pie
Yuma Curtis Eastern and NX
Garrett Ace Federal and ETM
And Neptun and Herron Brinks and Sea Lab
First Dudley Dorsey Bekins and Cullingham
Cooper Detroit Jones American too
Nightmay and Central Standard and Boston Sue
And Yunhan and Buckingham got all that drivin' done
And I'll tell you boy there ain't no easy run

I went backward foreward uphill downhill chills spills thrills and pills
And how bout Atlas and Creamer Alabama Hiway Express Murphy
Lion and Long and Harris General Stickland Eden and Key
How bout Detroit Friday afternoon there's somethin' else too
Atlantic Daily McCray Wheeling Rockwell Gilbert

Where Does A Little Boy Go

Dave Dudley

© Newkeys Music, BMI

Where does a little boy go
After he leaves his carefree life
Where does a little boy go
He's then a young man a looking for a wife

Where does a young man go
With a woman and a family that cares
Where does a young man go
He goes to some silver in his hair

Where does the silver hair go
When this grown-up man has settled in his ways
Where does the silver hair go
It suddenly turns in to yesterday

Where did those yesterdays go
They just seem to disappear into the past
Where did those yesterdays go
They turned into memories so very fast

Where does a memory go
Will it stay around to last and to enjoy
Where does a memory go
There'll be memories as long as there's our little boys

Where does a little boy go
Where does a little boy go

Gotta Travel On

Paul Clayton

© Sanga Music, BMI

I've laid around played around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone winter's comin' on
I've laid around played around this old town too long
And I feel like I've gotta travel on

Papa writes to Johnny but Johnny can't come home
Johnny can't come home no Johnny can't come home
Papa writes to Johnny but Johnny can't come home
He's been on that chain gang too long

I've laid around played around this old town too long...

High sheriff and police ridin' after me
Ridin' after me comin' after me
High sheriff and police they're ridin' after me
And I feel like I've gotta travel on

I've laid around played around this old town too long...

Wanna see my honey wanna see her bad
Wanna see her bad I've gotta see her bad
Wanna see my honey I wanna see her bad
She's the best gal this poor boy ever had

I've laid around played around this old town too long...

My Town

Dave Dudley

© Newkeys Music, BMI

Each night when I sleep I dream of a love in my town
I don't count sheep just the faces of her in my town
I miss her all the time and she's always on my mind and then somethin' else
A love that's all mine gonna stay there this time in my town

Well I write her letters and I always send her X's
And I'm goin' back cause there ain't a darn cow in Texas
Don't need to wait cause I've been every place and then somethin' else
And that love in mind will keep me this time in my town

I'm a gonna get there as fast as I can get there back to my town
Maybe a long time but not a lifetime
I'm a gonna hold her tight squeeze her with all my might
While I put my suitcase down

I met a lotta girls but never like that girl in my town
They reminded me of her and that makes me lonesome for my town
I do all the time though I put it from my mind but I learn somethin' else
That the girl that is mine will keep me this time in my town

That the girl that is mine will keep me this time in my town
That the girl that is mine will keep me this time in my town

Let No Man Tell Me What To Do

Roy Baham

© Newkeys Music, BMI

They made only one of me packed me one to the box
And they'll know I've been here before I'm through
If I walk or if I crawl if I stand or if I fall
Let no man tell me what to do

If the pickin's lean
And if all of my dreams don't come true
I may never have a lot but you can bet I call the shots
So let no man tell me what to do

When the good love comes along you get yours I got mine
I've done alright even though I've missed a few
I stand one man among men if I sink or if I swim
Well let no man tell me what to do

If the pickin's lean...
So let no man tell me what to do

I Keep Coming Back For More

Dave Dudley

© Newkeys Music, BMI

Sometimes I'm so hurt and disappointed
By the crazy things you always do
And I'm packin' everything and I'm gone like before
But that's not all
I keep coming back for more

Coming back to try to survive again
Too bad I have to love you like I do
I tell myself you need me but I know just what's in store
And that's not all
I keep coming back no more

It's not the way you use me and hurt me
It's the way you keep me in a world of blue
So I run away from you and this world of yours
But it's funny I keep coming back for more

Coming back to have some more misery
Bringing back what's left of me to you
I'll do anything for you but I'll never know what for
And that's not all
I keep coming back for more

But I Forget You Know Me Pretty Well

Dave Dudley

© Newkeys Music, BMI

What makes you think I'm just a weakly
That I'll take you back from now until
You know I think that's kinda funny
But I forget you know me pretty well

What do you mean you think I want you
That I still need you you can tell
After the way you dropped it on me
But I forget you know me pretty well

You told me to go that there was no more
You called me your stuff so I call your bluff
Then you went to him now you're back again
And you think I'll go back out there on that limb

What do you think I am a dummy
That I'll go right back through your mill
You know I gotta hand it to you
Cause I forget you know me pretty well

You told me to go that there was no more...

Cause I forget you know me pretty well
It's in my mind you know me pretty well
Yeah I forget you know me pretty well

Why I Can't Be With You

Dave Dudley

© Newkeys Music, BMI

I hear all kinds of melodies going though my head
And all of them remind me of your name
And all of these old melodies keep bringin' back old times
And why I can't be with you is a shame

I see all kinds of memories going past my eyes
And memories of you won't look the same
Cause every girl that looks my way looks very much like you
And why I can't be with you is a shame

There must be a way that I can have you
Back with me the way it used to be
I'd give up a hundred years if I had 'em
To hear you say once more that you want me

I can't imagine why it was you fell out of love with me
From now on my life will never be the same
You know that I would die for you and I'll die without you too
So why I can't be with you is a shame

There must be a way that I can have you...

Why I can't be with you is a shame
Why I can't be with you is a shame

I Washed My Face In The Morning Dew

Tom T. Hall

© Newkeys Music, BMI

The first strange town I was ever in
The county was hangin' a man
Nobody cared if he lived or died
And I just didn't understand

So I washed my face in the morning dew
Bathed my soul in the sun
Washed my face in the morning dew
And kept on movin' along

The second strange town that I was in
They were laughin' at a poor crippled man
Beggin' for nickels and dimes on the street
And I just didn't understand

So I washed my face in the morning dew...

The third strange town that I was in
Was settled peaceful and nice
The rich got richer and the poor got poorer
And to me it didn't seem right

So I washed my face in the morning dew...

Someday times are bound to change
It can't be very far
And each injustice I have seen
Will come before the bar

Then I'll wash my face in the morning dew
Bathe my soul in the sun
Wash my face in the morning dew
And my journey will be done
Then my journey will be done

Truck Drivin' Man

Terry Fell

© American Music, BMI

I wheeled into a truckstop in Texas
A little place called Hamburger Dan's
I heard that old jukebox a playin'
Song about a truck drivin' man

That waitress done brought me some coffee
I thanked her then called her back again
I said you know that song it sure does fit me
Cause I'm a truck drivin' man

Pour me another cup of coffee
For it is the best in the land
I'll put another quarter in the jukebox
And play the Truck Drivin' Man

Well I climbed back aboard my old semi
Then like a flash I was gone
I got them old truck wheels a rollin'
Now I'm on my way to San Antone

When I get my call up to glory
They'll take me away from this land
I'll head this old rig up to heaven
Cause I'm a truck drivin' man

Pour me another cup of coffee...
And play the Truck Drivin' Man

Don't Fence Me In

Cole Porter

© Harms Music, ASCAP

Oh give me land lots of land under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me out forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose
Let me straddle my old saddle underneath the western skies
By myself let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountain rise
I wanna ride to the ridge where the west commences
Gaze at the moon until I lose my senses
Can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose...

Don't fence me in
Oh don't fence me in
Don't fence me in
