Big Wheel
Jim Croce


Big wheel, don't you roll
Big diesel, don't you whine
Through the night as I'm running down the road
Big semi, don't you stop, 'cause if you do I'm not
Gonna make it back to Baltimore with my load

Well, the truckstop's warm and friendly
And the coffee keeps me up
And the waitress there would like to waste my time
But I'll have to pass it by
As it's down the road I fly
Just a-racing with that pocket watch of mine

Big wheel, don't you roll
Big diesel, don't you whine
Through the night as I'm running down the road
Big semi, don't you stop, 'cause if you do I'm not
Gonna make it back to Baltimore with my load

Smoke a-puffing, tires a-humming
Burning up the road
Counting road signs and the miles to Baltimore
One eye out for weighing stations
One for radar traps
They can't stop me, 'cause my plans don't call for that

And a-big wheel, don't you roll
Big diesel, don't you whine
Through the night as I'm running down the road
Big semi, don't you stop, 'cause if you do I'm not
Gonna make it back to Baltimore with my load
