Heavy Load

Billy drives them road trains
All across this land
Heís got 13 tons of steel and diesel
Underneath his hands
And he canít recall the last time
He lay down in a bed
With a woman who loved him
He didnít pay instead

Heís got a heavy load

Well a man has got a job to do
And Billy aint afraid
He takes all them loads thatís oversize
And heíll fly em down that interstate
Heíll pull em all night long
Just to make to the drop
Then heíll deadhead back to Texas
Cause he aint gonna stop

Heís got a heavy load
And heís trying to get home
Heís got a heavy load
And he pulls it all alone
Someday theyíre gonna lay him down
When he runs out of road
And I hope Jesus has a diesel truck
To carry him home

The load that Billy carries
You canít pull with no machine
Aint a day that goes by he donít remember
All those broken dreams
Cause the cancer took his mama
Then it took his wife
Then his only brother
He lost his only life

Heís got a heavy load
And heís trying to get home
Heís got a heavy load
And he pulls it all alone
Someday theyíre gonna lay him down
When he runs out of road
And I hope God has got a diesel truck
To carry him home

Billyíl tell you stories
If you give him half a chance
And Iíve heard Ďem all a thousand times
But I just let him rant
Cause he was my daddyís brother
Before my daddy left this plane
And you know blood it aint like water
Itís what makes us the same

We got a heavy load
And weíre trying to get home
We got a heavy load
And he donít pull it all alone
Someday Iím gonna lay him down
When he runs out of road
And I hope Jesus has a diesel truck
To carry him home


This one is about my uncle Bill and our family. He drives an 18 wheeler. That road gets mighty lonely. Sometimes itís good to remember that blood is thicker than water.
