Lyrics to song Overdrive by The Road Hammers

I got eighteen wheels and a polished rig
I'm in a big ol' hurry and I do mean big
Got to get this load to the kamen town
Before the sun comes up and they shut me down
Oh, oh, overdrive

I got stopped by the man at the eagle scale
Got sidetracked by the waitress at the steak and ale
Got walleyed, all day, traffic jam
Just south of the border down in Alabama
Oh, oh, overdrive

Overdrive
I got to roll on just to survive
The only time I feel alive
Is when I kick it into
Oh, oh, overdrive

My momma said when i was born
I was born on the run
My daddy was a truck drivin' son of a gun
Got a highway song running through my brain
Got Diesel oil running through my veins
Oh, oh, overdrive

Overdrive
I got to roll on just to survive
The only time I feel alive
Is when I kick it into
Oh, oh, overdrive

Overdrive
I got to roll on just to survive
The only time I feel alive
Is when I kick it into
Oh, oh, overdrive

I had a dream last night that i was standin' still
Woke up broke out sweatin' a chill
When the white line stops, they better lay down
In a cab over coffin in the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, overdrive

Overdrive
I got to roll on just to survive
The only time I feel alive
Is when I kick it into
Oh, oh, overdrive

Overdrive
I got to roll on just to survive
The only time I feel alive
Is when I kick it into
Oh, oh, overdrive

I kick it into oh, oh, oh, oh, overdrive
