TRUCK ON BROTHER, TRUCK ON

THE TRUCKER’S LAST RIDE

He traveled the roads

In years gone past

A life he chose and

Hoped it would last.

Driving all night

From state to state

Trying to get home

And arriving so late.

He parked his truck now

His engine has stopped

And those who love him

Their hearts have dropped

He traveled the country

With a smile of great pride

Now he drives the streets of Heaven

On the truckers last ride.

“MAY GOD RIDE WITH YOU……..10-4 AND GOODBYE”
