King of these highways

Verse 
Rattles and she grumbles 
The load begins to roll 
This old diesel tractors 
A veteran of the road. 
Gear to gear mile to mile 
Each battle is a war 
Five hundred thousand miles 
Who knows how many more? 
Chorus
His only thanks a tank of fuel 
To feed him on the way. 
You’ll use him till he’s all used up
Then haul his hulk away. 
But for now this old diesel truck’s
The king of these highways.
Verse 
Coal from Carolina
To stoke those Pittsburg fires.
Steel out to Chicago
Made into shiny spires
Back across the Great Plains
Across the great divide
Takes what he’s been given
He makes the best of life
Chorus
His only thanks a tank of fuel 
To feed him on the way. 
You’ll use him till he’s all used up
Then haul his hulk away. 
But for now this old diesel truck’s
The king of these highways.
Verse
This old diesel tractor
He breaks his back to please
Without him this country
Would be down on its knees.
He doesn’t ask for much
He gives all that he has
So give a honk and wave
Each time he has to pass.
Chorus
His only thanks a tank of fuel 
To feed him on the way. 
You’ll use him till he’s all used up
Then haul his hulk away. 
But for now this old diesel truck’s
The king of these highways.
