Don’t Take Your Rig to Town

(Sung to the tune of Johnny Cash’s “Don’t take your guns to town”

By Michaela Ryan

Young driver name of Gus

Bored to tears on the job

Of following country roads

He was filled with restlessness

He’d never been to Kenedy

He hosed down his rig and Shined the chrome

And he wiped mud from his boots

But then boss man yelled as he drove away

Don’t take that rig to town, Son,

Don’t take that rig to town

He grinned and waved the boss man bye

I’m Gus and I drive the best

I can turn as sharp and back as straight

As good men can

And I wouldn’t speed without a cause

Or run nobody down

But the gauger yelled as he drove away

Don’t take that rig to town, Son,

Don’t take that rig to town

Well, he passed the city limit sign

And turned on streets so fine

And he drove and just enjoyed himself

And even passed a red stop sign

A siren came from out nowhere then

He slowed to stop his rig

And he heard again the gauger’s cry

Don’t take that rig to town, Son,

Don’t take that rig to town

He knew cops were after him

So grabbed his CDL

Kenedy’s finest knew what he’d done

So down the window came

The cop said, “Where’s your CDL?”

This here is Main Street, Son

Then he remembered the gauger’s yell

Don’t take that rig to town, Son,

Don’t take that rig to town
