Onion Trucker

Bakersfield to Boston,
A little overweight.
If you saw some onions
By the side of the highway
They were probably mine.

The guy who loaded my rig
Didn’t know what he was doing
So I didn’t mind a few
Rolling loose back there
On Highway 58
On Interstate 40
On Interstate 44.
You didn’t see any
Whole bags of them, did you?
Just so long as I didn’t drop
Any whole bags.

They’ve already been on there for a week.
In all this sun?
I’m a little worried, to be honest.
They’re paying me six grand
To get the load to Boston.
That’s a lot of money.
But if I get ’em there rotten
I’ll be heading back west
With nothing but onions
On my breath.
