Give Me 40 Acres

Give Me 40 Acres

He was headin' into Boston in a big long diesel truck
It was his first trip to Boston he was having lots of luck
He was going the wrong direction down a one way street in town
And this is what he said when the police chased him down,

     Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around,
     Give me 40 acres, it's the easiest way that i've found,
     Some guys can turn it on a dime or turn it right downtown,
     But i need 40 acres to turn this rig around.

When he finally found where to unload he had a dreadful shock
His trailer pointed toward the road and his cab right to the dock
And as he looked around him through tears he made this sound,
Oh give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around,

When he finally got unloaded he was glad to leave the town
He was very, very happy going back to alabam, (to be Alabama bound)
When up ahead he saw a sign said you are northward bound
He said give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around,

He was driving down the right lane when ahead he saw a sign
And he had to made a left turn but he could not get in line
And the tears were streaming down his cheeks and they all heard him yell
Give me 40 sticks of dynamite and I'll blow this rig to____
