VIDEO: Trucker Song By Corbin/Hanner – “Concrete Cowboy”

Western Pennsylvania’s Bob Corbin and David Hanner began playing music together in high school. The group charted several singles on the Billboard country music charts, playing for awhile with five members, and later as a duo. “Concrete Cowboy” was released in 1990 on the album Black and White Photograph and stands as a true anthem for drivers, past and present, everywhere.

“Concrete Cowboy” Lyrics 

“Seven p.m. I left Norfolk, Virginia. A little night trip down to Alabama.
Early next morning I was loaded and ready, hauling rolled steel out of Birmingham.
My eyes on the road, my back to the load and my hands on the wheel.
I’m a long run rider. I’m a concrete cowboy rolling down the road on rubber and steel.

Dropped off a load out in San Diego, layed over with a girl who lives by the bay.
Called my dispatcher and I’m hauling nitro, but it’s alright I’m gonna get double pay.
My eyes on the road, my back to the load and my hands on the wheel.

I’m a long run rider. I’m a concrete cowboy rolling down the road on rubber and steel.

Drove to Duluth by way of Kansas City. Layed up with Loretta out in Omaha.
I’m making a midnight run to Miami hauling nine pound hammers out of Sagina.
My eyes on the road, my back to the load and my hands on the wheel.
I’m a long run rider. I’m a concrete cowboy rolling down the road on rubber and steel.

I get so tired, man I get so lonely. Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth the cost.
But I keep on rollin’ down these highways of freedom.
Black smoke pourin’ from my dual exhausts.
My eyes on the road, my back to the load and my hands on the wheel.
I’m a long run rider. I’m a concrete cowboy rolling down the road on rubber and steel.”
