Written by Townes Van Zandt



Chords


Song

1.

I'm goin’ out on the highway, listenin' to them big trucks whine,
I’m goin’ out on the highway, listenin' to them big trucks whine,
White Freightliner won't you steal away my mind.

2.

Well, New Mexico ain't bad, Lord people here they treat you fine,
Well, New Mexico ain't bad, Lord people here they treat you fine,
That old White Freightliner wontcha steal away my mind.

3.

Well it's bad news from Houston, half my friends are dying,
Well it's bad news from Houston, half my friends are dying,
White Freightliner won't you steal away my mind.

4.

Well, Lord I'm gonna ramble 'til I get back to where I came,
Well, Lord I'm gonna ramble 'til I get back to where I came,
That old White Freightliner gonna haul away my brain.

5.

I'm headed out on the highway listenin' to them big trucks whine,
Headed out on the highway listenin' to them big trucks whine,
White Freightliner won't you steal away my mind.

coda:

White Freightliner won't you steal away my mind.
