about

This is an anti-war truck-drivin' song dedicated to soldiers, truck drivers, and soldier truck-drivers, everywhere.

lyrics

There's an Arab moon in the sky tonight
and the Southern stars are shinin' bright
and the only thing missin' for me
is the smell of you

I was there, but now I'm here
Familiar ring is in my ear
and nothin' more has to be
to make me blue

It's a dusty trail as far as I can see
there's a million miles between you and me
and I won't be near a phone
anytime soon

Sirens wail and I duck my head
I wish I was back home in bed
Dreamin' of Saturday's
ice-cream spoon

Chorus:
I was thinkin' / the times we've had
Mardi Gras and mountain lakes
My destination is downtown Baghdad
and this delivery I got to make

My ol' dog is barkin' loud
He's happy to be free, black and proud
You won't find anything
Any more true

Burger & fries and American thighs
I'm a sucker for big brown eyes
and a soft voice whispering
"I pick you."

I'm a lonely driver on the road tonight
and I can't even read the highway signs
and the only think shinin' on me
is the Arab moon

Chorus:
I was thinkin' / the times we've had
and all the love I've got to give
My destination is downtown Baghdad
My first job is just to live

There's an Arab moon in the sky tonight
and the Southern stars are shinin' bright
and the only thing missin' for me
is the smell of you
