Lyrics

Superman

Written By: Lisa Godino

78 west bound heading for the PA line
Minding my own business, listen to the radio passing time
Then a voice came over the CB, a familiar sound that I know oh so well
He said "tanker where you going? Do you mind if we chat for a little while?"
So we talked about the weather and we talked about country, we talked about the men who die and shed their blood for thy, we talked about salvation and we talked about generations and we talked about one other thing that almost made me cry
And he said "my handle Superman, but I don't feel like a superman today, you see on on my way to Chicago and my kids wanted me home on Christmas day"
And the wind blew hard, as we rolled that road, and I knew in his heart, he would go, yes he would go, down that road
And just before my exit, there was one thing I wanted him to know, "it was very nice to met you, I hope I made you feel a little at home"
And his words keep echoing down that road
"My handle Superman, but I don't feel like a superman today, you see I'm on my way to Chicago, and my kids wanted me home on Christmas day"

I've been truckin' for 19 years. This song was inspired but a real event. Thank you for taking the time to read. Lisa Godino "Plum Run"
