Super Slab Hits

All the excitement, danger and romance of the big trucks and the open road.

I have an enormous weak spot for Truck Driving music. There's just something about the lure of the open road, the excitement of the big rigs, the freedom, the danger, the women... well, you get the picture.

Super Slab Hits delivers a bevy of gritty truckin' mantras. You won't find me on a long road trip without the likes of these tunes available to keep the tempo up and add that extra flavor to the long haul.

You have to wonder whether they make records like this for truck drivers themselves, or if they're really intended for city-boy wannabes like me. After all, it would be pretty hard to keep the needle down when you're doing 65 MPH in an 18 wheeler on Interstate 80. (Perhaps an 8-track tape version was available at truck stops for the mobile crowd).

You know my dad had a radio, but I guess it's mine and Mom's now 'cause my daddy's dead. Dad had a wreck about a month ago. He was trying to get home in a blinding snow. Mom has to work now to make ends meet, and I'm not much help with my two crippled feet. She says not to worry, that we'll make it all right, But I hear her crying sometimes late at night. You know, there's one thing I want more than anything else to see. Aw, I know you guys are too busy to bother with me, But, you see, my dad used to take me for rides when he was home
But I guess that's all over now since my daddy's gone." (01-07-2007)

What is wrong with a Nice rich republican White man trying to make a buck in the State of Colorado. This is free enterprise at work.
What is wrong with a man with money and vision declaring IMINANT DOMAIN on some poor farmers land. Wal Mart does it all the time.
SUPER SLAB is an idea thats time hascome. Besides all the illegal aliens in Pueblo can take the SUPER SLAB toll and never worry about I.C.E. Agents. SUPER SLAB would be the best thing for that little alien hide out town called pueblo since CF & I folded.

You gotta check out the version by Texas guitar legend Junior Brown. He really did this song justice. (09-29-2005)

Hi. I am also looking for the lyrics to Teddy Bear's last ride by Diana Williams... If you have them, can you please email them to me? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks (05-11-2005)

God Bless Truckers. Without them good ole' boys, there wouldn't be 2% milk in the grocery store, or cat food in wal-mart. So tomorrow, when you're driving to work and you see a truck, just think of all the cat food he's hauled for you and me. And if you have a CB, turn it to channel 19 and say hi. And if you're a woman, offer yourself up to him. He's been on the road for 22 hours straight and he is lonely. (04-04-2005)
