[Intro]
D
 
 
[Verse 1]
      D
I was sitting in the terminal waiting for my load
       D
When a greenhorn driver came in off of the road
  D
I heard him tell that foreman, "Get my little pink slip.
     G           A                 D
This run's too tough and I'm gonna quit."
D
Now, the foreman that day happened to be old Joe
    D
Man, he was older than time
          D
He said, "Son, how long you been driving this rig?
D
You know, I drove all shapes, forms, fashions and kinds,
D
Here you are, worried about this one little trip.
D
Why, I drove a million miles and then some."
D
He looked that greenhorn right in the eye and he said,
 D    N.C.
"Boy, there ain't no easy run"
 
 
[Chorus 1]

Wilson, Associate, got all that driving done
         G                    A             D
And I'll tell you, boy, there ain't no easy run
 
 
[Verse 2]
         D                               G               D
"Now, if you got a gal in Texas, they'll send you up to Maine
             D                        E                     A
If you got a gal in New York, they'll send you out to the plains
D                                    G               D
I know what your problem is: you got woman trouble, son
     G                  A             D
But, like I said, there ain't no easy run"
