Pickup Man

Joe Diffie

     G

1. Well I got my first truck, when I was 3, Drove a 100 thousand miles on my knees

2. When I turned 16, I saved a few hundred bucks, My first car was a Pickup Truck

3. Most Friday nights, I can be found, In the bed of my truck on an old chaise lounge

             C

1. Hauled marbles and rocks, and thought twice before

2. I was cruisin' the town and the first girl I seen

3. Backed into my spot at the drive-in show

                 G

1. I hauled a Barbie Doll bed for the girl next door

2. Was Bobbie Jo Gentry the homecoming queen

3. You know a cargo light gives off a romantic glow

                    D

1. She tried to pay me with a kiss I began to understand,

2. She flagged me down and climbed up in the cab, and said

3. I never have to wait in line at the popcorn stand,

             G        

1. There's something women like about a Pickup Man                (back to top)

2. "I never knew you were a Pickup Man!"                                 (chorus)

3. Cause there's something women like about a pickup Man        (chorus)

 

<CHORUS>

                       C

You can set my truck on fire, roll it down a hill

          G

          And I still wouldn't trade it for a Coupe Deville

                         C

          It's got an eight foot bed that never has to be made

                            D

You know if it weren't for trucks we wouldn't have tailgates

          C

I met all my wives in traffic jams,

                                         G

You know there's something women like about a Pickup Man

 

<BRIDGE>

                         C

A bucket of rust, or a brand new machine

   D

                   Once around the block and you'll know what I mean

 

<CHORUS>
