The Jogger
Recorded by Bobby Bare
Written by Shel Silverstein

G
Well I've been a trucker now for twenty years
C
From the Charleston coast to the Jersey piers
D7 G
And sharin' the road with the race car nuts and loggers
C
Sunday drivers scouts on hikes Hells Angels on Harley bikes
D7 G
I never met a roader I didn't like cept them joggers


One day I'm rollin' down 1 0 1
C
I got 18 wheels and a fourteen ton
D7 G
Radio playin' a good ol' country rocker

The day was surely a trucker's dream
C
The sky was sunny and the air was clean
D7 G
When up ahead on the road I seen a skinny sweatin' jogger


Well he was dressed like they do in baby blue
C
With shortie shorts and a headband too
D7 G
I yelled Sweetie I bet that you are the hit of the men's room locker

Well I'm a runnin' late with an overload
C
So get your Adidas off a this road
D7 G
I'm LA bound and I don't slow down for dead raccoons or joggers


Well without breakin' stride or losin' poise
C
He says you and that rig sure make some noise
D7 G
I can't talk now I'm racin' against the clocker

But it's just nine miles to Forkers Leap
C
And if you ain't afraid to race that heap
D7 G
We'll see how that ol' rig holds up against a super jogger


Race I must be hearin' wrong
C
The boy's been runnin' in the sun too long
D7 G
The only place he's a racin' to is a doctor

But before I could say hey thank ya no
C
That fool yells ready get set go
D7 G
And the race is on and we're off and gone me and that maniac jogger


Well now I could'a left him far behind
C
But I played with him like a fish on a line
D7 G
And I stayed about a half a mile behind that sucker

Then I pushed her up to forty-five
C
And he sees me comin' and he starts to fly
D7
So I pushed her to sixty and shift to high
G
And finally catch that jogger and it wasn't easy


Now I'm doin' eighty and I turned to check
C
And he's stayin' right with me neck in neck
D7 G
His hearts a thumpin' like an engine goin' bocka bocka bocka

Then he said I hope you're set
C
Cause I ain't shifted into second yet
D7 G
Then he unwinds and leaves me behind eaten the dust of a jogger


Then I see him a joggin' up into the sky
C
And he yells hey thanks for the exercise
D7 G
I hope that losin' the race was not too shockin'

Ya see my dad says heaven's no place to run
C
I try to be an obedient son
D7 G
So I come down to earth to do my joggin'


Well that's the story take it or leave it
C
My trucker buddies they believe it
D7 G
So do those race car nuts and Harley hoggers

Now I'm still drivin' much the same
C
Cept I don't call nobody names
D7 G
And I tip my hat each time I pass one of them good old joggers


And I say hey good buddy can I get ya sumpin
C
How bout a little Gatorade here
D7 G
Naw that's alright I got plenty a-time
