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
