G CWhen I was a young girl, I wanted to be a truckdriver
G C I wanted to drive my whole life away
G BmI would stop at all of the truckstops on the roadside and I’d
C AmOrder the special with fries
G D CThen I would get back in my truck and drive for miles and miles
G CI grew up on a farm out in southern Ontario, I guess I was a lucky girl
G CBut our white picket fence was a bit of a joke, it was broke and it fenced me in
G BmSometimes to get away I would lay myself down
C AmIn the sweet summer hay fields at night
G DI'd watch the headlights on the highway and I would
CDream of a better life
G CI would drive
G CI would drive
I got my license when I was seventeen years old, it was my freedom ticket I’d listen to rock 'n' roll on FM radio as I drove those country roads Then I’d pick up a six-pack and a couple of friends and we’d just Waste time, driving around I'd feel the wind on my face, then I'd go get drunk in a field someplace Chorus: I would drive I would drive When I was twenty-two, I finished some school, packed up and Moved out west Sitting on my roof above the city smoking hand-rolled cigarettes But there were buildings between me and who I wanted to be And they started closing in on me I got that “gotta get me outta this place” feeling again So I got me a job stocking shelves for eight bucks an hour in A small mountain town grocery store And the women cashiers had been working there for many years or more And their husbands worked the butcher line While I tried to keep my stock in a straight line But I was biding time and besides I never was the marrying kind Bridge:
D CI’m hard because I’ve had to be
D CAnd I’m scarred from my life’s accident scenes
D But singing taught me to feel something
CIn the midst of nothing
D CIt got my heart pumping and put my hands on the wheel (hands on the wheel)
Chorus: I will drive I will drive
G CWhen I was a young girl, I wanted to be a truckdriver
