Brandt also recorded a Christmas version called "Christmas Convoy", which appears on the 2006 holiday album A Gift.
In this version, the convoy helps Santa deliver his toys after a bad storm.
The song also refers to toll roads: "We just ain't a-gonna pay no toll." Also the "hammer" is the accelerator pedal; putting it down fed more diesel fuel to the engine, therefore breaking the speed limit.
(An album compilation of "trucking songs" was entitled "Put the Hammer Down".) The conversation is between "Rubber Duck", "Pig Pen" and "Sodbuster", primarily through Rubber Duck's side of the conversation. At the beginning of the song a "Kenworth pulling logs", being driven by Rubber Duck, is the "front door" (the leader) of three 18-wheelers (tractor and semi-trailer) when he realizes they have a convoy.
The song appears on the 2004 album This Time Around.Find an activity partner, new friends, a cool date or a soulmate, for a casual or long term relationship. ficktreffen privat Pforzheim Meet quality singles in your Germany area or worldwide looking for Germany dating, friends, love, marriage, romance, or just someone to chat or hang out with.

It is about a fictitious trucker rebellion that drives from the west to the east coast of the United States without stopping.What they are protesting against (other than the 55 mph speed limit, then recently introduced in response to the 1973 oil crisis) is shown by lines such as "we tore up all of our swindle sheets" (CB slang for log sheets used to record driving hours; the term referenced the practice of falsifying entries to show that drivers were getting proper sleep when, in reality, the drivers were driving more than the prescribed number of hours before mandatory rest in order to shorten trip time) and "left 'em settin' on the scales" (CB slang for Department of Transportation weigh stations on Interstates and highways to verify the weight of the truck and the drivers' hours of working through log books).England Under-19s’ Euro dreams were brought to an end in Mannheim as a set-piece double from Italy defender Federico Dimarco condemned the Young Lions to a 2-1 defeat.Aidy Boothroyd’s team, many of who had tasted Euro glory as U17s two years ago, suffered their first defeat of the competition at the worst possible time after cruising through their group stage by beating France, Netherlands and Croatia.By the time they get to "Tulsatown" (Tulsa, Oklahoma), there are 85 trucks and the "bears / Smokeys" (state police, specifically the highway patrol, who commonly wear the same campaign hats as the United States Forest Service mascot Smokey Bear) have set up a road block and have a "bear in the air" (police helicopter).
