Convoy (New Version) 3:57
[CB]
"Ah, breaker one-nine, this here's the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me, Love Machine? Ah, 10-4, Pig Pen, fer shure, fer shure. By golly, it's clean clear to Taco Town. Yeah, we definitely got us the front door, good buddy. Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy..."

Arizona, noon, on the seventh of June
When they highballed over the pass
Bulldog Mack with a can on back
And a Jaguar haulin' ass
He's ten on the floor, stroke an' bore
Seatcover's startin' ta gain
Now beaver, you a-truckin' with the Rubber Duck
An' I'm about ta pull the plug on your drain

[Chorus]
'Cause we got a little ol' convoy
Rockin' through the night
Yeah, we got a little ol' convoy,
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy
'Cross the U-S-A
Convoy!

[CB]
"Ah, breaker, Pig Pen, this here's the Duck, again, and ah you wanna back off on them go-go girls? 10, roger, 'bout five mile or so. Yeah, them hogs is gettin' in-tense up here."

New Mexico I-four-oh
Like Texas lizard on grass
We were goin for broke
On a cloud of smoke with a thousand scream trucks
Sayin praise the Lord, shut the back door
And follow that Rubber Duck, ten-four

[Chorus]
'Cause we got a great big convoy
Rockin' through the night.
Yeah, we got a great big convoy,
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way.
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy
'Cross the U-S-A.
Convoy!

[This next verse appears only in the movie itself; it's not in the song on the soundtrack album]

Texas dawn and the charge was on to the pits of Alvarez town
We had nine of our best comin' outta the west
And the ultimate hammer was down
Yeah, speed-trap city and we showed no pity
'Cause the whole damn place was a pile
We could tell by the smell it was trucker's hell
And the devil was Dirty Lyle

[CB]
Ah, now here's the plan, Pig Pen. When we get to the pass, we're gonna put on our fish costumes, pass out the Vaseline® an' an extra ration a' rum for the men. That should do it.


The following versus's are also in the movie soundtrack, except the first set is a remake of "New Mexico I-40"(the last three lines are used for scenes  during credit roll for "Texas Dawn") which is heard only during the roll of credits at end of movie.

New Mexico, on I-four-oh
Like a Texas lizard on glass
One thousand pedals was mashin' the metal
Them bears was a-walkin' the grass
We trucked all day and we trucked all night
Pig Penny improvin' our style
We could tell by the smell
We was headin' for Hell
And the Devil was Dirty Lyle

(Heard in movie and soundtrack)

Now Lyle was a creep,
He was tacky and cheap,
But he had him a badge an' a gun.
He hated the Duck and he hated his truck,
And he loved to bust truckers for fun.
So he followed the line,
And he bided his time,
And he watched for his chance to strike.
Then he picked on a trucker,
Yeah, a wiry ol' sucker,
Yeah, the trucker they call Spider Mike.
But the great Rubber Duck,
Sorta run outta luck
When he crossed that final bridge.
There's choppers and rigs full'a guns an' pigs,
They's wall-to-wall on the ridge.
He showed no fear as he grabbed his gear,
An' he stuck it in grandaddy low.
Them guns went boom,
An' his ass went zoom
An' the Mack took a terminal blow

[CB]
Ah, how 'bout ya, Big Nasty, c'mon there. Say, listen, Big Nasty, we sure are glad you was along on this here run ta kick ass, dontcha know? Ah, 10-4, I know you can't say "kick ass" on the CB. Back.

Well, that big black Mack stopped dead in her tracks
When the trailer blew high in the air
There was pieces of truck and some pieces of Duck
And junk and debris everywhere
Then the rig took a drink an' commenced to sink
And there was no Duck no more
But that evil smile from Dirty ol' Lyle
Shone south from the north Texas shore

[Chorus]

'Cause we got a mighty convoy
Rockin' through the night.
Yeah, we got a mighty convoy,
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way.
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy
'Cross the U-S-A.
Convoy!

Convoy! Ah, 10-4,
Convoy! Pig Pen, what's your twenty? Omaha? Well,
Convoy! they oughta know what to do with them hogs out there fer shure. Well, listen, good buddy,
Convoy! keep the bugs off'n your glass and the bears off'n your ass. We'll
Convoy! catch you on the flip-flop. This here's the Rubber Duck on the side. Southbound an' down.
Convoy! We gone. 'Bye,'bye.
