So I know six days on the road is a cover song, but anyone know what the lyric "I just passed a jimmy and a white" means? Some trucker lingo I suppose. Thanks.

A Screaming Jimmy was a GMC truck and a White was a White Motor Company truck.

At a local truckstop in my hometown, the restaurant has hamburgers named after semis: Western Star, Kenworth, Pete and White.

Truck songs/CB radio were a thing on U.S. radio at one time. Here's a few.

This would tie in well with Far Away Eyes

I remember when Convoy came out back in the late 70s! Not sure if he only put out that song as a single or it was part of an album. Can't imagine it would be a very exciting concert! You pretty much know Convoy will be the encore!
