Corb Lund - Truck Got Stuck Talkin' Blues

rate me

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck

But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up

But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut,

Which eventually pulled out the Ford

With some difficulty

Well more rain than we’d seen for a thousand years

Caused financial joys and biblical fears

It caused some smiles it caused some tears

But more to the point of our story

For The first time in the collective memory,

That old brown prairie that had been so dry for so long was very muddy

Boggy and sticky

We’d pull one truck out and get another stuck in

And motors would roar and tires would spin

We’d sink right down, down to the diff, and we’d all take turns and do it again

Till no one could move, we’d call one more friend,

Come on out here, we need you…bring your truck

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck

But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up

But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut

Which eventually pulled out the Ford

And the Dodge equal opportunities

They got me stuck in the mud, so they couldn’t rehearse

And Chavase too has missed his work

Richie, he now fears the worst, he stood up his ex wife she called him a jerk

Course Holman didn’t have nothing better do to, ‘cept ranch.

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck

But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up

But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut

Which eventually pulled out the Ford

Well it was truck after truck, we all got stuck

‘cept the big old four by hutterite truck

We all thought “lord are we in luck!”

But he wouldn’t come anywhere near us,

Mighty neighborly, mighty neighborly.

So we used a lot of our backs, a little of our brains

We jacked up the jacks, and snugged up the chains,

We all did our very best to refrain from shovelin’.

We put what timber we had, underneath the wheels

And we was all out of sand, but managed to steal

Two sacks of the best modern canola seed you ever did see,

That ‘oughta give us some traction

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck

But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up

But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut

Which eventually pulled out the Ford

We spilled genetically modified canola seed

That was genetically modified for controlling the weeds

And for big old yields and margarine oil, raised hell all over that native prairie soil

Agriculture Canada is definitely gonna be looking for us
