She spends her week nights alone
A truck driver’s wife
So much time on her own
Not what she wanted from life

No nights spent apart for years upon years
It was gone in a flash
She cried buckets of tears
He needed a job, they needed the cash

Now he drives for a living
She works a desk job
Time passes by unforgiving
Life on the road, the years it does rob

Far from his family, he misses her, too
Days and nights in his truck
He keeps moving on, his job he must do
Time home on the weekends is left up to luck
