My hands are stained and calloused
Advertisements [?]
and I have scars on my face from working in the trucking biz. Do you wish you could be me? Out there traveling the interstate? I used to wish I could be you in there driving your desk. Not anymore. Now I have pride in what I do. It seems perverse after getting beat up like I have been, but I take pride in what I do. But in the end we need each other. We rely on each other for our livelihood. You are my brother or sister just trying to make ends meet just like me. God bless you and I hope we can get together some day.
