[Verse 1]
 A 
Well when I was just a little bitty kid
 D 
I remember one time Mommy said
 E A 
Daddy sends you all his love, from 'Frisco Bay
 A 
Well I didn't understand till I was grown
 D 
Why my Daddy didn't spend a little time at home
 E A 
Instead of running round the country that way


[Chorus]
 A E 
Oh I'm looking at the world through a windshield
  E A 
Seeing everything in a little bit different light
 A D7 
I got a sweet little thing that I'm dying to see in Nashville
 E A 
And I'm down around Dallas and rolling on south tonight

[Verse 2]
 A                                         
Well long strips of rubber that you see
 D 
Were burnt off of this rig by the likes of me
 E A 
And they'll rot along the highways in this land
 A 
I'm gonna write my name in this diesel smoke
 D 
And let the ones that come along behind me choke
 E A 
And try to keep this pace I'm setting anytime that they can


[Chorus]
 A E 
Oh I'm looking at the world through a windshield
 E A 
Watching it fly by me on the right
 A D7 
I got a sweet little thing that I'm dying to see in Nashville
 E A 
And I'm down around Dallas and rolling on south tonight


[Verse 3]
 A 
Well I push this rig through the sleet and rain
 D 
And I've driven through the rough terrain
 E A 
Of the rockies to the docks of old L.A.
 A 
On down that old pacific shore
 D 
I swing north and head for Baltimore
 E A 
Or some place 'bout 2000 miles away

[Chorus]
 A E 
Oh I'm looking at the world through a windshield
  E A 
Watching it fly by me on the right
 A D7 
I got a sweet little thing that I'm dying to see in Nashville
 E A 
And I'm down around Dallas and rolling on south tonight
 E A 
And I'm down around Dallas and rolling on south tonight
