The moon was full
The night was still
I was breaker 1-9
I’m rubber duck Big Jessie
In a convoy of five

Scooter was driving Kenworth
Yellowman was hauling horse
Stavros drives a grocery grabber
Fred’s watching our back door
With no sign of Smokey
Peddle to the metal
We were clear
When we heard his voice
The hair on my neck
Stood up in mortal fear

Hoobo doo ba de do
Heeb did diddly day
Deee ba doo ba de do
Be boo
Is what he said

Yellowman screamed
And Scooter shat
And Starvros 10-4’d Fred
It sounded like the voice of Greasy Fist Joe
But we knew he was DEAD
But he was dead
Dead dead dead

I jammed on the Jake brake
Pulled into the choke and puke
There were 10-14 truckers
Surrounded by a Bear named Duke
Smokey explained
A crotch rocket jockey
Had jack-knifed Dirty Jane
Had we kept our hammer down
Our fate would have been the same
This was the warning of Greasy Fist Joe
When it’s dark and you are tired
If you listen really low
On the static of channel 6
On your CB radio
It’ll chill your spine
It’ll blow your mind
Cause you will hear him go

Hoobo doo ba de do
Heeb did diddly day
Deee ba doo ba de do
Be bo

Is what he said
But he was dead
Dead dead dead

We were saved because we heard him
Five of us and fourteen more
So stop and heed the warning
Of Greasy Fist Joe
As you hurtle cross
The freeway of your life as it may go
Take your tootsies off the peddle
Remember go slow

This was the warning of Greasy Fist Joe
When it’s dark and you are tired
If you listen really low
On the static of channel 6
On your CB radio
It’ll chill your spine
It’ll blow your mind
Cause you will hear him go

Hoobo doo ba de do
Heeb did diddly day
Deee ba doo ba de do
Be bo
Is what he said
But he was dead
Dead dead dead
