Leroy Van Dyke Who’s Gonna Run The Truck Stop In Tuba City When I’m Gone? lyrics

 

Who's gonna run the Truck Stop in Tuba City;

Keep the back bar clean; keep the place lookin' purdy;

Tell jokes to the folks; keep the conversation witty

When you get right down to the nubby, nitty gritty?

Who's gonna run the Truck Stop in Tuba City when I'm gone?

Honey, when I'm gone?

Well, Hank and Crystal, they moved out West

To do the job they both knew best,

And that was runnin' the best truck stop you've ever seen.

Well, Hank worked back in the kitchen and cooked,

And Crystal waited tables with a sexy look,

And before long she became known as the Truck Stop Queen.

You know, that title went to her head;

Hank became sorry he'd ever wed

That strong-willed woman who began to boss him around.

She'd yell and scream through the kitchen doors,

And tell Hank to get the lead from his drawers.

I mean, she was always puttin' him down.

Well, one day Hank had had it to his ears;

He went to the cooler, got a couple of beers;

Took Crystal by the arm to the table, and he sat her down.

Who's gonna run the Truck Stop in Tuba City;

Keep the back bar clean; keep the place lookin' purdy;

Tell jokes to the folks; keep the conversation witty

When you get right down to the nubby, nitty gritty?

Who's gonna run the Truck Stop in Tuba City when I'm gone?

Honey, when I'm gone?

Well that Greyhound bus stopped every day

To drop the mail while on its way to………..

Reno, Silver City , Fresno, Tahoe, Bakersfield,

And beautiful downtown Burbank.

He said, “Woman, I've done had enough of your cuss;

I'm puttin' my bags on that Greyhound bus.

You're a plain, bad broad, and I had enough of your lip.”

He stepped up to that slidin' door (shuuuuuuuu),
