STRUM: C(4X) F(4X) C(4X) G(4X) C(4X) F(4X) C(2X) G(2X) C(4X) REPEAT
I was on the outskirts of a little southern town
   Tryin' to reach my destination before the sun went down
The old CB was blarin' away on channel 1-9!
   When there came a little boy's voice on the radio line

And he said: "Breaker 1-9! Is anyone there?
   Come on back, truckers and talk to Teddy Bear!"
Well, I keyed the mike and said: "You got it, Teddy Bear!"
   And a little boy's voice came back on the air

"'Preciate the break,  Who we got on that end?"
   I told him my handle, and, then he began:
"Now, I'm not supposed to bother you fellows out there
   Mom says you're busy and for me to stay off the air

But you see, I get lonely and it helps to talk
   'Cause that's about all I can do, I'm crippled, and, I can't walk!"
I came back and told him to fire up that mike
   And I'd talk to 'im, as long as he liked

"This was my dad's radio", the little boy said
   "But I guess it's mine and mom's now, 'cause my daddy's dead!"
"Dad had a wreck about a month ago
   He was trying to get home in a blindin' snow

Mom has to work now, to make ends meet
   And I'm not much help, with my two crippled feet!"
"She says not to worry that we'll make it alright
   But, I hear her crying, sometimes late at night

You know there's just one thing I want more than anything else to see
   Aw, I know you guys are too busy to bother with me!"
"But, you see, my dad used to take me for rides when he was home
   But, I guess that's all over now, since my daddy's gone

Not one breaker came on the old CB
   As that little crippled boy talked with me
I tried hard to swallow a lump that just wouldn't stay down
   As I thought about my boy back in Greenville Town

"Dad was going to take mom and me with him later on this year, Why,
   l remember 'im saying: 'Someday this old truck will be yours, Teddy Bear!'
But, I know I'll never get to ride an 18-wheeler again
   But, this old base will keep me in touch with all my trucker friends!"

"Teddy Bear's gonna back on out now and leave you alone
   'Cause it's about time for mom to come home
But, you give me a shout when you're passin' through
   And I'll sure be happy to come back to you!"

Well, I came back and I said: uh! "Before you go 10-10
   What's your home 20, little CB friend?"
Well, he gave me his address and I didn't once hesitate
   'Cause this hot load of freight was just gonna have to wait

I turned that truck around on a dime
   And headed straight for Jackson Street, 229
And as I rounded the corner, oh, I got one heck of a shock
   l8 wheelers were lined up for three city blocks!

Why, I guess every driver for miles around had caught Teddy Bear's call
   And that little crippled boy was having a ball
For as fast as one driver would carry him in
   Another would carry him to his truck and take off again

Well, you better believe I took my turn at riding Teddy Bear
   And then I carried him back in and put him down in his chair
And buddy if I never live to see happiness again
   I want you to know I saw it that day, in the face of that little man

We took up a collection for him before his mama got home
   And each driver said goodbye and then they all were gone
He shook my hand with a mile-long grin
   And said: "So long, trucker I'll catch ya again!"

Well, I hit the Interstate with tears in my eyes
   I turned on the radio and I got another surprise
"Breaker 1-9!" Came a voice on the air
   "Just one word of thanks from Mama Teddy Bear!"

"We wish each and every one, a special prayer for you
   'Cause, You just made my little boy's dream come true
I'll sign off now, before, I start to cry
   May God ride with you, 10-4, and goodbye."
