Dave Dudley’s “Six Days On The Road” has a strong identity as a Country song, but in 1963 when I first became aware of this Truckin’ little diddy I was a deejay at a Top-40 station! I’d just been hired by Gary Bruno (Taylor), at the time the PD of KSEM in Moses Lake, and Gary had already added “Six Days” to the station’s current records rotation.
There have been many cover versions of this truck drivers’ anthem recorded by everyone from George Thorogood & The Destroyers to Steve Earle, The Flying Burrito Brothers and Sawyer Brown. It remains, perhaps, the most memorable of all truck driving songs.
