We was huntin' bear for the rockin' chair out on I-40
Dodgin' bucks n pick-up trucks in west New Mexico
It was a cloudy day and me and ole Jay was just about bored to tears
But we come awake when a C. B. Break come a ringin' loud and clear

And we heard this voice that we ain't never heard before sayin'
(Break 19, I'm C. B Savage, Hi all you 18 wheelers
Anyone seen any smokey bears,
How about some bare smokies?, aha C. B. Savage here come-on)

Well, I looked at Jay, and I said Hey, did you hear what I just heard
He nodded his head, and his face got red, n he never said a word
We both reached for the mike, a thinkin' we might, just answer that 19 call
When that C. B. Device came back to life, just a lispin' wall to wall

And that unusual voice came on again sayin'
(Break 19 again, this is your one and only C. B. Savage
Mercy sakes good bodies, aha, could I please have your 20?
I'd settle for a big 10-4, mercy, mercy, how 'bout a mile post
Listen, you can't keep your hammers down forever you know
Speak to me peddle pumpers, how about it)

Well the box went dead and we looked straight ahead and didn't say a word at all
We had 4 in the chair, and the door back there, but nobody'd answer that call
A while went by, and Jay and I, we started breathin' again
We figured this stranger was plumb out of range, when all at once he come back in

It was that same odd voice sayin'
(Breakers, Breakers, any takers, Hi Hi, it's me again
I'm in your chair and I love it there
Say you truckers really know how to take a person for a ride
Speak to me you Diesel Demons, I'd love to get to know your handles aha
C. B. Savage here, come-on, come-on)

Well I grabbed the mike, and I held it tight, and my hand began to sweat
I looked at Jay, and he was grinnin' away, like a big ole bird fed cat
So I put down the talker, and turned up the squaker, and got a good grip on the wheel
I decided the trucker that answered this duck sure as heck wasn't gonna be me

'Bout that time that weird voice came back on again sayin'
(You Hoo, Breakeroo, Hi Hi you Jim Dandy Jimmy jammers you
Do I ever have a surprise for you
If you listen real close, you'll find my voice is changin'
And if you'll start checkin' your rear views, you'll find you got company
Fine plain white smokies dressin' up for a ticket writin' party
Y'all was so busy copyin' my put on, you didn't notice your little convoy was being infiltrated
You can start shuttin' 'em down any time now
This is your C. B. Savage, the smokies friend, wall to wall and tree top tall
That is all, bye bye)
