I'll be home soon...

The trailer is hooked
the engine is warm
my pre trip is done
and it's time to move on

As I sit and idle
there's one thing more
I need to do
before I close the door

I pick up my phone
and make the call
ring... ring...
Hello there doll

I just wanted to say
I'm ready to go
I miss you already
and still two weeks to go

Until I see you again
and hold you tight
it's so hard to leave
it takes all my might

To walk out the door
and look back at you
Waving and smiling
but what can I do?

I worry so much
when I am away
so much can happen
I sit and I pray

Lord, keep me safe
as I drive down the road
so I can get back
and finally unload

Hop in the car
drive home to my gal
to hug her and kiss her
this separation is hell

I tell her it's late
it's time to go
I love you baby
I'll call you tomorrow

I pull the door closed
fight back a tear
she's such a strong woman
to not have me near

As I pull out
in the light of the moon
I say to myself
I'll be home soon...
