      About "Heavy Metal"

      Lyrics for Guy Clark - "Heavy Metal"

      Some days I think this old machine is out to get me
      Some days she does what I tell her
      It's like dancing with a widow-maker forty hours a week
      You know I'm talkin' 'bout a big ol' D-10 caterpillar

      I don't know why I like to drive 'em like I do
      You know it ain't nothin' but a
      Hundred and seventy-five thousand pounds of steel
      Could be the money, babe, could be the power
      Could be I love the way it feels, could be I love the way it feels

      But you know she's mighty unforgivin', so you got to pay attention
      You know a D-10 can be the death of you
      But I get her all fired up and I can feel it in my soul
      You know it's hard to tell who's drivin' who

      And I can move Alaska all the way to Beirut
      I can bulldoze a beeline from here to Peru
      I can push the rocky mountains into the sea
      You know heavy metal don't mean rock and roll to me

      But you know I'm like a modern day mule skinner
      I'm drivin' ten thousand mules so I got to say a little prayer every day
      Lord, just let me get her turned around
      Without fallin' down this mountain
      'Cause you know the boss don't like me treatin' his D-10 that way

      I don't know why I like to drive 'em like I do
      You know it ain't nothin' but a
      Hundred and seventy-five thousand pounds of steel
      Could be the money, babe, could be the power
      Could be I love the way it feels, could be I love the way it feels
      Could be I love the way it feels, could be I love the way it feels
