    There's a stretch of highway on interstate 24 between
    Nashville and chattanooga
    That's claimed many trucker's life
    And your life is in your hands
    when you start down that long steep grade
    On monteagle mountain

    I just rolled out of nashville in my big rig headin' south
    My eyes are on fire feels like cotton in my mouth
    My whole body's achin' but I got to make them big wheels roll
    I got to be in florida by tomorrow morning with a full heavy load
    I got to get passed atlanta as soon as I can tonight
    I got to try to dodge the scales and stay out of smoky's sight
    But there's one big thing standin' like a nightmare in my way
    I got to top monteagle mountain a little bit later today
    Goin' down monteagle mountain on I-24
    It's hell for a trucker when the decil's at your door
    He'll tempt you and tell you come on let her roll
    Cause the mountain wants your rig and trucker I want your soul

    When I started down monteagle the brakes just wouldn't hold
    I knew I was in trouble and bout to lose control
    The runaway ramp was waitin' I saw the warnin' sign
    I said lord help me make it have mercy on this soul of mine
    Well I ploughed into that runaway ramp and
    I could feel that bigh truck groan
    My life flashed right before my eyes and for a minute
    I thought I was gone
    But when the smoke cleared I thanked god that I was still alive
    Cause when there's a runaway on monteagle
    some truckers don't survive
    Goin' down monteagle mountain...
    Yeah many a good man had lost his life
    On monteagle mountain it's a long steep grade
    Many a good hard workin' boy gone
    over the side watch out for monteagle
