      Johnny Cash - Monteagle Mountain Música y Letra

      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 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 
      
      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
