Love Songs for Driving
Love songs are everywhere. Valentine’s day is a great holiday for those in love. Regardless of any impasse that a couple can come across love can and will continue to prevail. Well, the trucking industry knows a thing or two about love at a distance. That’s is why we dug deep and found some of the best love songs for truckers on the road.
Ann Lee Womack – A Man With 18 Wheels
The song is a cheerful little ditty. It expresses the longing that the singer has for her man who drives an 18-wheeler. She’s just one day away until she’s in the arms of her loved one. She understands that when he comes home from the long haul, he’ll be all hers. That’s the dream, isn’t it? Working hard after a long day’s work (or 10) to come home and have someone there waiting for you. Or understanding the wait until you see your loved one again. Many truckers feel this way on valentine’s day and this love song works perfectly to fit that hole in someone, long-distance heart.
3 Doors Down – I’m Here Without You Baby
This song has been a tried and true classic since it was released in the early 2000s. Everyone from military to travelers has had this playing for them one time or another. It’s all about long-distance love. Many people are away for the holiday and might not return for a while.
“The miles just keep rollin’
As the people leave their way to say hello
I’ve heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go. “
Boy, if that doesn’t ring loud and clear through many truckers’ heads, then I’m not sure what does.
The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)
This is a classic. It depicts the dream of every long-distance relationship. We could post a section of the song that hits home with most people on the road, but that would be the entire song. As opposed to a saddened lonely heart, this song actually has quite a great beat to it. It’s uplifting and reassuring that things are okay no matter where these two are in the world. Even if they can’t make it home on time for one reason or another, you can rest assure they’ll walk 500 miles to get you their lover’s doorstep.
