GIVE ME 40 ACRES (TO TURN THIS RIG AROUND) (Earl Green / John William Greene) The Willis Brothers - 1964 He was headin' into Boston in a big, long diesel truck It was his first trip to Boston, he was having lots of luck He was going the wrong direction down a one-way street in town And this is what he said when the police chased him down. CHORUS: Give me forty acres and I'll turn this rig around It's the easiest way that I've found ... Some guys can turn it on a dime or turn it right downtown But I need forty acres to turn this rig around. When he finally found where to unload, he had a dreadful shock His trailer pointed toward the road and his cab right to the dock And as he looked around him through the tears he made this sound Oh, give me forty acres and I'll turn this rig around. CHORUS When he finally got unloaded, he was glad to leave the town He was very, very happy, headin' back to Alabam' When up ahead he saw a sign, said; "You are Northward bound." He said; "Give me forty acres and I'll turn this rig around." He was driving down the right lane, when ahead he saw a sign Now he's gotta make a left turn, but he cannot get in line And the tears were streaming down his cheeks and they all heard him yell "Give me forty sticks of dynamite and I'll blow this thing to ... !" CHORUS
