HAM AND EGGS (Slim Dusty / Tom Oliver) Slim Dusty - 1997 She sees a million miles of travel in a truckies weary gaze Sees southern winter drizzle and northern summer haze She can see those eyes searching for the roadhouse sign ahead For he needs a cup of coffee and a feed of steak and eggs There's country on the radio, there’s lights upon the hill And a winking neon sign out front says Charlie's Bar & Grill It's a beacon light for drivers out there on the interstate But here she is at 2 A.M. grilling ham and steak. Ham and eggs and coffee seems to be her way of life Since the day that she became a truck stop owners wife Midnight, one or two, three o’clock or four Frying eggs and bacon and sweeping out the floor Sweeping out the floor (Instrumental Break) There must be more to life than this, she tells herself again As she hears another semi coming down the lane The squealing brakes, the hissing air, the slammin’ of the door She don't even bother to look at it, she’s heard it all before He wanders in and takes a seat before the bar and grill Ham and eggs and coffee and another order filled He pays the bill, she's caught a glimpse of weary blood shot eyes Like road maps of Australia, they show a million miles Oh, they show a million miles. She sees a million miles of travel in a truckies weary gaze Sees southern winter drizzle and northern summer haze She can see those eyes searching for the roadhouse sign ahead For he needs a cup of coffee and a feed of steak and eggs (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2013)
