Lyrics
CALIFORNIA GRAPEVINE
By
Winston Montgomery


Verse 1:
There's a blizzard on the summit
Like to blow me off the road
But if I stop I'll miss my deadline in LA
I don't like the way my rig is acting
I got 18 wheels and zero traction
Sliding sideways down the Grapevine on I-5

Verse 2:
I got diesel in my veins
A road map of America in my brain
And every highway from coast to coast has felt my wheels
I've driven rigs over thirty years
Only one road that I truly fear
That Tejon Pass Grapevine on I-5

Chorus:
Lord, I hate to run that Grapevine, it's the toughest grade I know
You get mudslides, fog and forest fires
In the summer, ice and snow
It burns your engine climbing up
Burns your brakes rolling down
California Grapevine, it's the roughest road around

Verse 3:
So I let her drift towards the center line
Dodging cars as they spun on by
Snugged her up against the divider soft as I could
It straightened me out, kept my wheels in line
And I rode it to LA in record time
For once I beat that Grapevine on I-5





Verse 4:
I've ridden the bad roads and the good
Hauled what I shouldn't and what I should
I've driven for money and I've driven for love
Seen every weather that God can make
Felt the earth move and the bedrock shake
But nothing gets my attention like that Grapevine on I-5

Chorus:
Lord, I hate to run that Grapevine, it's the toughest road I know
You get mudslides, fog and forest fires
In the summer, ice and snow
It burns your engine going up
Burns your brakes going down
California Grapevine, it's the roughest road around
