as a truck driver...I decided to move my riff on Truck Driving Songs from his page on this same topic to here... I hope others will contribute favorites in his honor!
I'm a Truck!
And a homegrown Canadian one! And the Truck got...
I haven't had
A chance to sleep
And when I wake
I wake with your dreams
I guess my pillow
Holds some kind of key
To your peace
I wouldn't trade your love for all the candy

and his music is just beautiful,
"Give Me Love"
Give me love like her,
'Cause lately I've been waking up alone,
Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt,
Told you I'd let them go,
And that I'll fight my corner,
Maybe tonight I'll call ya,
After my blood turns into alcohol,
