"Long Haul" from the album "Long Haul"
Written and Performed by Effron White.

Recommended if you like John Prine, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Guy Clark and/or Effron White.

Effron White's landmark, signature song. Extensive BBC airplay of the recording cut by Charlie Roth brought Roth's CD, "Broken Ground" to #6 on the Euro Americana charts.
This is one of White's most requested songs at his shows. You can see the emotional impact move through the audience, as the room quiets down to hear all the words in this storyteller's opus. White tells the tale of a long haul trucker who is almost at the end of his run, in life, and realizes he has some loose ends to tie up before he goes on that last, long haul.
A must have for any EFFRON-ite.

"Long Haul" from the album "Long Haul"
Written and performed by Effron White

He pulls into Waco it’s Saturday night
He finds a little bar and parks his big rig out back
He buys a shot of whiskey and a cold Fat Tire
It’s been a long haul
He engages the bartender in big small talk
How he learned to shift gears before he could walk
He shakes a cigarette from a crumpled Camel pack
It dangles from his lip as he strikes his last match
Then he takes a long draw as his eyelids fall
And the smoke ring he blows drifts toward the back wall
It’s been a long haul
Long haul
He says his whole life has been like that smoke ring
Slowly drifting down and disintegrating
His ex took the baby when he was home on a binge
They’re somewhere up north he ain’t seen ‘em since then
Got a letter from that thirty year old kid the other day
Said she Googled him up she’d like to meet him someday
He drops an ash in his empty shot glass
Like one of many bridges he burned in his past
Should’ve quit the cancer sticks a long time ago
But it’s too late now they’ve taken their toll
It’s been a long haul
Long haul
I’ve been on the road now since I was eighteen
Nicotined and caffeined and dropping Visine
I’m fifty-four now and I can’t stand to see
Where three million miles has finally brought me
He grinds his cigarette butt in the bottom of the glass
Drinks up his beer says I better get off my ass
I’ve got someone to meet that I’d like to get to know
Hey buddy got a match? I’m headin’ up that road
I’ve got a long haul
Long Haul
It’s been a long haul
Long haul
