Song Lyrics

I was there that day and saw her crying

After mamma Teddy Bear said 10-4 good bye

She turned off the old CB and just looked at me

And I heard the flood and her tears ran free

And the gratitude shone in the face like the sun

For all those things those big tough truckers had done

A hand full of change and a few dollar bills

But most of all a little crippled boys dream fulfilled

I guess I was mamma Teddy Bear's best friend

I lived next dorr to her and little Teddy Bear since

I don't know when that's why now before my memory grows old the rest of this story just has to be told

I'd come over and sit with Teddy Bear while his mamma was away

And play little games to help him pass the day

In the afternoons he'd wheel that chair over to the radio and go on the air

And one by on e he'd break them all

I never knew a trucker not to answer his call

He'd just grins and ask em not to tell his mamma

But I was pretty sure she knew what was going on

But time has a way of taking it's toll and much too fast mamma Teddy Bear was growing old

I watched as the silver touched her hair and her one aime in life was Teddy Bear

Then I saw another change take place little Teddy Bear was slowly losing the race

I knew it and his mamma knew it too

And there is nothing in this whole world either one of us could do

He'd talk less often on the old CB and there were times when he'd hardly talk with me

He took to sitting in the window and watching the road

And the big 18 wheelers just rolling by with their load

Finally he was too weak to get out of bed and one day he looked at me and said

Would you turn on the radio and go on the air

Tell all my trucker friends what's happened to Teddy Bear

Well the hardest thing I've done in my time

Was to pick up that mike and say breaker 1-9

This is for all you truckers who care

I'm calling for your little friend Teddy Bear

He says to tell you he misses you all and he's awful sorry he can't answer your calls

They all came back and jerked with me

And said they catch him later on the CB

They never did catch Teddy Bear again

Because late one night the angel came

And the last thing he said before he died was

Tell all my trucker friends how I enjoyed the rides

Mamma Teddy Bear couldn't tell them and neither could I

Because each time we look at that radio

We both started to cry

The funeral was pearched at the chaplin and little Teddy Bear started on his last ride

As the precision round the little city square the sounds of a hundred engines filled the air

The truckers had dropped their tailers back somewhere behind

And one by one they fell in line

They all tried to comfort mamma Teddy Bear

And it seems like the warmth of god just filled the air

Slowly they formed a circle around the little grave

And a lot of big men cried that day as they paid their respects

On Teddy Bear's last ride
