Sunny Day in Green Bay

Written by Stewart Acuff

Beautiful sunny day in Green Bay

Bound for Minneapolis today

Books to sell, some things to say

Tomorrow when I get to Rochester

Rochester, Minnesota Fats and pool land

Me and a truck driving partner and

Buddy almost won too many games one night

Turns out Rochester boys don’t like truck drivin’ trash takin’ their money

So we bought a round for everyone

Ate a bite

Got back on the road

Pushin’ that mechanical mule

With just another load.
