Diesel Truck Sounds - or random non musical tracks?

Recommended Posts

Inspired by the excellent CHUNK Y/T post on the Flying Burrito Bros, Six Days on the Road... We are going to do that tune! Where can I find BIG DIESEL TRUCK sounds to record and have the soundman start off the tune for us!!! We will start and end the song with those at BIG VOLUME!!!....is there anywhere,short of recording at a truck stop? to get these kinds of random tracks?? I think we need some Tire sounds, sirens, gear shifting RPM's etc.

 

I pulled out of Pittsburgh rolling down the Eastern seaboard

I've got my diesel wound up and she's running like never before

There's a speed zone ahead on right and I ain't see a cop all night

Six days on the road and now I'm gonna make it home tonight

 

I got a ten forward gears and a Georgia overdrive

I take little white pills and my eyes are open wide

I just passed a "Gimmy" and a "White"

I've been smokin' everything in sight

Six days on the road and now I'm gonna make it home tonight

 

Well it seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye

And I can have a lot of women but I'm not like some other guys

I can find one to hold me tight

But I could never make believe it's alright

Six days on the road and now I'm gonna make it home tonight

 

Now the ICC's been a-checkin' on down the line

I'm a little overweight and my log book's way behind

Nothing bothers me tonight

I can dodge all them scales all right

Six days on the road and now I'm gonna make it home tonight

 

Well my rig's a little low, but that don't mean she's slow

got the stacks blowin' fire and the smoke's blowing black as coal

My hometown's coming in sight

If you think I'm happy, you're right

Six days on the road and now I'm gonna make it home tonight

There's a bunch of stuff on google

This one's not a bad truck

I get the feeling that with some of 'em, you'd have to do a bit of tweaking. But they're not bad for starters.

Yeah, I think we can make this into a little production number, I'm thinking of some headlights behind us with blinking turn signals flashing below them! :) I've got a siren somewhere around here we used to use for some KISS things we used to do... This would be a great one for a auto show gig!! :) too.
