Bud the Spud (Tom Connors) cho: Its Bud the Spud from the bright red mud Rollin' down the highway smilin' The spuds are big on the back of Bud's rig They're from Prince Edward Island They're from Prince Edward Island From Charlottetown or from Summerside They load him down for the big long ride He jumps in the cab and he's off with a load o' potatoes He's gotta catch the boat to make mainland time. Then he heads up that old New Brunswick line Through Montreal he comes just a flying The cops 'ave been lookin for the son-of- a- gun That's been rippin' the tar off the 401 They know the name of the truck shines out in the sun ""Green Gables"" But he hits Toronto and at seven o'clock And when he backs them up again' the terminal dock The boys gather round just to hear him talk About another big load of potatoes I know a lot of people from east to west That like's the spuds from the Island best Because they'll stand up to the hardest test Right on the table. So when you see that big truck a rolling by Wave your hand or kinda wink your eye. Cause that's bud the spud from old PEI With another big load of potatoes Copyright Tom Connors BV OCT98
