Trivia

The lyrics to the series' theme song are: Barrelin' down the highway, Wheelin' right along. Hear the tires hummin', Hummin' out a song. The rumble of the diesel, The shiftin' of the gears. The rhythm when he's rollin', It's music to his ears. Cannon-ba--ll!, Cannon-ba--ll! Any kind of weather, Any time of day. When the rig is ready, He'll be on his way. He'll carry any cargo, He'll go anywhere. Name the destination, And brother he'll be there. Cannon-ba--ll!, Cannon-ba--ll. See more »
