Alabama - Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler)

Roll On

Roll on highway, roll on along

Roll on daddy till you get back home

Roll on family, roll on crew

Roll on momma like I asked you to do

And roll on eighteen-wheeler roll on (roll on)

Well it's Monday morning, he's kissin' momma goodbye

He's up and gone with the sun

Daddy drives an eighteen-wheeler

And he's off on a midwest run

As three sad faces gather 'round momma

They ask her when daddy's comin' home

Daddy drives an eighteen-wheeler

And they sure miss him when he's gone (yeah they do)

Ah, but he calls them every night and he tells them that he loves them

He taught them this song to sing

Roll on highway, roll on along

Roll on daddy till you get back home

Roll on family, roll on crew

Roll on momma like I asked you to do

And roll on eighteen-wheeler, roll on (roll on)

Well it's Wednesday evening, momma's waitin' by the phone

It rings but it's not his voice

Seems the highway patrol has found a jack-knifed rig

In a snow bank in Illinois

But the driver was missin' and the search had been abandoned

For the weather had everything stalled

And they had checked all the houses and the local motels

When they had some more news they'd call

And she told them when they found him to tell him that she loved him

And she hung up the phone singin'

Roll on highway, roll on along

Roll on daddy till you get back home

Roll on family, roll on crew

Roll on momma like I asked you to do

And roll on eighteen-wheeler roll on

Momma and the children will be waiting up all night long

Thinkin' nothing but the worst is comin'

With the ringin' of the telephone

Oh, but the man upstairs was listening

When momma asked him to bring daddy home

And when the call came in it was daddy on the other end

Askin' her if she had been singin' the song, singin'

Roll on highway, roll on along

Roll on daddy till you get back home

Roll on family, roll on crew

Roll on momma like I asked you to do

And roll on eighteen-wheeler

Roll on highway, roll on along

Roll on daddy till you get back home

Roll on family, roll on crew

Roll on momma like I asked you to do

And roll on eighteen-wheeler, roll on (roll on)

Eighteen-wheeler

Eighteen-wheeler

Eighteen-wheeler

Eighteen-wheeler

Roll on

Roll on

Roll on

Roll on
