Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler)
Dave Loggins
(Semi starts and engine is revved)
Hey, how 'bout ya Alabama
ROLL ON

(CHORUS)
Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on Daddy 'til you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on Mamma like I ask'd ya to do
And roll on 18-wheeler, roll on
ROLL ON

Well, it's Monday mornin'
He kissin' Momma good-bye
He's up and gone with the sun
Daddy drives an 18-wheeler
And he's off on a Midwest run
And three sad faces gather 'round Momma
They ask her when Daddy's comin' home
Daddy drives an 18-wheeler
And they sure miss him when he's gone (Ya, they do)
Ah, but he calls them ev'ry night and tells 'em that he loves them
He taught 'em this song to sing

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Well, it's Wednesday evenin'
Momma's waiting by the phone
It rings but it's not his voice
Seems the highway patrol has found a jackknived rig
in a snow bank in Illinois
But the driver was missin'
and the search had been abandoned
'cause the weather had everything stalled
And they check'd 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 on the phone singin'

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Momma and the children will be waiting up all night long
Thinking nothin' but the worst is comin' with the ringin' of the telephone

Oh, but the Man upstairs was listenin'
when Momma ask'd 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' his song
(Singin')

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on Daddy 'til you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on Momma like I ask'd ya to do
And roll on 18-wheeler

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on Daddy 'til you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on Momma like I ask'd ya to do
And roll on 18-wheeler, roll on
ROLL ON

18-wheeler

18-wheeler

18-wheeler

18-wheeler

ROLL ON

(Semi drives away tootin' horn)
