Roll On Eighteen Wheeler

Song Author Dave Loggins Lyrics by: Dave Loggins Performer: Alabama Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Roll On highway Roll On a[F]long
[C]Roll On daddy till you get back [F]home
[C]Roll on family Roll On [F]crew
[C]Roll On mama like I asked you to do
And [Dm]Roll On Eighteen [G7]Wheeler Roll [C]On  

Well it's Monday morning he's [F]kissing mama goodbye
He's up and gone with the [Am]sun   
[F]Daddy drives an eighteen wheeler
And he's off on a Midwest [C]run  

And three sad faces gather round mama
They ask her when daddy's coming [Am]home   
Daddy drives an [F]eighteen wheeler
And they sure miss him when he's [C]gone
Ah but he [F]calls 'em every [Em]night and [D7]tells 'em
That he loves [G7]them   

He taught 'em this song to sing

[C]Roll On highway Roll On a[F]long
[C]Roll On daddy till you get back [F]home
[C]Roll on family Roll On [F]crew
[C]Roll On mama like I asked you to do
And [Dm]Roll On Eighteen [G7]Wheeler Roll [C]On  

[F]Well it's Wednesday[C] evening

Mama's waiting by the phone
It rings but it's not his [Am]voice
Seems the [F]highway patrol has found a jack-knifed rig
In a snow bank in Ill[C]inois

But the driver was missing

And the search had been abandoned
Cause the weather had everything [Am]stalled
And they had [F]checked all the houses and the local motels
When they had some more news they'd c[C]all  
And she told [F]them when they [Em]found him
To tell [F]him that she [G7]loved him

And she hung up the phone singing

[C]Roll On highway Roll On a[F]long
[C]Roll On daddy till you get back [F]home
[C]Roll on family Roll On [F]crew
[C]Roll On mama like I asked you to do
And [Dm]Roll On Eighteen [G7]Wheeler Roll [C]On  

Mama and the children will be [Em]waiting up all night long
Thinking [F]nothing but the worst is coming
With the ring[C]ing of the telephone
Oh but the [Am]Man upstairs was listening
When Mama [F]asked him to bring Daddy home
And when the [Dm]call came in it was Daddy on the other end
[G7]Asking her if she had been a singing the song singing

[C]Roll On highway Roll On a[F]long
[C]Roll On daddy till you get back [F]home
[C]Roll on family Roll On [F]crew
[C]Roll On mama like I asked you to do
And [Dm]Roll On Eighteen [G7]Wheeler Roll [C]On  

[C]Eighteen whee[F]ler  
[C]Eighteen whee[F]ler  
[C]Eighteen whee[F]ler  
[C]Eighteen whee[F]ler  
[C]Roll On

Roll On highway Roll On along
Roll On daddy till you get back home
Roll on family Roll On crew
Roll On mama like I asked you to do
And Roll On Eighteen Wheeler Roll On

Well it's Monday morning he's kissing mama goodbye
He's up and gone with the sun
Daddy drives an eighteen wheeler
And he's off on a Midwest run

And three sad faces gather round mama
They ask her when daddy's coming home
Daddy drives an eighteen wheeler
And they sure miss him when he's gone
Ah but he calls 'em every night and tells 'em
That he loves them

He taught 'em 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 mama like I asked you to do
And Roll On Eighteen Wheeler Roll On

Well it's Wednesday evening

Mama's waiting 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 missing

And the search had been abandoned
Cause 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 singing

Roll On highway Roll On along
Roll On daddy till you get back home
Roll on family Roll On crew
Roll On mama like I asked you to do
And Roll On Eighteen Wheeler Roll On

Mama and the children will be waiting up all night long
Thinking nothing but the worst is coming
With the ringing of the telephone
Oh but the Man upstairs was listening
When Mama asked him to bring Daddy home
And when the call came in it was Daddy on the other end
Asking her if she had been a singing the song singing

Roll On highway Roll On along
Roll On daddy till you get back home
Roll on family Roll On crew
Roll On mama like I asked you to do
And Roll On Eighteen Wheeler Roll On

Eighteen wheeler
Eighteen wheeler
Eighteen wheeler
Eighteen wheeler
Roll On
