(chorus) 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) 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 everynight and he tells them that he loves them And he taught them this song to sing (chorus) Roll on highway, Roll on along Roll on daddy till ya 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) 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 jacknifed 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 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' (chorus) Roll on highway, roll on along Roll on daddy till ya 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 words just 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' (chorus) Roll on highway, roll on along Roll on daddy till ya get back home Roll on family, roll on crew Roll on momma like I asked you to do And roll on eighteen-wheeler (chorus) Roll on highway, roll on along Roll on daddy till ya 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

Letter To My Daughters

UNCLE KRACKER "No Stranger To Shame"
I'm sending this letter I'll mail it today There's so many things I've been wanting to say Your mom sent some pictures And my how you've grown Rock n roll fathers are never at home I'm writing this letter I made you a song I promised your mom that I'd write while I'm gone You say daddy come home Well you'll just have to wait I hope when I get there that it won't be too late Skylar I just missed your first step today I have no excuses and nothing to say I live on a bus with a rock n roll band I hope when your older that you'll understand I'm coming home soon This tour's almost through I promise I'll try to spend more time with you You say daddy come home You'll just have to wait I hope when I get there that it won't be too late Now Madison Blue you know I love you too Not a single day passes that I don't think of you I'm running on empty and a mountain so high I can pull out your pictures and look in your eyes I long for the day when your old man comes home It kills me to hear you say daddy don't go You say daddy come home You'll just have to wait I hope when I get there that it won't be too late Daddy's at work now he's trying to pay bills Ego's and assholes are part of my deal I make some money and I have some fun The tax man he cometh and I'm back to square one Don't worry bout your daddy You girls be good Give a kiss to your mother I sure wish I could This life has it's moments I'm not always sad Take care and I love you Your rock n roll dad

My Saving Grace

JAMEY JOHNSON "The Dollar"
Daddy's bourbon breath was strong as gasoline, An' it seemed to fuel the rage he had inside. He'd come home just burnin', Mad an' drunk an' mean an' raisin' hell on a Saturday night. Momma'd lock us up in her bedroom, He'd be lyin' in the hallway on our way to Sunday school. They both, in their own way became my savin' grace. Daddy passed out with his demons: Momma passed the offerin' plate. An' she'd cry out to Heaven: 'Protect this son of mine' While Daddy kept the devil off my back, By takin' up his time. Momma said: "Nobody's perfect," as we walked into Church, To ask the Good Lord to forgive him, again. I still recall that sermon, I hung on every word. That's when I learned just exactly what a Father really meant. And the Angels and the people gathered round, I was standin' in that water when that Preacher laid me down. They both, in their own way became my savin' grace. Daddy passed out with his demons: Momma passed the offerin' plate. An' she'd cry out to Heaven: "Protect this son of mine," While Daddy kept the devil off my back, By takin' up his time. An' Daddy kept the devil off my back, By takin' up his time.

A Chance In Hell

James Bonamy "Roots And Wings"
(R. Springer/T. Martin) Daddy was a drinkin' man He never took to preachin' Said he found heaven in a drink Well momma was a bible totin', God fearin' Christian Would tell the devil to his fate Exactly what she thinks As far as daddy knew Momma couldn't drive So every Sunday morning he'd give us a ride Well he'd wait out in the car Drinkin' Jim Beam from a sack But as the summer days grew hotter He found a pew in the back Daddy never had a chance in hell Somethin' that my momma knew so well While everybody else gave up Momma wore him down with love Daddy never had a chance in hell Well, Summer came and went But he stayed in the back row Blamin' it on the cold north wind outside Well I guess that explained The flannel shirt and jack But he had no explanation When momma asked about his tie He'd move up a little closer With every passing year He said it was because He simply couldn't hear I never thought that Dad would ever Draw a sober breath Much less lead us all in prayer When we laid mom to rest Daddy never had a chance in hell Somethin' that my momma knew so well While everybody else gave up Momma wore him down with love Daddy never had a chance in hell While everybody else gave up Momma wore him down with love Daddy never had a chance in hell

Daddy's Little Pumpkin

JOSH RITTER "Live At The Record Exchange EP"
You must be daddy’s little pumpkin I can tell by the way you roll You must be daddy’s little pumpkin I can tell by the way you roll It’s quarter past eleven And you’re sleeping on the bedroom floor I can feel the fire burning Burning right behind your eyes Feel the fire burning Burning right behind your eyes You must’ve swallowed a candle Or some other kind of surprise I’m going down to Memphis I got three hundred dollars in cash Goin’ down to Memphis I got three hundred dollars in cash All the women in Memphis Gonna see how long my money can last I’m going down to Memphis Gonna rattle somebody’s cage I’m going down to Memphis Gonna rattle somebody’s cage I’m gonna beat on my guitar And strut all around the stage You must be daddy’s little pumpkin I can tell by the way you roll And if you see my baby coming Don’t tell her that her daddy’s in jail Ah you’d sell little pumpkin just to raise Her sweet daddy’s bail You must be daddy’s little pumpkin I can tell by the way you roll Daddy’s little pumpkin I can tell by the way you roll You never do nothing Just to save your goddamn soul
