Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler)

Original and similar lyrics
[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.) 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 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.) 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 jackknifed 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 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'. [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 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'. [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...

Daddy's Little Pumpkin

JOHN PRINE "The Missing Years"
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 Why it's quarter past eleven And you're sleeping on the bedroom floor I can see the fire burning Burning right behind your eyes I can see the fire burning Burning right behind your eyes You must of swallowed a candle Or some other kind of surprise I'm going down to Memphis I got three hundred dollars in cash I'm going down to Memphis I got three hundred dollars in cash All the women in Memphis Want to see how long my money will last I'm going downtown I'm gonna to rattle somebody's cage I'm going downtown I'm gonna rattle somebody's cage I'm gonna beat on my guitar And strut all around the stage If you see my baby coming Don't tell her that her daddy's in jail If you see my baby coming Don't you tell her that her daddy's in jail She'd sell her 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 You must be daddy's little pumpkin I can tell by the way you roll You never do nothing To save your doggone soul.

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.

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

Doesn't Anybody Know My Name

WAYLON JENNINGS "Leavin' Town"
I've been away for so long Fought a war that's come and gone Doesn't anybody know my name? My sister upped and wed Mom was sick and took to bed And my old dog Red's gone lame. Please tell me if you can What time the trains roll in? (Two-ten, six-eighteen) ten-forty-four. This old house is falling down There ain't no need in me for hanging round Doesn't anybody know my name? The girl I left behind She's gone with this friend of mine I don't have to see a sign To know things ain't the same. Please tell me if you can What time the trains roll in? (Two-ten, six-eighteen) ten-forty-four. You can't get far away On just a soldier's pay Doesn't anybody know my name? Used to be when I could see Everybody wanted me Guess nobody cares to see A blind man catch a train. Please tell me if you can What time the trains roll in? (Two-ten, six-eighteen) ten-forty-four...
