Eighteen Wheels And A Dozen Roses    (1987)

Charlie's got a gold watch, don't seem like a whole lot,
After thirty years of drivin', up and down the interstate.
But Charlie's had a good life, and Charlie's got a good wife.
And after tonight she'll no longer, be countin' the days.

Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses;
Ten more miles on his four day run.
A few more songs from the all-night radio,
Then he'll spend the rest of his life,
With the one that he loves.

They'll buy a Winnebago, set out to find America.
They'll do a lot of catchin' up, a little at a time.
With pieces of the old dream, they're gonna light the old flame.
Doin' what they please, leavin' every reason behind.

Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses,
Ten more miles on his four day run.
A few more songs from the all night radio,
Then he'll spend the rest of his life,
With the one that he loves.

Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses,
Ten more miles on his four day run.
A few more songs from the all night radio,
Then he'll spend the rest of his life,
With the one that he loves.
