"Hey, how about ya, Alabama? Roll On!"

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 every night and he tells them that he loves them
He taught them 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 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 jack-knifed 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 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':

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.

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'

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 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.)

Eighteen-wheeler.
Eighteen-wheeler.
Eighteen-wheeler.
Eighteen-wheeler
Eighteen-wheeler
Roll on.
