OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
Roll on highway, roll along
Roll on daddy till you get back home

Left allemande your corner, turn partner right
Men star left and turn it one time tonight
Turn thru at home and go left allemande
You swing your own and promenade the land
So roll on 18-wheeler, roll on


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Those heads promenade halfway around
Walk in and square thru go all the way
Do a right & left thru, veer left and the couples circulate
Girls trade, bend the line, square thru 3
Swing that corner and promenade
He calls them every night and tells them he loves them
He taught them to sing this song


TAG

4 ladies chain across, and back
Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on mama 'til you get back home...roll on

Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler)
 
 

"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.

Lyrics by Dave Loggins.
Recorded by Alabama.
