OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
Big wheels rollin,' gotta keep 'em rollin'
Big wheels rollin', movin' on

Allemande the corner, turn partner right hand
4 men star left around you go
Turn thru with the partner, allemande the corner
Dosado and promenade
Big wheels rollin, gotta keep 'em rollin'
Big wheels rollin', movin' on


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

The head two couples promenade go halfway
Come down the middle and do the right & left thru
Square thru tonight four hands will be all right
Go right & left thru, turn that girl you do
Star thru, flutter wheel, it's full around you go
Reverse the flutter, boys get the girl and promenade
You promenade tonight
Everything will be all right
Big wheels rollin', movin' on

Movin' On
 
 

Big wheel's rollin'; Big wheel's rollin', movin' on.
Big wheel's rollin'; gotta keep 'em goin'.
Big wheel's rollin', movin' on.
The white line is a lifeline to the nation.
And men like Kix and Ronnie make it move.
Livin' like a gipsy, always on the go.
Doin' what they best know how to do.
Jammin' gears has got to be a fever.
'Cause men become addicted to the grind. (The grind.)
It takes a special breed to be a truck drivin' man,
And a steady hand to pull that load behind.

Big wheel's rollin'; Big wheel's rollin', movin' on.
Big wheel's rollin'; gotta keep 'em goin'.
Big wheel's rollin', movin' on.
Movin' on, yeah.

All night country music keeps 'em goin',
Kix and Ronnie keep on movin' on.
Hey, big hot cup of coffee, is waitin' up ahead,
An' the rhythm of the highway hums along.
Jammin' gears has got to be a fever.
'Cause men become addicted to the grind.
It takes a special breed to be a truck drivin' man,
And a steady hand to pull that load behind.

Big wheel's rollin'; Big wheel's rollin', movin' on.
Big wheel's rollin'; gotta keep 'em goin'.
Big wheel's rollin', movin' on.
Yeah, oh you been drivin' all night long.
Movin' on.

Why don't you let me take the wheel for a while.
What's that?
Hey, buddy, aren't you supposed to have your eyes open?
We're gone.

Lyrics by Merle Haggard.
Recorded by Merle Haggard.
