Gm C Dm And Roll On Eighteen Wheeler, Roll On. Dm Am7 *: Mama and the children will be waiting up all night long, B thinkin' nothin' but the worst is comin' F with the ring-in' of the telephone. Dm Oh, but the Man upstairs was list'nin' B when Mama asked him to bring Daddy home. Gm And when the call came in, it was Daddy on the other end, C askin' her if she had been a-singin' the song, singin': R2: Roll On highway...
