Big Wheels Roll At Midnight (Larry W Jones 06/18/2019) (song #7539)

Well, I grew up in a town called Little
I saw both ends standing in the middle
I’d sneak around downtown in the moonlight
And watch those great big wheels roll at midnight

I caught a big ‘ol case of restlessness
And both my feet gave chase to carelessness
No care I gave as to the wrong or right
I had to make big wheels roll at midnight

Well, I put my eye on the centerline
And I left that town like a man who’s blind
Though I knew I would never find daylight
Making eighteen big wheels roll at midnight

(Instrumental)

Well, I put my eye on the centerline
And I left that town like a man who’s blind
Though I knew I would never find daylight
Making eighteen big wheels roll at midnight

I’m still here driving on the long highway
Just hope the wife and kids back home don’t stray
When this run’s done I’ve got a song to write
About making big wheels roll at midnight

When this run’s done I’ve got a song to write
About making big wheels roll at midnight
