Dave Dudley – Rollin’ Rig Lyrics

(Verse 1)
Climbed aboard a semi truck when I was just a kid
And I’ve seen the weather that I curse today
But still I’m glad I did
You see, I know this work, I mean, it’s kinda my thing
Give me a load of highway
And a regular rig
And I’m rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
(Chorus)
I wanna keep on rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Keep me rollin’
(Verse 2)
And tied to the thunderous roar
In the wheel of a truck on the go
And I mean rollin’
On rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Red, I gotta be rollin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
(Chorus)
I wanna keep on rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Keep me rollin’
(Verse 3)
My whole life a simple one
My world ain’t that big
It might be small, but I’ve seen it all
From the back of a rolling rig
(Chorus)
I wanna keep on rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Keep me rollin’
(Verse 4)
Been through towns and cities
Seen the folks come and go
But I’m glad to get back on the highway
Where I can keep on rollin’
(Chorus)
I wanna keep on rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Keep me rollin’
(Outro)
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Keep me rollin’
