Gene Watson - Rollin' Home Lyrics




The sun wasn't even up yet when I left Pittsburgh P.A.
With a load of cold steel headed for that volunteer state
Got a woman on my mind waitin' back in Tennessee
She's savin' all her sweet love for me
And I'm rollin' home
Got to keep these big wheels hummin' their song
And if I'm lucky, by tonight, well
I'll see the lights of Nashville through my windshield
That old sun is sinkin' down
Lord I'm Dixie bound, goin' home

Be two weeks ago tomorrow since she watched me drive away
And I know that she knows that I've been countin' every day
Lord knows, this endless highway sure gets rough on a man's bones
But she makes the leavin' worth it commin' home
And I'm rollin' home
Got to keep these big wheels hummin' their song
And if I'm lucky, by tonight, well
I'll see the lights of Nashville through my windshield
Well, I've got that hammer down
Lord, I'm Dixie bound, I'm goin' home

Well, I'm rollin' home
Got to keep these big wheels hummin' their song
And if I'm lucky, by tonight, well
I'll see the lights of Nashville through my windshield
Well, I've got that hammer down
Lord, I'm Dixie bound, I'm goin' home

Well, I'm rollin' home
Got to keep these big wheels hummin' their song
And if I'm lucky, by tonight, well
I'll see the lights of Nashville through my windshield
Well, I've got that hammer down
Lord, I'm Dixie bound, I'm goin' home, goin' home

  5. Old Smokey

    Love that duel truck :)

  6. Wanda Lee

    I love mr. Gene Watson the man and me and you but it's not plausible there's no way a trucker is going to deadhead from Maine to Texas it's not happening

    Trucker Kev The Paid Tourist

    yes it's very possible a lot of people that have specialized freight especially like boats and a whole lot of other things they get paid and it's in their contract they will deliver and then they will deadhead back

  7. Wanda Lee

    Im on dedicated run to Pa back to tn lobe this song Sugar Cookie out

  8. Pablo

    Impossible to get a better image for preview.

  9. William Creel

    All I can say is this song has made me burn a lot of fuel letting my old truck stretch out her legs! Damn Good Song!!!

  10. Scott Allen

    monfort Lane. greeley to Hunts point . makes my hair tingle thinking about it .

  11. Alexandar Wright

    Thanks for the Colorado Monfort picture...Lots of good trucking memories back in the 70's and 80's.Neat truck pictures moving to Gene's rhythm.

    Trucker Kev The Paid Tourist

    The real hi speed chicken feed days...When they talked about the Monfort Lane they fuckin meant it. Talkin the talk walkin the walk. The old Dodge cabover was cool to see. Think they and Ford had a contest who could build the boxiest ugliest around..LOL

    Ethereal Catholic

    +Trucker Kev The Paid Tourist The double sleeper International cabover brought back memories as a little boy.
    Cool pic but damn they were ugly and rough as hell to ride in all week.

  12. John Heigl

  21. River Roy

    Trucks used to be good now they have gone to shit because they want the trucks to be aerodyne and emission friendly. They look more bad ass when there rollin coal

    Ethereal Catholic

    Modern day Semi's are like driving a Nissan and look ugly as a 82 Datsun,I agree.

  22. Tyler Schmidt

    Trucking has gone to shit.

    Ethereal Catholic

    Wish I could've drove from the the 60's-80's.
    I was just a little boy riding shotgun with my Dad.
    Those era's were badass and today's era pales in comparison.

  23. trucker5933

    You mean the bumper? If you are referring to the chopped bumper that was just a cheaper option on a few company trucks that ordered them that way, some add just a add-on end to them.

  24. Brandon Chappell

    @1:07-1:09 why did they do that to the front fenders, why do the steer wheels have no fenders, ive always wanted to know?

  25. snicker9400

    old truckers never die-they just get their---???---"rebuilt!'

  26. Luskwy2

  31. M28443

    International Transtar Cabover, I drove a few of those, wish I would have taken MORE pics over the years. This particular one looks to have an EXTRA large sleeper on it.

    Ethereal Catholic

    M28443 Old Internationals were junk.

  32. 5trucker

    that KW at 2:12 is a bad ass picture
