Roll on big mama

Roll on big mama
(Roll on)
I like the way you sing
Roll on big mama
(Roll on)
The night time lets her breathe

Well, the feel of the wheel delivers me
From a life where I don't wanna be
And the diesel smoke with every stroke
Sings a song with a heavy note

And ramblin’ is the life I chose
Sittin’ here between the doors
And the yellow line a keepin’ time
The things that's a runnin’ through my mind
Through my mind

Roll on big mama
(Roll on)
I like the way you roll
Roll on big mama
(Roll on)
You are my very soul

On through the snow and the drivin’ rain
To the forty-below in Banger Maine
To the hundred-and-ten in the Texas sun
There ain't no road that we ain't run

Up through the Colorado mountain tops
Down to the desert where Reno stops
There ain't no road that we ain't seen
We ain't seen

Roll on big mama
(Roll on)
You're singing out my song
Roll on big mama
(Roll on)
The highway is our home

Roll on big mama
(Roll on)

Hey, anybody got a copy on this silver roadhog?
What's the smokey situation down the way, boys?
My, they're fine, I'm a comin’, I'm a comin’

    Banger Maine is spelled "Bangor". There is a missing verse which comes after Down to the desert where Reno stops, "North to the green of Cour d'Alene", there ain't no...
    "My, they're fine" should be "Mighty Fine!"
