Red Sovine – King Of The Open Road lyrics

Roll big wheels roll roll big wheels roll
Roll big wheels roll roll big wheels roll
King of the open road

Big wheels you're singing as you're rolling along
Just like Hank Snow there Movin' On
So roll big wheels roll so roll big wheels roll
So roll big wheels roll king of the open road

I'm leavin' out of Memphis goin' to Nashville creek
Tonight I'm gonna sittin' on the Grand Ole Opry
So roll big wheels roll....
[ guitar ]
Out of Loui'ville there's a truck stop with a pretty little miss
She brings me a cup of coffee while she's doin' a twist
So roll big wheels roll....

The big town of Detroit is the end of my run
That's where I'll drop my load and then I'll have me so fun
So roll big wheels roll....
