Tommy Collins – Roll Truck Roll lyrics

I'm going down to Feather River Canyon I gotta go down Donner Summit is closed
Another eighty miles and I sure am lonesome cause I'll be late gettin' home
Roll truck roll take me to my baby I'm tired of bein' alone
Roll truck roll I wanna see my baby roll me truck roll me on home

One of these days I'm gonna quit this old road when I've saved enough money
Gonna buy me a place back home and live a little just me and my kids and my honey
Mama said that little Tom is not doing too well in school
Said he keeps talking about his daddy that he hardly knows
The teacher said that he just sits at his desk all day and draws the pictures of trucks
I guess I know what that means and what it shows
Why I'm not home three months out of the year
And here lately it's showing on me too
I saw a lot of the country at first and I really like it then
But anymore there's just none of it new
Ooh what a long old ball this has been
And had rain most of the way and now it's beginning to pour
Sure looks cold with that wind blowing up the canyon
But I gotta keep my spirits up so I guess I'll just sing a little more
I'm going down to Feather River Canyon...
Roll me truck roll me on home
