I Gotta Roll (Larry W. Jones 09/08/2008) (song#5803)

Up ahead is Albuquerque
And our spread in New Mexico
Throwin’ tread from one rear tire
Drowns out the honky tonk radio
I see the red of a shootin’ star
Somewhere far up in the sky
But there ain’t no use in makin’ a wish
As down the road I fly

I gotta roll
Gotta keep on rollin’ down this here road tonight
I gotta roll
Keep on rollin’ til I know everything’s alright

Pit stop at the trucker’s coffee shop
And a piece of pecan pie
Leave a little tip for the whistle stop
And down the road bye bye
Pedal to the metal as down the road
I rattle through the breeze
Feelin’ perky, in Albuquerque
My darlin’s waitin’ for me

– instrumental –

I see the red of a shootin’ star
Somewhere far up in the sky
But there ain’t no use in makin’ a wish
As down the road I fly
I gotta roll
Gotta keep on rollin’ down this here road tonight
I gotta roll
Keep on rollin’ til I know everything’s alright

Pit stop at the trucker’s coffee shop
And a piece of pecan pie
Leave a little tip for the whistle stop
And down the road bye bye
Pedal to the metal as down the road
I rattle through the breeze
Feelin’ perky, in Albuquerque
My darlin’s waitin’ for me

I gotta roll
I gotta roll
Gotta keep on rollin’ down this here road tonight
