There’s a speed zone ahead, well, alright…”

Rollin’ down the Highway smiling
The Spuds are big on the back of Bud’s rig
And they’re from Prince Edward Island they’re from Prince Edward Island…”

Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on, Mama, like I asked you to do
And roll on, eighteen-wheeler, roll on…”

Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses by Kathy Mattea

And Charlie’s got a good wife 
And after tonight she’ll no longer 
Be countin’ the days…”

Called Wolf Creek Pass
Which is up on the Great Divide…”
