Eighteen Wheels And A Dozen Roses
Kathy Mattea Lyrics


Charlie's got a gold watch
Don't seem like a whole lot
After thirty years of drivin'
Up and down the interstate
But Charlie's had a good life
And Charlie's got a good wife
And after tonight she'll no longer
Be countin' the days

Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
Ten more miles on his four day run
A few more songs from the all night radio
And he'll spend the rest of his life
With the one that he loves

They'll buy a Winnebago
Set out to find America
They'll do a lotta catchin' up
A little at a time

With pieces of the old dream
They're gonna light the old flame
Doin' what they please
Leavin' every other reason behind

Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
Ten more miles on his four day run
A few more songs from the all night radio
And he'll spend the rest of his life
With the one that he loves

Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
Ten more miles on his four day run
A few more songs from the all night radio
And he'll spend the rest of his life
With the one that he loves

Truckers are so under appreciated! With out them our Country would be at a standstill! They are what keeps this country working! Needed even more with this Covid! God Bless them all!

Sorry but Smokey exists for one thing. To be a tax collector.

This is my theme song. Iโ€™ve spent 20 years on the road. Just a few more songs on the all night radio, and I will spend the rest of my life with the one that I love.

Hello Brian.. how are you doing?

Michael Caplan

My utmost respect goes to our truck drivers who keep our country moving. Also, they just don't make em like Kathy anymore. Pure classic country music gold. A wonderful singer

Susan Bennett

They donโ€™t make truckers like they used to either!
