This ol' wheel keeps on rollin' down the road. [x2]

Gravel and dust flyin' up on the truck tires on a dirt road in Nashville in the summertime in 1996.
I was listenin' to my dad and Johnny Cash doin' chain gang and talkin' trash and smokin' cigarettes.
Wasn't too long before I tasted the salt of the sea that she was still in the love with the guy she left for me.
So she stood there cryin' as I packed my bag, and I knew I was lyin' when i said that I'd be back.

This ol' wheel keeps on rollin' down the road [x2]

Now fast-forward to about two thousand and three, I'm standin' on the corner of Hollywood and Vine.
Just my six-string and me in the capitol building lookin' up at that thing wondrin' when am I gonna get my chance to sing?
When you're faced with that kind of predicament it'd be pretty hard not to get choked up
When every hero I had has died and every band i had broke up.
I'm invited to the party and i just can't come cause i know that once i'm in i can't provide till i'm done.

This ol' wheel keeps on rollin' down the road [x2]

In the last night at ten had some people put a slimy gun to my head and said son this is the end.
I said better get back; I got a army of good friends who will follow me to hell and I've done the same for them.
Besides you're not gonna destroy what we worked so hard to defend. We protect the things we love just like our families did.
We picked a long and windy course and we'd do it again. We picked a dark horse and we're gonna ride it till the end!

This ol' wheel keeps on rollin' down the road [x2]

[guitar solo]



*This was by ear, listening one time through so if there are any mistakes, let me know and i'll fix them.
