"18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses" as written by and Paul/nelson Nelson....
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

[Chorus]
Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
Ten more miles on his four day run
A few more songs from the all-night radio
Then 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 lot of 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 reason behind

[Chorus x 2]
