Shooter Jennings - This 'Ol Wheel

rate me

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

Oh gravel and dust fly up off of truck tires

down 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 with Savannah and smokin' cigarettes

But it wasn't that long till I tasted the salt of the sea

Cause she was still in love with the guy she left for me so

She stood there cryin' as I packed my pack

And I knew that I was lyin' when I said that I'd be back

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

Now fast forward to about 2000 and 3

I'm standin' on the corner of Hollywood and Vine

Just a six string and me

And that capitol building

Lookin' up at that thing

Wonderin' when am I gonna get my chance to sing

But faced with that kind of predicament it'd be pretty hard not to get choked up

When every hero I've had has died and every band I had broke up

I'm invited to a party and I just can't come cause I know that once I'm in I can't pull out till I'm done

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

In my last nine to ten old Ah Pook waltzed in

Put his slimy gun to my head and said son this is the end

I said you better get back I got an army of good friends

Who would follow me to hell and I've done the same for them

Besides you're not going to destroy what we've worked so hard to defend

We protect the things we love just like our families did

We picked a long and winding 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

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road
