  • Hey little guy, I can't believe you answered the phone
    I guess I didn't know you could do that, God help me, have I been gone that long
    I'm in a truck stop somewhere on the Arkansas line
    They got all the big trucks here, boy, you ought to hear the big diesels whine
    No little guy, your daddy won't be home for a while
    It's gonna be another couple weeks and another couple thousand miles
    So got to sleep little rock 'n' roller
    Your daddy's up there knockin' 'em dead tonight
    One of these days when you're a little older
    You can ride the big bus and everything will be alright
    Until that day you got your mama to hold you
    Don't be afraid when she turns out the light
    Cause I know there's an angel just for rock 'n' rollers
    Watchin' over you and your daddy tonight

    No little guy, don't bother your mamma right now
    'Cause I only got a minute and I called to talk to you anyhow
    I Know you miss me, God knows I'm thinkin' 'bout you
    I got your picture in my wallet, it cheers me up sometimes when I'm blue
    Well little guy, I'm gonna have to let you go
    You know it's way past your bedtime, and they're tellin' me we gotta roll Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
