Big Wheels In The Moonlight

In the style of

Dan Seals

Lyrics

i came from a town
that was so small
you looked both ways
you could see it all

all i wanted was
some way out
every evenin'
i'd slip into town

and stand around
by the caution light
and watch the
big trucks rollin' by
to me it was
a beautiful sight
big wheels
in the moonlight

well i had
a case of wanderlust
i'd lie awake
with the windows up

out on highway 59
i could hear some
big ol' diesel whine
she was goin' through
all the gears
a-headed out
to who knows where

fell asleep
most every night
a-dreamin' 'bout
big wheels
in the moonlight

and i wanna
put my life
on the center line
and i wanna
see the world
before i die

and i know
that there's a peace
i'll never find
'cause those
big ol' wheels
keep a-rollin'
through my mind

how i got here
it's hard to say
'cause so many things
got in my way
can't complain about
all i've got

kids and a wife
and a regular job
but at night
when i'm sittin' here
all alone in the
livin' room chair

sometimes
i close my eyes
and see big wheels
in the moonlight

and i wanna
put my life
on the center line
and i wanna
see the world
before i die

and i know
that there's a peace
i'll never find
'cause those
big old wheels
keep a-rollin'
through my mind

and i wanna
put my life
on the center line
and i wanna
see the world
before i die

and i know
that there's a peace
i'll never find
'cause those
big old wheels
keep a-rollin'
through my mind

yes those
big old wheels
keep a-rollin'
through my mind
