The Palominos - 18 Wheels

I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer
I’ve been drivin’ all night and my eyes are dry of tears
Since my sweet Betty done left me alone
This rollin’ rig has been my home
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

I’ve been drivin’ these roads for what seems all my life
Truck stops and tail lights occupy my life
Then a sweet little Betty bounced into my life
Whoops 3 kids a dog and a wife
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

Well it looked like my truckin’ days had come to an end
I had mortgage bills and PTA meeting to attend
That look in her eye told me something was wrong
Another mile and she’d be gone
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

Well I had some freight that would take me to Abilene
My Betty if you go I’m gonna leave
I had to make me a choice right then
My Betty’s never coming back again
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

Well the moral to the story I think you all can tell
If you see a little Betty don’t buy what she’s trying to sell
When she’s slingin’ that hash and servin’ that joe
She gives you a wink you better go
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer
I’ve been drivin’ all night and my eyes are dry of tears
Since my sweet Betty done left me alone
This rollin’ rig has been my home
I’ve got 18 wheels and an empty bottle of beer

about

The Palominos San Diego, California

This San Diego California based honky-tonk band plays classic west coast style country with vocal harmonies, steady backbeat and a persistently twanging lead guitar. Not contemporary in style, but certainly timeless in sound. Steeped in the classic honky-tonk of yesteryear, The Palominos bring to the stage and era that's long gone but far from forgotten. ... more
