LYRIC

Daddy Roll 'Em

They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down
They call me daddy, daddy drive ’em
They call me daddy drive ’em on
They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down

Julie gal, can’t you hear me callin’ to you
Julie gal, don’t you understand
Step by step, I can’t stop to count ’em now
Oh, Julie, lead me there by my hand

They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down
They call me daddy, daddy drive ’em
They call me daddy drive ’em on
They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down

One long pull and we’ll make that mountain, Lord
One long pull and we’re on hard ground
So many miles, I can’t count ’em, Lord
Oh, daddy really rolls ’em down

They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down
They call me daddy, daddy drive ’em
They call me daddy drive ’em on
They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down

C’mon now, team, gotta keep it rollin’ now
Ten more miles and we’re into town
Julie gal’s been a long time waitin’ for me
Oh, daddy never let her down

They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down
They call me daddy, daddy drive ’em
They call me daddy drive ’em on
They call me daddy, daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down
