Eignteen Wheels And A Dozen Roses
As preformed by Kathy Mattea

Capo 1

You can try putting the walk from G to Em in there.  Sounds good.


I think the G chord on this song sounds best played 3 2 0 0 3 3. 
But do what makes you happy

G                           C
Charlie's got a gold watch, don't seem like a whole lot, 
      D                       C                      G
After thirty years of drivin' up and down the interstate. 
But Charlie's had a good life, and Charlie's got a good wife. 
    Am                      C                       D
And after tonight she'll no longer, be countin' the days. 

         C                  G
Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
         Em           A        D
Ten more miles on his four day run. 
           C                        G        C
A few more songs from the all-night radio,
           G         Bm          C   
Then he'll spend the rest of his life,
         D           G
With the one that he loves. 

G                            C
They'll buy a Winnebago, set out to find America. 
        D                    C                 G
They'll do a lot of catchin' up, a little at a time.
With pieces of the old dream, they're gonna light the old flame. 
Am                              C                  D
Doin' what they please, leavin' every other reason behind.
