Song Meaning
Verse 1
Hey little guy, I can't believe you answered the phone
I guess I didn't know you could do that
Lord help me, have I been gone that long
Now, 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
Verse 2
So go 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
Till 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
Verse 3
No, little guy, don't bother your mamma right now
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
Verse 4
And so, go 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
Till 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' out for you and your daddy tonight
Verse 5
I know there's an angel just for rock 'n' rollers
Just watchin' over you and your daddy tonight
Verse 6
Go to sleep, little rock 'n' roller
Go to sleep, little rock 'n' roller
Go to sleep, little rock 'n' roller
Go to sleep, little rock 'n' roller
