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 

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 

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

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 

I know there's an angel just for rock 'n' rollers 
Just watchin' over you and your daddy tonight 

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
