We've been driving all night long
Just to reach our destination in your town
We've come five hundred miles
Everyone's asleep there's not a sound

Ooh, eighteen wheels a-rolling
Eighteen wheels a-rolling round and round

Please Mister Driver, won't you pull over here
We're really hungry
Well, we'll have 14 steak and eggs
14 orange juice and 14 cups of coffee

Let's get back on the bus
This is one place that I really wanna see

Well, we're 18 Miles from Memphis
18 Miles from Memphis
Yeah, 18 Miles from Memphis
18 Miles from Memphis

Got a rocket in my pocket and I hit the fuse
Taking off in your direction, have you heard the news?
We're just 18 Miles from Memphis
And we won't leave 'til I rocked you all

Alabama, Missisippi, Florida
Louisiana, big 'ol Texas
From New England down to Georgia
Kansas City, Colorado, Californy

Well, it's the last night of our tour
We're gonna rock you thru the roof, just wait and see

Yeah, we're 18 Miles from Memphis
18 Miles from Memphis
Ooh, 18 Miles from Memphis
18 Miles from Memphis

Yeah, 18 Miles from Memphis
18 Miles from Memphis
Ooh, 18 Miles from Memphis
18 Miles from Memphis

Well, we're 18 Miles from Memphis
And we won't leave 'til we rocked you all
