You don't hear songs very often about decades of dedicated service leading to a comfortable retirement, but that's what's going on here, as Mattea sings about a truck driver named Charlie who is making his last run after 30 years on the road. This song gets a mention in the movie Rain Man, where Dustin Hoffman's character, who has autism and is prone to making dissociated pop culture references, says, "Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses" during a conversation with his brother, played by Tom Cruise.
