'Charlie got a gold watch'...the opening line for one of the number one songs by Kathy Mattea.

It was a song about Charlie, a truck driver that was retiring after 30 years on the road to spend the rest of his time with his wife.  He got a gold watch as his retirement gift. The song was selected as Single and Song of the Year for the Academy of Country Music, and Single of the Year (award to the artist) by the Country Music Association.  Here's your KLAW Classic, 'Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses'.
