I Will Rock and Roll With You

They used to call me rockabilly. All of us ran through

When Elvis opened up the door. Boo-bop-a-lop-bam-boo.

I didn’t ever play much rock and roll,

‘Cause I got so much country in my soul.

But I’m a different man for lovin’ you,

And I’d take a shot at what you asked me to.

And, baby, I will rock and roll with you, if I have to.

Memphis, nineteen fifty-five on Union Avenue;

Carl and Jerry and Charlie and Roy and Billy Riley too.

A new sun risin’ on the way we sing,

And a new world of weirdos waitin’ in the wings.

But I love you, and though I’m past forty-two,

There are still a few things yet I didn’t do.

And, baby, I will rock and roll with you, if I have to.
