I learned from Rock and Roll

Ive had the music in me as long as I can recall
4 years old mama caught me scrawling lyrics on the wall
The music it came to me like a stranger in the night
When things are all askew in life The music makes it right
The melodies flow through me The lyrics touch my soul
Everything i ever need to know I learned from rock n roll.

John taught me to imagine, and that all I need is love
Ronnie told me to be a simple man and believe in God above
Robert Johnson gave me rhythm that touched me hard and deep
Music taught me lessons that through my life I keep
it carries me like a fragrance in the early morning breeze
It moves me like a storm that is raging in the trees

I would stay up late at night, with my AM radio
Listening for a favorite song ,Hoping it would show
Lessons I’ve learned, and carried, the music was my cue
Giving me direction when I knew not what to do
Many times it was a savior, as it cut deep and touched my soul
I believe that I can say that I was saved by rock and roll

I remember Mick told me, you can’t always get what you want
Bon was out there yelling, It’s a long way to the top
Roger had us join together, and not get fooled again
James Taylor took me to Carolina, and told me I had a friend
it carries me like a fragrance in the early morning breeze
It moves me like a storm that is raging in the trees

I have had the music in me since the first day I could hear
My soul becomes so weary if I do not have it near
I have had the music in me and it helps me find my way
In the darkest depths of night it gets me through another day
I have had the music in me, way down deep in my soul
and everything I ever needed to know I learned from rock n roll.
