Lynyrd Skynyrd - Whiskey Rock-a-Roller Lyrics

I'm headed down a highway got a suitcase by my side
Blue skies hangin' over my head I got five hundred miles to ride
I'm goin' down to Memphis town to play a late night show
I hope the people are ready there 'cause the boys are all ready to go

[Chorus]
Well, I'm a whiskey rock-a-roller
That's what I am
Women, whiskey and miles of travelin'
Is all I understand

I was born a travelin' man and my feets do burn the ground
I don't care for fancy music if your shoes can't shuffle around
I got a hundred women or more and there's no place I call home
The only time I'm satisfied is when I'm on the road

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wonder where will we go

Lord don't take my whiskey, rock and roll
Take me down to Memphis town, bus driver get me there
I got me a queenie she got long brown curly hair
She likes to drink old grandad and her shoes do shuffle around
And every time I see that gal
Lord she wants to take me down

[Chorus]

Sometimes I wonder where will we go
Lord don't take my whiskey, rock and roll
