Lyrics
Valdy - Rock N Roll Song

I came into town as a man of renown
A writer of songs about freedom and joy
A hall had been rented and I was presented
As the kind of a singer most folks could enjoy
As I climbed up the stair to the stage standing there
It was obvious something was missing
I could tell by the vibes they wouldn't be bribed

They weren't in the mood to listen, they yelled out
Play me a rock 'n' roll song
Don't play me songs about freedom and joy
Play me a rock 'n' roll song
Or don't play me no song at all
I played them some songs about peace and contentment
And things that I've come to believe in
When I was through to a chorus of boo
Some track star yelled thank God he's leaving

Now someone play me a rock 'n' roll song
I've had it to here with your flowers and beads
Play me a rock 'n' roll song
Or don't play me no song at all
Well if I played you a rock 'n' roll song
How could it be fair 'cause my head isn't there
So I'll leave you with your rock 'n' roll songs
And make my way back to the country

Still I hear play me a rock 'n' roll song
Don't give me music I don't want to hear
Play me a rock 'n' roll song
I should have stayed home with a big case of beer
Play me a rock 'n' roll song

Or don't play me no song at all
