Rock 'n' Roll (i Gave You The Best Years Of My Life) Lyrics

Oh, I can still remember when I bought my first guitar
Remember walking from the shop to put it proudly in my
car
And my family listened fifty times to my two song
repertoire
I told my Mom her only son was gonna be a star.

Well I bought all the Beatles records, sounded just
like hall
Or Buddy Holly or Chuck Berry's, seventy-eight in all
And I sat by my record player playing every note they
played
I watched them all on TV, copied every move they made.

Oh, Rock'n'Roll I gave you all the best years of my
life
All the teeny sunny Sundays, all the moonless summer
nights
I was so busy in the bed room, writing love songs to
you
But you were changing your direction and I never even
knew
That I was always just one step behind you.

Well, sixty-six seemed like the year I was really goin'
somewhere
I was living in San Francisco wearing flowers in my
hair
Singing songs of kindness so the world would understand
The guys and me thought wer were more than just another
band.

Oh, Rock'n'Roll I gave you all the best years of my
life
All the crazy, lazy young days, all the magic moony
nights
I was so busy on the road, singing love songs to you
But you were changing your direction and you never even
knew
That I was always just one step behind you.

Seventy-one I was all alone when I met Sarah-Jane
I was trying to go it solo with someone else's band
When she came up to me softly and she took me by the
hand
She listened to my problems and she seemed to
understand.

And she followed me to London to a hundred hotel rooms
To a hundred record companies who didn't like my tunes
And she followed me back to Tennessee where she findly
made me see
I'm just a plain old Country boy and that's all I'll
ever be.

Oh, Rock'n'Roll I gave you all the best years of my
life
All the teeny sunny Sundays, all the moonless summer
nights
Oh, I never knew the magic I'm making it with you
I'm getting along with a Country song doing what I
wanna do
When I was always just one step behind you.
