New Riders Of The Purple Sage - Carl Perkins Wears The Crown lyrics

Falzarano

Now they say that Elvis is the king of rock and roll
And James Brown is the godfather of soul
And Bob Wills is the king of Texas swing
You talk about Chicago blues, Muddy Waters wears the ring
But when it comes to that Rockabilly sound
Carl Perkins wears the crown
They say that old Hank done it his way
And nobody sang them blues like Billy Holiday
You know they say that Jimi, well he could kiss the sky
Still no ones got the fire like Buddy Guy
But when it comes to that Rockabilly sound
Carl Perkins wears the crown
Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and George Jones
Roy Orbison, Woody Guthrie, The Beatles and The Stones
Garcia, Jerry Lee and Professor Longhair
You look at the top of the greatest ever list and they’ll all be there
But when it comes to that Rockabilly sound
Carl Perkins wears the crown
Carl Perkins wears the crown
Carl Perkins wears the crown
I'm just sitting here wondering
Would a matchbox hold my clothes?
Put Your Cat Clothes On
Let’s go Bopping the Blues
You wear your Pink Pedal Pushers
I’ll wear my Blue Suede Shoes
And we’ll get gone, gone ,gone
gone, gone, gone
Carl Perkins wears the crown
Carl Perkins wears the crown
