Valdy - Rock And Roll Song lyrics

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 a kind of a singer that all could enjoy

As I climbed up the stair to the stage that was 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 and roll song
Don't give me songs about freedom and joy
Play me a rock and roll song
Or don't play me no song at all

I played them some songs about peace and contentment
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 and roll song
I've had it to here with your flowers and beads
Play me a rock and roll song
Or don't play me no song at all

Well, if I played you a rock and roll song
It wouldn't be fair 'cause my head isn't there
So I'll leave you with your rock and roll songs
And make my way back to the country

Still I hear play me a rock and roll song
Don't give me music that I don't want to hear
Play me a rock and roll song
I should have stayed at home with a big case of beer
Play me a rock and roll song
Or don't play me no song at all
