Rock And Roll World

Even though they had no money
They were so in love honey
I was born in the Apple in decay

In the nursery I was joined
By Mrs. Walker’s and Levon’s boys
We rocked to sleep with Sweet Baby James

Johnny was a school boy with us
Happy Jack, he was on my bus
Me and Julio played in the yard all day

Kicked the can all over the street
And rock rock rock Rockaway Beach
Then I moved to a town known as Oyster Bay

The doctor says I’m trapped inside a rock and roll world
“Just take these pills, you’ll see reality”
But I’ve seen the land that he calls home and man it’s not for me
Is my world such a bad place to be?
Me

A very, very fine house and family
Left alone with Big Fat Fannie
Spent some time with Suzie skippin’ stones

As I changed from a boy to a man
Brenda, Eddie and Jack & Diane
Led me to a train run by Casey Jones

Then I cruised down the road in some cold blue steel
Made crazy from the sound of my wheels
Had to get off this long and winding road

Luckily The Levee was near
For a bourbon, a scotch, or a beer
Or a frozen concoction to help me hang on

The doctor says I’m trapped inside a rock and roll world
“Just take these pills, you’ll see reality”
But I’ve seen the land that he calls home and man it’s not for me
Is my world such a bad place to be?
See

John at the bar served sweet cherry wine
Maxwell Edison and Dolly Dagger dined
I was standing there against the record machine

I danced with a girl named Linda Lu
Unfortunately with Lola, too
Had a last dance with a girl named Mary Jane

The doctor says I’m trapped inside a rock and roll world
“Just take these pills, you’ll see reality”
But I’ve seen the land that he calls home and man it’s not for me
Is my world such a bad place to be?
