Memphis 1955 on Newton Avenue
Jerry, Carl and Roy and Lee and
And Jack Clement too

A new sun risin′ on the way we sing
And a world of weirdos waitin' in the wings
Oh, but I′m a different man for lovin' you
And I take a shot at what you ask me to

And baby I will rock and roll with you
If I have to

Well, they used to call us Rockabillies
All of us ran through
When the big cat opened up the door
Boop-bap-alap-bamboo

I didn't ever play much rock and roll
′Cause I got so much country in my soul
But I love you and though I′m past 42
There are still a few things yet I didn't do

And baby I will rock and roll with you
If I have to
