ROCK AND ROLL GIRL

By Tom Gray
(Gray Matter Publishing BMI)

Mom and Dad were both born on the farm.
I was born in the city, but we didn't stay long.
Moving town to town, I was just a kid,
Tried to fit in but I never really did.

So I joined a rock and roll band,
Seen the world through a haze of one-night stands.
And you, my rock and roll girl,
You're the only thing I've done right in this ragged, round world.

I tried working five days a week,
Sit home in the evening and watch TV,
Eating hamburgers from a paper sack.
The time I sold I'll never get back.

So I joined a rock and roll band,
Seen the world through a haze of one-night stands.
And you, my rock and roll girl,
You're the only thing I've done right in this ragged, round world.

It's a ragged, round world. You can't force it straight.
A simple lie will only complicate.
I don't always know the right thing to say,
But I've got a guitar and I know how to play.

So I joined a rock and roll band,
Seen the world through a haze of one-night stands.
And you, my rock and roll girl,
You're the only thing I've done right in this ragged, round world.
Yeah, you, my rock and roll girl,
You're the only thing I've done right in this ragged, round world.
