I came into town as a man of renown

A writer of songs about freedom and joy

The hall had been rented and I was presented

As the kind of a singer most folks 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 'n' roll song

Don’t give me songs about freedom and joy

Play me a rock 'n' roll song

Or don’t play me no song at all


I played them some songs about peace and contentment

things I have come to believe in

When I was through to a chorus of boo

Some track star yelled thank God he’s leaving


refrain


Well if I played you a rock 'n' roll song

It wouldn’t be fair ‘cause my head isn’t there

So I’ll leave you with your rock 'n' roll songs

And make my way back to the country

Still I can hear


Play me a rock 'n' roll song

Don’t give me music that I don’t want to hear

Play me a rock 'n' roll song

I should have stayed home with a small case of beer

Play me a rock 'n' roll song

Or don’t play me no song at all
