38 Special – Prisoners Of Rock 'n Roll lyrics

The searchlight cuts through the heart of the night
We know your out there, don't put up a fight
If you resist your gonna miss all of the fun
From that backbeat rhythm you just can't escape
You can plan your break, but baby your gonna surrender
Baby your under the gun

Let it down just as far as you can
Shakin' violation again and again
So come on rock and roll prisoners
Let the music turn the key to your soul
There is no escaping when the joint is shakin'
We're prisoners, prisoners of rock and roll. Oh No

I was just a boy when the music took hold
Watchin' the Stones on the Sullivan show
I was hooked, their rockin' took me away
Well I had my dreams and I made my plans
Now I'm out on the road and got my home in my hand
And I'm lonely, sometimes it's a ball and a chain

Let it down just as far as you can
Shakin' violations again and again and again
Rock and roll prisoners
Come on rock and roll prisoners

Guitar solo

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Let it down just as far as you can
Shakin' violation again and again
So come on
Come on
Come on
Come on rock and roll prisoners
Let the music turn the key to your soul
There's no escaping when the joint is shaking
We're prisoners, prisoners of rock and roll
Oh no
Just a prisoner.....
