Emmylou Harris – It's Only Rock 'n Roll lyrics

(Rodney Crowell)

Well, it's only rock and roll keep you running from yourself
When the only way to slow down is to fall
And it's only rock and roll that caused you to leave home
When the only way to get back is to crawl

But the record people love you they can get you on the bill
Change your name to money dress up fit to kill
People all around you everywhere you go
Don't worry if they love you son it's only rock and roll

Yes and it's only rock and roll keep you jumping all the time
When you really ought to sit this one out
And it's only rock and roll keep on messin' with your mind when
You don't know what they're talkin' about

All around the world everywhere you go
People got to have it 'cause it's only rock and roll

It's only rock and roll yes it's only rock and roll
People all around you everywhere you go
Don't worry if they love you, 'cause it's only rock and roll

Well it's only rock and roll when your money's in the mail
And your love's on the back of the bus
And it's only rock and roll when your records start to sell
And you don't know why they're making such a fuss

Telephone receiver ringin' off the wall
Can I get witness each and every call
Second that emotion chased into your soul
Don't worry lest you linger, son it's only rock and roll

It's only rock and roll yes it's only rock and roll
People all around you everywhere you go
Don't worry if they love you, 'cause it's only rock and roll

It's only rock and roll. yeah it's only rock and roll
All around the world everywhere you go
People got to have it son it's only rock and roll
