Eric Church – That's Damn Rock & Roll lyrics

It ain't a needle in a vein, it ain't backstage s**
It ain't lines of cocaine on a private jet
It ain't having a posse full of hangers on following you around
It ain't long hair, tattoos, playing too loud, nah

It ain't a middle finger on a t-shirt the establishment's trying to sell
It's a guy with the balls to tell the establishment to go to hell
It ain't about the money you make when the record gets sold
It's about doing for nothing, cause it is in your soul

Now that's damn rock and roll. (x2)

It's a rock through a window, it's a riot in the street
It's a rebel revolution, there's fire to go pieces
Burn baby burn, it's a brick in the wall
It's the first one to stand and the last one to fall
It's a hip shaking devil on the stage of Tutalow
Here's to doing what you want instead of doing what you're told
Here's to preaching bout records til we both make our break
Cause the Sheppard boy was guessing and led the flock astray

Now that's damn rock and roll.
Give all we got til there ain't nothing left.
Now that's damn rock and roll.

Crashing the party cause the party got loud
And the party turned into an angry croud
Drowning demons, feel no pain
Found a lot of ways to shame
Gone too soon, just like a song
Hendrix, Joplin, what went wrong?
Need some answers, right or wrong
Need some band to blame it on, blame it on, blame it on...

Now that's damn rock and roll.
Give all we got til there ain't nothing left.
Now that's damn rock and roll.
