There’s a down town corner
People down town know
And a beat rhythm on the radio
And the girl who listens to a young mans song
On the block I live on
In the place I’m from

Well the young man sitting
On the dock of the bay
He took a long-term trip on a first class plane
Now the whole world listens
To that one mans song
On the block I live on
In the place I’m from

Tell me does it move you
Does it soothe you
Does it fill your heart and soul with the
Roots of rock and roll
Does it move you
Does it soothe you
Does it fill your heart
And soul with the roots of rock and roll

Well the man in black sits
On a screened in porch
Making birthday wishes, 71 almost
You can hear him singing chariot
Swing low
On the block I live on
In the place I know

Tell me does it move you
Does it soothe you
Does it fill your heart and soul with the
Roots of rock and roll
Does it move you
Does it soothe you
Does it fill your heart and soul with the
Roots of rock and roll

Tell me does it move you
Does it soothe you
Does it fill your heart and soul with the
Roots of rock and roll
Does it move you
Does it soothe you
Does it fill your heart and soul with the
Roots of rock and roll

Na na na na na na, I’ve been there before
Na na na na na na, I’ve been there before
Na na na na na na, I’ve been there before
Na na na na na na, I’ve been there before

When you can't get through it
You can listen to it
With a na na na na
Well I’ve been there before

When you can't get through it
You can listen to it
With a na na na na
Well I’ve been there before
