Jerry Jeff Walker – Rock & Roll My Baby lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

Take it from me it's a mystery, where all my money goes
How I make it week to week, only God almighty knows
Tonight's the night, I make it right, I'm fixin' to go into town
Buy all the drinks, kiss all the girls, spread my charming self around

Tonight I wanna rock and roll my baby, maybe dance a dance or two with yours
Crowd up to the bar and order whiskey then I want to hang out till they close the doors
Tonight my soul is young and wild and frisky,
I can't stop this urge I've got to laugh
Now if you find my attitude offensive, well honey that's just too damn bad

Well I've seen it in the papers, how Jerry Jeff is getting old
He's an aging desperado, too old now to rock and roll
Well at least I know I was one, not a writer talkin' to the wall
In fact I want it written down here, I lived long enough to do it all


I'll get to feeling so damn good, I'll have to have a new tattoo
I'll catch a cab and go uptown and get some new taps put on my shoes
I have to go to Antone's joint to get right inside some funky blues
Then wind up dancing at the Spoke and sittin' in 'til way past two
