Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros – The Road To Rock & Roll lyrics

On the road to rock 'n' roll
There's a lot of wreckage in the ravine
Some you recognise
Used to hang out on the scene
On the road to rock 'n' roll

We'll be in the delta by and by
And if you don't believe in good and evil
You can tell the devil why
On the road to rock 'n' roll
Come on everybody drift away
On the road to rock 'n' roll
Where I learned to play
Rock 'n' roll, rock 'n' roll, rock 'n' roll
What I learned to play

On the road to rock 'n' roll
Everybody carries a good luck charm
Said to spook the highway wind
Blowing off old Parchman farm
On the road to rock 'n' roll
They'll try to hook you by the eye
There's a mirror in your soul
You should turn it to the sky

On the road to rock 'n' roll
The lonely sing a soulful song
Leave a little light in the wilderness
For somebody to come upon
On the road to rock 'n' roll
With everybody deep in their dreams
And the snow is falling on the city
Ask the music what it means

On the road to rock 'n' roll
Come on everybody drift away
On the road to rock 'n' roll
Where I learned to play
Rock 'n' roll, rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll where I learned to play
On the road
