By Kris Kristofferson, Bob Neuwirth and Roger McGuinn

Do I look like a loser?
Do I stand in your way?
A threat to your future
You planned yesterday
Well, I fought for my freedom
Some called it a crime
Convicted of running
On rock and roll time

Chorus:
I said rock and roll time
Please take me away
To the whiskey and wine
Of some better day
And if sometimes it seems
I'm falling behind
Remember I'm running
On rock and roll time

I'm judged in your airports
Each time that I fly
I've been locked in your jailhouse
Oh, but I'm getting by
Just hoping that heaven
Is happy and high
And everyone's running
On rock and roll time

Chorus:
I said rock and roll time
Please take me away
To the whiskey and wine
Of some better day
And if sometimes it seems
I'm falling behind
Remember I'm running
On rock and roll time
