ALVIN LEE lyrics - Rock 'N' Roll Guitar Picker

ALVIN LEE
"Rock 'N' Roll Guitar Picker"
(Alvin Lee)

I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar picker
Never wanted to be a big town city slicker
My friends said to me, they said you don't understand
You never make a livin' in a rock 'n roll band
But I play it loud, and the music keeps rockin' on

Well my moma she said, what you gonna do
When you get past twenty-one
Said, I don't think I'll make it - but if I'm mistaken,
Well the music will be rockin' on
I said rock 'n roll music - is gettin' me high
I wanna rock 'n roll until the day that I die,
I always wanted to be - a rock 'n roll guitar man

Well honey let me take you to a rock 'n roll dance
I'll tell you how to do it if you give me a chance
I'll give you good music and you're gonna do right
Baby let you rock 'n roll - all through the night

I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar picker
I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar man
I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar man

Well back in my school I was a rock 'n roll fool
I didn't learn my lessons and I thought I was cool
The headmaster caught me, the things that he taught me
Will keep me out of trouble - but rock 'n roll rules

Well I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar picker
I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar man
I never wanted to be a big town city slicker
I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar man
I always wanted to be a rock 'n roll guitar man - yeah!
