Johnny Winter Lyrics - Raised on Rock

	  
	
(Words & music by Mark James)
Album: (1974) John Dawson Winter III 
 
I remember as a child I used to hear
Music that they played, with a feel
Some call it folk, some call it soul
People let me tell you it was Rock and Roll
 
I was raised on rock, got that rhythm in my soul
Everyday when I get home, I turned on my radio
 
And Listen to the music that my idols made
I knew every single record the DJ's played
A honky tonk, a Hound Dog, a Johnny B. Goode
Chain Gang, Love Is Strange, Knock On Wood
 
I was raised on rock, got that rhythm in my soul
I was born to love the beat of that thing call rock and roll
(Instrumental interlude)
 
They thought it was a fad, thought that it would pass
But the younger generation knew it would last
Time gone by, the beat goes on
But every time I hear it, it takes me home
 
I was raised on rock, got that rhythm in my soul
Everyday when I get home, I turned on my radio
 
Mama played recordings of Beethoven's Fifth
Moonlight sonata down the classical Liszt
Daddy loved to listen to his country songs
I was in the back room diggin' the Stones
 
I was raised on rock, got that rhythm in my soul
I was born to love the beat of that thing call rock and roll
I was raised on rock, got that rhythm in my soul
Everyday when I get home, I turned on my radio - radiooooo
(Guitar solo till fade)
