Lyrics

Oh, I can still remember When I bought my first guitar Remember walking from the shop To put it proudly in my car And my family listened fifty times To my two song repertoire I told my mom her only son Was gonna be a star Well, I bought all the Beatles records Sounded just like Paul I bought all the old Chuck Berrys 78s and all And I sat by my record player Playing every note they played I watched them all on TV And copied every move they made Aw, rock and roll, I gave you all The best years of my life All the dreamy sunny Sundays All the moonlit summer nights I was so busy in the backroom Writing love songs to you While you were changing your direction And you never even knew That I was always just one step behind you

Well, '66 seemed like the year I was really going somewhere I was living in San Francisco Wearing flowers in my hair Singing songs of kindness So the world would understand The guys and me thought we were more Than just another band Aw, rock and roll, I gave you all The best years of my life All the crazy, lazy, young days All the magic moon at nights I was so busy on the road Singing love songs to you While you were changing your direction And you never even knew That I was always just one step behind you Well, '71, I was all alone When I met Sarah Jan I was trying to go it solo With someone elses band And she came up to me softly And she took me by the hand She listened to my problems And she seemed to understand And she followed me to London To a hundred hotel rooms Through a hundred record companies Who didn't like my tunes She followed me back to Tennessee Where she finally made me see I'm just a plain old country boy That's all I'll ever be Aw, rock and roll, I gave you All the best years of my life All the dreamy, sunny Sundays All the moonlit summer nights And though I never knew The magic of making it with you I'm getting along with my country songs Doing what I was born to do But I was always just one step behind you Aw, rock and roll, I gave you All the best years of my life All the dreamy, sunny Sundays....
