Rocking Soul in Blue

Updated on March 8, 2017

Rock and roll, with a little soul, fine blues music thrown in,

Smokey old cafe, gonna chase it all away, when I do begin.

Rain coming down, the only other sound, all the day long,

A hush over the place, turns every face, as I play my song.


Refrain:

A little bit of Rock and a little bit of roll,

Gonna raise the roof, with a little soul.

It's Saturday night, gonna sing it right,

Play that rocking music untill daylight.


Sing that rocking music on the shady side of Blues,

I've got rocking in my soul, gonna tell all the news.

That electric guitar's straining, sounding kinda cool,

Drum's beat in the background, breaking every rule.


Refrain:

A little bit of rock and a little bit of roll,

Gonna raise the roof, with a little soul.

It's Saturday night, gonna sing it right,

Play that rocking music, until daylight.



Moon shining out among the stars, raising all the bars,

Creating that moody blues music we all love so well.

Got that soulful feeling inside, can't lose it if I tried,

Need to share that special story, its message to tell.


Refrain:

A little bit of rock and a little bit of roll,

Gonna raise the roof, with a little soul.

It's Saturday night, gonna sing it right,

Play that rocking music, until daylight.

Need to share that special story, tell it well,

Gonna sing that rocking soul music, sing it well.

      Especially like the verse, "Sing that rocking music . . ." Your verse conjures up the image of happy people singing and dancing. Happy mood!
