Birth Of Rock And Roll

(Words & music by Carl Perkins)

Well Nashville had country music
But Memphis had the soul
Lord, the white boy had the rhythm
And that started rock and roll

And I was here when it happened
Don't you all think I ought to know
I was here when it happened,
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I watched Memphis give birth to rock and roll,
Lord, lord yeah.

Well the cat named Elvis Be-Bopped
In to sun right off the street
Sang 'Blue Moon' of OKY
But he did it with a brand new beat

Guess he sought him a sleeping
World and out there by surprise
Jack 'em up, you rang them out
And he' hung 'em out to dry

I was there when it happened,
Son't you all think I ought to know,
Lord, lord
Yeah I was here when it happened
I watched Memphis give birth to rock and roll

Here's kinda the way it happened
Well the drummer boy was the beatin'
On the drums a rockin' and a goin' wild
The real city slicker was
Clickin' and clackin' and doin' it in a different style
Hit car strumming a beat and a pumpin'
And the lead man picking out the blues
Hip-shaking singer was a swinging and
A swinging saying some style blue suede shoes

and I was here when it happened,
Lord I think I ought to know, yeah, yeah
Folks I was here when it happened
I watched Memphis give birth to rock and roll

What you think about it little guitar c'mon son

Some folks called it the devils music
Others said it wouldn't last long
31 years since we started shakin'
Proves somebody was wrong
The 64's, the Beatles and the four
Were rock and roll's best friends
The Beatles and The Stones
Brought the old beat home

And world went crazy again
I was here when it happened
My friend I think I ought to know, yeah, yeah
Well I was there when it happened
I watched Memphis give birth to rock and roll
Lord yeah, c'mon
