x4 for intro

A E A D/A A *)
He's just an old rock 'n' roller playing music in a backstreet bar.
 F#mDE7
And he sings a little flat and he never learned to play the guitar.
 F#mC#m7
But he keeps on beltin' out them rhythm and blues
 DA
 "Long Tall Sally" and "Blue Suede Shoes"
A E F#m D(add9 - D) **)
He just can't accept the fact he's never gonna be a star.
A E A *)
He's just an old rock 'n' roller playing music in a backstreet bar.

He had a record in the sixties, it was big enough to go Top Ten.
And though he tried and he tried he never could make it happen again.
He's been living twenty years on bourbon and pride.
Jerry Lee went country and Elvis died.
And then his third wife left him but he never really thought it would last.
And now she ain't nothing but another little blast from the past.

 C#m7
But sometimes late on a saturday night
 D
when the crowd's out having fun,
 C#m7
He steps to the mike with a gleam in his eye
 D
and once again he's twenty-one.
 F#m
And then it's "Be-Bop-A-Lulu" and "Heartbreak Hotel"
 C#m7
and "That'll Be The Day"
 DC#m7BmADE
But then the Sweet Bird of Youth just flies away.   

He's an earthbound eagle that never did learn how to fly.
He ain't ever gonna make it but he sure did give it a try.
So go dye your hair and turn the music up loud,
When it's time to go, at least you'll go down proud.
You ain't never gonna be nothing but what you are –
Just an old rock 'n' roller playing music in a backstreet bar,

Just an old rock 'n' roller playing music in a backstreet bar.
