lyrics

I was looking for a gold mine I found a diamond here
I was looking for a gold mine I found a diamond here
It ain't pretty but give it time, just another year

I opened up my suitcase, I found a war machine
I opened up my suitcase, I found a war machine
Not a soul had taken aim and the gun was clean

I went down to Nashville the other side of the tracks
They were singing at the opry but it wasn't gonna take me back
And the other side was killing time at the laundromat

I was looking for a lifeboat, I found a sinking ship
I was looking for a lifeboat, I found a sinking ship
The swimming wasn't easy but the jacket fit

I went down to Memphis looking for the reigning king
Found a crooked pathway to a chief who would not sing
And the angels took the melody for the reckoning

oh - oh - oh It's so rock n'roll
oh - oh - oh it's so rock n'roll
