Hot Rock Came To The Country

lyrics

LYRICS:
We were sittin' on the front porch Saturday night
Kickin' back, takin' a break (…or was it Monday?)
Pickin' our guitars, layin' some licks
When the whole house started to shake
We looked straight up 'n saw an awesome sight
There sailin' over head
Streakin' through the sky like the 4th of July
Came the big ball of burnin' red

Well, it was movin' real fast and it flew right past
Our front porch - pickin' up steam
Scarin' all the chickens nearly half to death
And tearin' off the tops of the trees
When it came to rest just a little bit west
Of our big ol' barn in the field
We felt a hot shock - the whole place rocked
Knockin' us back on our heels

When that Hot Rock came to the Country
The whole country started to roll
Well it made a big blast as it flew right past
And opened up a hundred foot hole
But the really cool thing as we started to sing
It shook us down to our soul
And the music's never gonna sound the same again
Since the Country's gone Rock 'n Roll

Didn't take long for the sheriff to call
"You boys see anything strange?"
Was that a UFO? 'cause whatever it was
Man, it's lightin' up our radar range
So we told the truth we reported the news
And this is what the radio said
Just a meteor shower, at this late hour
Go home and tuck yourselves in bed

But just about then, climbing out of that hole
Crawled a funny little green-faced man
Staring at us he just smiled and said
"I've come to join a Rock & Roll band
Now Country's sweet and you got a great beat
But you got to play it down to your soul
Yeah, Country's fine but for a really hot time
I came to make it Rock & Roll!"

When that Hot Rock came to the Country
The whole country started to roll
Well it made a big blast as it flew right past
And opened up a hundred foot hole
But the really cool thing as we started to sing
It shook us down to our soul
And Country's never gonna sound the same again
Now Country's gonna Rock & Roll
Now Hot Rock's come to Country and
Country's gone Rock & Roll

Rock & Roll… (flew 5 trillion light years…)
Rock & Roll… (just to Rock the country…)
Rock & Roll…

Country's gonna Rock and Roll... (rockin' U.S.A...)
Rock & Roll…
Rock & Roll… (Country Rocks...!)
