Rock’n roll lullaby    (video)

 

    G - C - Am - D - C - G

 

                    G                                      - C                          Am

1. She was just sixteen and all alone,        when I came to be,

           D                              - C                                    G

    so we grew up together,        my mama child and me.

               G                                                                     C                  Am

    Now things were bad and she was scared, but whenever I would cry,

                D                                                           C              - D        G

    she’d calm my fears and dry my tears with a Rock’n Roll       lullaby.

 

    And she’d sing:

 

   G                              Am

Sha na na na .....,  it’ll be alright,

  C                  - D                 G

sha na na na .... , now just hold on tight !

    G                            Am

Shan a na na ....., it’ll be alright,

               C                             D

sing it sweet and clear, oh, mama, let me hear

               C              - D        G

that old Rock’n Roll      lullaby.

 

+  G - Am - C - D - C - G

 

              G                                            - C                                           Am

2. We made it through the lonely days,     but, Lord, the nights were long,

                       D                                   - C                                     G

    and we’d dream of better moments,       when mama sang a song.

                G                                             C                           Am

    Now I can’t recall the words at all, it don’t make sense to try,

             D                                                                       C           - D         G

  ’cause I just knew lots of love came through in that Rock’n Roll    lullaby.

 

    And she’d sing:

 

   G                              Am

Sha na na na .....,  it’ll be alright,

  C                  - D                 G

sha na na na .... , now just hold on tight !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    G                            Am

Shan a na na ....., it’ll be alright,

               C                                   D

nothing eased my soul like the sound of a

                 C              - D         G

good old Rock’n Roll       lullaby.

 

+  G - Am - C - D - C - G

 

+  CHORUS ....
