bill anderson – rock n’ roll to rock of ages lyrics

Loading...

i was born to a christian country home
and the first songs that i sang
were the songs of praise and glory
on sunday morning when the church bells rang

i sang them first in sunday school
later on i sang up in the choir
until one sunday morning almost without warning
i realize that wasn’t my desire

and that’s when i went from singing rock of ages
to singing rock and roll
and my momma fell down on her knees
and prayed to god to have mercy on his soul

and the elders and the deacons
tried to get the black sheep back into the fold
the day i went from singing rock of ages
to singing rock and roll

i packed a little bag
and we began to travel all around the world
our nights were filled with music
and screaming propositions from the girls

i started rolling cigarettes
drinking beer and loving warm red wine
my momma wrote me letters i tied them all together
said i’ll read ‘em as soon as i get the time

we were picking in chicago
the night the telegram came to the gig
it was from my little sister
and she said bubba bubba come home quick

momma’s got a fever
and daddy says she surely must be dying
and momma’s one request the thing she loves the best
was to hear you sing the gospel one more time

and that’s when i went from singing rock and roll
back to singing rock of ages
and the little country church
seemed a million miles from the concert stages

and the good lord wrote my momma’s name
in the book of everlasting pages
i finally went from singing rock and roll
to singing rock of ages
cleft for me let me hide myself in thee

yes i finally went from singing rock and roll
back to singing rock of ages
in the little country church
seemed a million miles from the concert stages
