Lyrics

HE DIDNÂ?T KNOW HIS DADDY

HE COULDNÂ?T READ AND HE COULDNÂ?T WRITE
BUT YOU SHOULDA SEEN HIM DANCE ON A SATURDAY NIGHT
HE DIDNÂ?T KNOW HIS DADDY
BUT HE SURE COULD ROCK AND ROLL

WHEN HE WAS A KID, HE DID THE KIND OF THINGS THAT ALL KIDS DID
KICKIN A CAN ALONG AN OLD DIRT TRACK
HE HEARD THAT MUSIC AND THE CAN KICKED BACK

HE COULDNÂ?T READ etc

LIVING IN THE TOWN
HE HEARD THE MUSIC AS THE WHEELS WENT ROUND
SATURDAY OUTSIDE THE OLD DANCE HALL
HE WAS DANCING IN THE ALLEY
WITH HIS SHADOW ON THE WALL

HE COULDNÂ?T READ etc

THEN HE BECAME A MAN
A GUITAR PLAYER IN A HOT-TIME BAND
FROM TEXICANA TO THE BLUE BAYOU
LOOKING FOR THE HEART OF THE MUSIC HE KNEW

HE COULDNÂ?T READ etc

THEN ON A NIGHT IN SYRACUSE
OUT WALKING IN HIS BLUE SUEDE SHOES
HE HEARD THE SOUND OF AN OLD GUITAR
SCREAMING FROM THE RUINS OF A RUN DOWN BAR

HE COULDNÂ?T READ etc

UP THERE ON THE STAGE, STOOD THE IMAGE OF HIM, TWICE HIS AGE
Â?IÂ?M YOUR DADDYÂ? SANG THE OLD MANÂ?S SONG
AND I AM THE MUSIC YOU BEEN LOVING ALL ALONG

HE COULDNÂ?T READ etc
