Rockin' Rich Lynch: SONG - Next King of Rock and Roll

I saw Springsteen play a 2 p.m. concert in Asbury Park, went to Tupelo and visited Graceland. Next, I sat on the Gibson Throne on the same day I was to meet James Burton - the King's guitar man. All this added up to the creation of this song! Please BUY THE TRACK through the following links as that will help us record many more songs in the future - thanks!


LYRICS (Words and Music by Rich Lynch)

Verse:
I saw one of my rock and roll heroes
He put on an afternoon show
And man, he made it look so easy
That I knew that I had to give it a go,
Yeah, I just knew that I had to give it a go,
because

Chorus:
I just wanna survive
I just wanna take hold
I wanna be home at five
and be the next king of rock and roll

Verse:
I went to the birthplace of Mr. Presley
and I took that Graceland stroll
But, you know, Elvis Aaron's been gone a long time
Gotta fly my own flag up that pole
yeah, I'm Gonna fly my own flag up that pole

Chorus:
I just wanna survive
I just wanna take hold
I wanna be home at five
and be the next king of rock and roll

Break:
Next king, Next King
gonna be the next king

Verse:
I want to disperse all the damned darkness
and, I want to dispel the damaging blues
This ain't no fantasy lark I guess
So, watch me lace up my rock and roll shoes
Now, watch me lace up my rock and roll shoes

Chorus:
I just wanna survive
I just wanna take hold
I wanna be home at five
and be the next king of rock and roll

Outro:
Next king, Next King
Gonna be the next king
