Rock-n-roll had come to stay
As a hip shaking explosion of the everyday

Changing the world in an instant
Where only change would remain the constant
A crashing chord called us all to action
As a million guitars rang out in satisfaction

From this sprang a young boy's dreams
Of writing great songs across his six strings
And from these songs both dark and light
A little truth reached out under the stage lights
