This might not be the most original idea,but i have tried to take it a long way.
I love all the guys named and they opened all the doors. This is tribute and fun in form.The more you look the more you see.Like ;do you notice there`s a touch of `Hotel California`?
The guitar plays classic rock`n`roll lines and we have used a small brass section throughout.
Should you get lost way down that winding road to nowhere,
beyond the crossroads and the howl of the ghost train,
you might find a town that fell off the map of creation
`rock and roll heaven` is its name.
Elvis presley owns the hotel here in `heaven`,
buddy holly`s been elected mayor again.
Janis joplin drives an open top mercedes Benz,
and Ray charles owns the music store on main.
Mr. Lennon teaches `classes` in the schoolyard,
johnny cash keeps the keys to the county jail,
and from a shot gun shack called `sweet home Alabama`
you can hear Lynyrd Skynyrd`s guitars wail.
Welcome to Rock`n`roll heaven,
stick around you`re gonna love everything.
The beer`s cold and the music`s hot in`heaven`
and tonight Roy orbison will sing.
They got a hell of a band here in heaven,
Keith Moon on drums,Jimi Hendrix on guitar,
Mama Cass and Marvin Gaye sing back up vocals,
and in heaven every bass player`s a star!
Karaoke aint allowed in this here city,
but Michael jackson walks the moon on the MTV,
have we got a band that's truly `rockin`
in the finest concert hall you`ll ever see.
Welcome to rock`n`roll heaven,
you don't have to sell your soul to boogaloo
coz the devil he went down to Georgia
and God gave rock and roll to you.
No don`t despair for our dearly departed.
those troubadours in leather and blue jeans,
their records live for ever ,even tho` they`re dead,
they`re famous beyond their wildest dreams
welcome to rock `n`roll heaven,
its a town that never had a proper plan.
you can always leave,but we know you`ll keep on coming back
to Rock and roll heaven when you can!
