Old Time Rock 'N' Roll

Words & Music:

Bob Seger


[capo 2]


A                           D

Just take those old records off the shelf;


I'll sit and listen to them by myself.

G                   A

Today's music ain't got the same soul;

            D        A

I like that old-time rock 'n' roll.


Don't try to take me to a disco

You'll never even get me out on the floor

In ten minutes I'll be late for the door

I like that old time rock 'n' roll



Still like that old time rock 'n' roll

That kind of music just soothes the soul

I reminisce about the days of old

With that old time rock 'n' roll


Won't go to hear them play a tango

I'd rather hear some blues or funky old soul

There's only one sure way to get me to go

Start playing old time rock 'n' roll


Call me a relic, call me what you will

Say I'm old fashioned, say I'm over the hill

Today's music ain't got the same soul

I like that old time rock 'n' roll
