Rock And Roll Never Forgets

Words & Music:

Bob Seger


E5   A5   E5  [2x]


E5           F#5

So, you're a little bit older

      F#5             E5

And a lot less bolder than you used to be.

So, you used to shake 'em down.

But, now you stop and think about your dignity.



        A5                     E5

So, now sweet sixteen's turned thirty-one

    A5                            E5

You get to feelin' weary when the work day's done.

      A5                       E5               B

Well, all you got to do is get up and into your kicks.

B              F#

If you're in a fix

F#m     F#5      B                           E5

Come back, baby, rock and roll never forgets.


You better get yourself a partner, go down to the concert or the local bar.

Check the local newspapers, chances are you won't have to go too far.

Yeah, the rafters will be ringing cause the beat's so strong.

The crowd will be swaying and singing along,

And all you got to do is get in into the mix, if you need a fix.

Come back, baby, rock and roll never forgets.



        A5                     E5

Oh, the bands still playing it loud and lean.

A5                          E5

Listen to the guitar player making it scream.

A5                        E5                B

All you got to do is just make that scene tonight, yeah, tonight.


Well, now sweet sixteen's turned thirty-one.

Feel a little tired feeling under the gun.

Well all Chuck's children are out there playing his licks.

Get into your kicks

Come back, baby, rock and roll never forgets.

Said you can come back, baby, rock and roll never forgets.
