Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music
Words and Music by: Larry Norman I want the people to know that He saved my soul But I still like to listen to the radio They say Rock 'n' Roll is wrong We'll give you one more chance I feel so good I gotta get up and dance. I know what's right, I know what's wrong I don't confuse it All I'm really trying to say Is why should the devil have all the good music? And I feel good every day Because Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues away. They say to cut my hair They're driving me insane I grew it out long to make room for my brain But sometimes people don't understand What's a good boy doing in a Rock 'n' Roll band? There's nothing wrong with playing blues licks But if you got a reason, tell me to my face Why should the devil have all the good music? There's nothing wrong with what I play Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues away, alright! I ain't knocking the hymns Just give me a song that has a beat I ain't knocking the hymns Just give me a song that moves my feet I don't like none of those funeral marches I ain't dead yet! Jesus told the truth and Jesus showed the way There's one more thing I'd like to say They nailed Him to the cross and they laid Him in the ground But they shoulda known you can't keep a good Man down I feel good every day, I don't wanna lose it All I wanna, all I wanna know Why should the devil have all the good music? I've been filled, I feel okay Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues away!
