Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music
Words and Music by: Larry Norman One, two, one, two, three.. 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 Say, 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 No, all I'm really trying to say Is why should the devil have all the good music? I feel good, I feel good every day Why? 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 Sometimes people don't understand They say "What's a good boy doing listening to a Rock 'n' Roll band? There's nothing wrong or even communistic about playing a blues lick If you got a reason, tell me to my face Why should the devil have all the good music? He doesn't I feel good, I feel OK, ah.. Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues away, yes He did. 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 something, you know, that moves me I don't like none of those funeral marches I ain't dead yet! Jesus told the truth, Jesus showed the way There's one more thing I'd like to say You know, they nailed Him to the cross, laid Him in the ground But they shoulda known you can't keep a good Man down I've been filled, I feel OK You know, all I wanna, all I wanna, all I wanna know Is why should the devil have anything? I feel good, you know why? 'Cause Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues Jesus is the rock and He'll rolled your blues Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues away! Yea, yea!
