I'm A Rocker
Chuck Berry Lyrics


You know sometimes I'm a rocker and sometimes I'm all a roller.
I may go down sometimes but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out on the floor when they played number one,
We were rockin' and a rollin' and really havin' fun
I'm a rocker, yeah; I'm a roller,
I may go down sometimes but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out the floor when they played number two
You know she claims she don't, but I know she do
I'm a rocker, yeah, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out on the floor when they played number three
Believe me, I was digging her and she was digging me
I'm a rocker, yeah, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out on the floor when they played number four
She done freak me out and I was ready to go
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out on the floor when they played number five
I was lit up like a green light on a one-way drive
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller
We were out on the floor when they played number six
I was stone getting firm like a cement mix
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out on the floor when they played number seven
We caught a taxicab and told him to take us to heaven
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out on the floor when they played number eight
She was right on time, and I wasn't a second late
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller

We were out on the floor when they played number ten
We had a coke, a cheeseburger, went and did it again.
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes, but I come back to rock'n'roller

We was all freaked out when the band went down
And we all got together and went round and around
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes but I come back
Rockin', rollin', rockin', rollin', rockin'
Rollin' and really havin' fun
I'm a rocker, I'm a roller
I may go down sometimes but I come back to rock'n'roller

The World Is A Lesser Place

Although it has been many years since he had hit records, knowing that Chuck Berry was in the room made all the difference in the world. I feel so bummed by all of this. The great Daddy-O has died, and left us. But, God, what he has left us with!

Understanding that the man who created Rock and Roll was still in the world, even at 90, was a kick in the jams to anyone who ever wanted to play a guitar or ring a bell. All of the Johnny’s out there who aspire to become rock and rollers need ONLY to listen to Chuck Berry, steal his licks, and from then on take a ride on the Rocket 88 and groove.

I never saw Chuck in concert and for me that is a void that cannot be repaired. But we will always have the music; the kick ass, amazing SOUNDS of the man who towered over everybody. The Beatles, Stones, Who, Elvis; they all copied Chuck Berry. How could they not? He wrote the Bible!

Atheists can say that Chuck Berry has ceased to exist. Yes, he has left the building. But he has left it with such an incredible discography, that hundreds of years from now, people of all ages will be making out in the backseat of whatever device we will be riding in to Mr. Rock and Roll.

Seems like I am rather sad and depressed tonight, no? And I am. One of the great wonders of the world is no longer in it. I am usually full of words, but I could fill up FaceBook and never come close to paying proper tribute to this man.

But “Maybellene”, “Too Much Monkey Business”, “Brown Eyed Handsome Man”, “Roll Over Beethoven”, “Rock and Roll Music”, “Johnny B. Goode”, “Memphis”, “Back in the USA”, “Promised Land”, and so many others remain with us.

And so will Chuck Berry, as long rock and roll lives on.

And that will be forever. That is his legacy!
