Some people born in old Kentucky
Think they're living in a tunnel mine of coal
Other people born not quite so lucky
Giving everything by selling out their soul

I know that everybody's born for something
Just to feed them and keep them from the cold
Sometimes you get to do the things you? re meant to
And I know that I was born to rock and roll

Born to rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul
(Rock and roll, rock and roll)

I'm gonna rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul
(Rock and roll)

Gonna rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul
(Rock and roll, rock and roll)

I'm gonna rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your

Always wanted to be a fireman
Just to steer the hook and ladder from behind
Then I thought I'd be a great inventor
But I found it might be too hard on my mind

I believe that everybody's born for something
The trick's in how you play the cards you hold
With some luck you get to do the thing you? re best at
And I know I was born to rock and roll

Born to rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul
(Rock and roll, rock and roll)

I'm gonna rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul
(Rock and roll)

Gonna rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul
(Rock and roll, rock and roll)

I'm gonna rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul
(Rock and roll)

I'm gonna rock and roll
(I was born, I was born)
To satisfy your soul

I'm gonna rock and roll
