Oh, oh, I was raised on rock and roll
Oh, and that music filled my soul

I've been wild since I was young
Takin' my freedom out on the run
Fought the rules, fought the ropes
When I was rolling, when I was broke

Did my drinking, had my fun
Nothing ever got in my way
Did my loving as I pleased
"This is livin'," I used to say

I am an eagle and I've got to fly
Climbin' against the wind
I am a spirit who will never break
Never have a heart to mend

Oh, oh, I was raised on rock and roll
Oh, and that music filled my soul

Somewhere on that freedom road
Started fighting for my own soul
Thought of Jimmy and Janis, too
Livin' fast til they were through

Then my heart began to break
Fallin' when I wanted to fly
Someone said, "Gal, slow down
You're too young, too young to die"

Even an eagle has to fall sometimes
Climbing against the wind
Even a strong heart has to break
And learn to love and heal again

All that runnin' got to me
Could I stop and still be free?
Could I break and still be whole?
Would I live to rock and roll?

Got some friends who stood by me
Tellin' me that I would survive
Said, "You're strong, you sing your song
Know you're lucky to be alive"

Still my spirit yearns to run
Chasing every star in the sky
Wild and free I'll always be
I've got someone, I've got me

I am an eagle and I have to fly
Climbing against the wind
I've had a heart that had to break
To learn to heal and love again

Even an eagle has to fall sometimes
Climbing against the wind
Even a strong heart has to break
And learn to love and heal again

Oh, oh, I was raised on rock and roll
Oh, and that music filled my soul

Oh, oh, I was raised on rock and roll
Oh, and that music filled my soul

Oh, oh, I was raised on rock and roll
Oh, and that music filled my soul

Oh, oh, I was raised on rock and roll
Oh, and that music filled my soul
