Why should the devil have all the good music?

I want the people to know that He saved my soul
I still like to listen to the radio, they say
"Rock 'n roll is wrong, give you one more chance"
Feel so good, I wanna get up and dance

I know what's right, I know what's wrong, I don't confuse it
Well, all I'm really tryin' to say
Why should the devil have all the good music?

I've been filled, I feel okay, yeah
Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues away

They say to cut my hair, they're drivin' me insane
Grew it out long to make room for my brain
But sometimes people don't understand
What a good boy is doin' in a rock n' roll band

There's nothin' wrong with playin', playin' blues licks
If you've got a reason, I want to hear it
Why should the devil have all the good music?

I've been filled, I feel okay, yeah
Jesus is the rock and He rolled my blues away

I ain't knockin' the hymns, just give me a song that has a beat
I ain't knockin' the hymns but give me a song that moves my feet
I don't like any of 'em funeral marches, I ain't dead yet

All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say
Why should the devil have all the good music?
All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say
Why should the devil have all the good music?

All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say
Why should the devil have all the good music?
All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say
Why should the devil have all the good music?

Jesus told the truth and Jesus showed the way
One more thing I'd like to say
They nailed Him to the cross, they laid Him in the ground
Shouldn't you can't keep Jesus Christ down, no

I feel good everyday, I don't want to lose it
All I wanna, I wanna one more time now
Why should the devil have all the good music?

I've been filled, I feel okay
Jesus is the rock, He rolled my blues, He will roll your blues
Jesus is the rock, He'll roll your blues away
