1972

Album: Days of Gold (2013)
  • 1972
    Daddy drove in over, it was sky blue
    He worked at a record store after school
    Call it sympathy for the vinyl

    1972
    Turntable in the basement, Major Cool
    A hippie girl, couple cold beers split in two
    You got your own rock n roll revival

    Girl you know they didn't ride
    So come on over tonight

    I'm gonna rock you like Zeppelin, roll you like the stones
    Burr like them speakers in my old headphones
    Gonna fly like an eagle when I drop a needle on the blues
    I'm gonna get the metal piece down from the attic
    With a pop and a hiss and a little bit of static
    We'll be chillin' like a villain on some Dylan while we're killin' some booze
    We're gonna kick it like the kids did in 1972

    So will it just be me and you
    Playing air drums with The Who's Keith Moon
    You know them good ones always die too soon
    Like Jimmy, Jim and Joplin

    Yea, kickin back, cutting loose
    Sippin on Jack, that's what we do
    It don't matter baby girl cus in a few
    You're gonna hear heaven a knockin

    Look out!

    I'm gonna rock you like Zeppelin, roll you like the stones
    Burr like them speakers in my old headphones
    Gonna fly like an eagle when I drop a needle on the blues
    I'm gonna get the metal piece down from the attic
    With a pop and a hiss and a little bit of static
    We'll be chillin' like a villain on some Dylan while we're killin' some booze
    Well let's kick it like the kids did in 1972

    I'm gonna rock you like Zeppelin, roll you like the stones
    Burr like them speakers in my old headphones
    Gonna fly like an eagle when I drop a needle on the blues
    I'm gonna get the metal piece down from the attic
    With a pop and a hiss and a little bit of static
    We'll be chillin' like a villain on some Dylan while we're killin' some booze
    Well let's kick it like the kids did in 1972

    Yea, we're gonna kick it like the kids did in 1972Writer/s: JAREN JOHNSTON, JIM BEAVERS
