He was an aging rock and roll star
With a burnt out country beat
And the children who once cheered his name
Now have young 'ins at their own feet

And no one has time
For that burnt out rock and roll

But a rock and roll singer will never die
As long as the words to his songs are remembered
Without the burnt out tear that filled his eye

He build a white crystal canyon
To escape the rock revival shows
And to dream of a time
When just his music brought his highs and his lows

And no one has time
For that burnt out rock and roll

But a rock and roll singer will never die
As long as the words to his songs are remembered
Without the burnt out tear that filled his eye

There was one last late nite TV show
The camera missed the gun in his jeans
He sang the songs and played the role
Then a bullet cut him clean

And no one has time
For that burnt out rock and roll

But a rock and roll singer will never die
As long as the words to his songs are remembered
Without the burnt out tear that filled his eye
