"Close Enough" as written by and John Mellencamp....
I may not be a pillar in my town
Or have the kind of job, you think that I should
I know you see me out runnin´ around with a couple of people
You think are no good

I´ve tried to clean it up a couple of times, but I´m a
Backslidin´ fool when it comes to walkin´ that line
It´s OK. You think, you´re better than me
Yeah, that´s all right, girl, that´s all right

´Cause I´m close enough for rock and roll
Close enough for rock and roll
Close enough for rock and roll
I´m close enough for a little rock and roll

Yeah, it´s true, I don´t plan my time
When you´re looking for me, I ´m hard to find
I know, you don´t wanna run around with me
With my socks fallin´ down, girl, I´m just poor company

I´ve seen your face, and it´s a one-eyed Jack
We like to talk about this or that
None of these things really interest me
Hey, that´s all right, girl, that´s all right

´Cause I´m close enough for rock and roll
Close enough for rock and roll
Close enough for rock and roll
I´m close enough for a little rock and roll

I know you think I´m a rough cut, baby
I ain´t as rough cut as I am the blood on your hands
Gonna love that blood right off your hands

Yeah, that´s all right, girl, that´s all right
Close enough for rock and roll
Close enough for rock and roll
Close enough for rock and roll
I´m close enough for a little rock and roll
