"Rock N Roll Hero" as written by and John Griffitt Wilcox....
I sold my soul to rock 'n' roll,
When it didn't cost a thing
Stacks of scratched up 45's
And taught myself how to sing
What does it take to be a rock 'n' roll hero,
Just like the king
Livin' your life in a blaze of glory,
Burnin' it up in a smoke filled club
Givin' your soul to the world
Like a rock 'n' roll hero,
A soldier of fortune in the night
Like a rock 'n' roll hero,
When the white hot lights cut thru the night
And the sound of the thunder starts roaring
That's when you know what you're savin' it for
And you're feeling like a rock 'n' roll hero

I owe it all to rock 'n' roll,
And I wouldn't want to change a thing
Got this old guitar strapped round my neck,
And my baby waitin' in the wings
What does it take to be a rock 'n' roll hero,
Just like the king
Livin' your life in a blaze of glory,
A flame in your soul,
Givin' it all to the world
Yes you're feeling like, oh you're feeling like
Like a rock 'n' roll hero, like a rock 'n' roll hero
