The Lord Loves Rock And Roll - Poem by keith Durante

The Lord Loves Rock and Roll
gives life to the soul
so play on drums of old
tell the story of Rock and Roll

born on the brow of sweat and toil
in the bayou's and cotton fields sacred soil
a sound honed from misery and despair
to rapture the burdened with utmost care

breaking the chains of sinful restraint
all the lies slave masters paint
a resonate spirit ablaze, her rebellious echo
tearing down walls, like those of Jericho

the carnage and misery of souls bought and sold
gave birth to the rythym of Rock and Roll
breast fed by her mother, sweet sister blues
as Father Gospel sang heavenly news

the violence of brutality and murderous rage
suffers the heart at any age
somgs of freedom ring the unholy toll
The Lord Loves Rock and Roll...
