Story behind the song
In the 50's many Country musicians migrated to the new Rock n Roll / Rockabilly music. Today that trend is reversing as old Rockers are migrating to the New Country. This is one of their stories.
Lyrics
Just an old Rock n Roller, (Playin' In A New Country Band) Steve Domer 2014 No one liked my old Rock n Roll down in Memphis So I tried a little Country, went to Nashville, Tennessee But every time I sang, They said, "Son ,you ain't got no twang!" I'm just an old Rock n Roller, playin' in a New Country band So I loaded up my truck, made my way to Amarillo 'Cause Texas is a big state, thought it'd be the place for me But in Texas no one claps their hands If you don't have a fiddle in the band I'm just an old Rock n Roller, playin' in a New Country band I made my way to Vegas I played in Phoenix, and L.A. They said, "Although you've got no steel guitar, still I like the way you play!" "Though you don't sound like Hank Williams, but your music makes us want to dance" I'm just an old Rock n Roller, playin' in a New Country band solo And every time I sang They said, "son you ain't got no twang" I'm just an old Rock n Roller, playin' in a New Country band I played some clubs in Bakersfield In Fresno, San Jose They said, "Though that don't sound like western swing, But boy you sure can play!" "And though you don't sound like Buck Owens, Well your music might have a chance" I'm just an old Rock n Roller, playin' in a New Country band I'm just an old Rock n Roller, playin' in a New Country band I'm just an old Rock n Roller, playin' in a New Country band
