I was born to rock with a banjo in my hand.
I was born to ride in the back of a bus all over this land.
I was born without wings, wanting to fly.
I’m gonna ride these five strings straight up to the sky.
And I’ll rock as best I can
With a banjo in my hand.
Lord it’s terrible, I know, pluggin’ in the five.
But I got to do, good Lord, what makes me feel alive.
‘Cause there’s nothing like it this whole world ‘round,
That plunkin’ and a-thunkin’ and old-timin’ sound
With a little bit o’ shuck and jive,
Oh Lord, that plugged-in five.
It gets me right down, right down in my soul,
Just to hear that banjo rock, to hear it roll.
It takes me right down to the floor,
And way down deep I die for more,
‘Cause it lets me know I’m whole
That banjo rock ‘n roll.
