C          Em/B              Am            Em/G
When I was young my life was rock 'n' roll music
       C          Em/B      Am    Em/G
Just diggin' the wonderful sound
     C             Em/B                Am           Em/G
I'd get home from school and when I'd finished my lessons
     F         G              F        C
I'd listen to music 'til the sun came around
     C         Em/B              Am    Em/G
I'd sit by the hour and pound my old piano
  C          Em/B            Am    Em/G
Pick out the chords to the songs
      C          Em/B         Am       Em/G
I'd heard on the air and on American Bandstand
     F            G              F        C
Just learnin' the words and then singin' along

    F          G                C               Em7    
But who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll...preacher
F               G          C
'Stead of just singin' the blues
F           G               C        Em/B  Am       Em/G
Who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll preacher
F       Am/E  Em               F             C
Singin' so you can hear the good news

C            Em/B              Am             Em/G
Now that I'm free my heart is filled with the gladness
     C             Em/B           Am    Em/G
That comes when a life has been changed
     C          Em/B         Am      Em/G
The song I now sing has a different ring
     F           G               F            C
The lyrics have meaning, but the tune is the same
      D            F#m/C#             Bm            F#m/A
But I want you to know I still love rock 'n' roll music
      D         F#m/C#       Bm     F#m/A
But now I have something to say
       D          F#m/C#          Bm           F#m/A
I'll sing you my song and maybe you'll sing along
          G         A                     G        D
And we'll make us a noise they'll hear in Heavenly places

G           A                D                 F#m7       
Who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll......preacher
G               A          D
'Stead of just singin' the blues
G           A                D       F#m/C#    Bm        F#m/A
Who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll..... preacher
G       Bm/F#    Em             G             D
Singing so you can hear the good news
