    Lyrics

    I may not be a pillar in my town
    Or have the kind of job you think that I should.
    I know you see me out running around with a couple of people
    You think are no good.

    I've tried to clean it up a couple of times, but I'm a
    Backslidin' fool when it comes to walkin' that line.
    It's OK. You think you're better than me.
    Yeah, that's all right, girl, that's all right.

    [Chorus:]
    'Cause I'm close enough for rock and roll,
    Close enough for rock and roll,
    Close enough for rock and roll.
    I'm close enough for a little rock and roll.

    Yeah, it's true, I don't plan my time.
    When you're lookin' for me, I'm hard to find.
    I know you don't wanna run around with me.
    With my socks fallin' down, girl, I'm just poor company.

    I've seen your face, and it's a one-eyed jack.
    We like to talk about this or that.
    None of these things really interest me.
    Hey, that's all right, girl, that's all right.

    [Chorus:]
    'Cause I'm close enough for rock and roll,
    Close enough for rock and roll,
    Close enough for rock and roll.
    I'm close enough for a little rock.

    I know you think I'm a rough cut, baby.
    I ain't as rough cut as I am the blood on your hands.
    Gonna love that blood right off of your hands.

    [Chorus:]
    Yeah, that's all right, girl, that's all right.
    Close enough for rock and roll,
    Close enough for rock and roll,
    Close enough for rock and roll.
    I'm close enough for a little rock and roll.
