It’s A Hard Road

Riding down the highway, going to a show
Stepping on the by-ways, playing rock n’ roll
Getting robbed, far from home
Getting beat up, broken bone
Getting had, getting took
I tell you folks it’s harder than it looks

It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll

The leaflets for the gig day, ‘cos the left-wing lies
No ads before the big days, we know the reasons why
Getting old, getting grey
Getting ripped-off, underpaid
Getting sold, second-hand
That’s how it goes playing in a band

It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
If you think it’s easy doing one-night stands, oh baby
Try playing in a rock n’ roll band

It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll

If you wanna get up on the stage and scream, well baby
Look out now because it’s hard and mean

It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
It’s a hard road, carrying on playing White rock n’ roll
