lyrics

House of Rock
(Music and Lyrics: Tim Hunter © 2020)

Turn back the clock, and live a life of old
In a House of Rock and Roll

Take a stroll down Abbey Road, see the cave where St Robert saved his soul,
And the tree sculptures watch you walking by,
To the Chapel and House carved in stone so high

Walk up to the castle and see the view in the market place,
Blind Jack is sat next to you

Turn back the clock, and live a life of old
In a House of Rock and Roll.
Don’t let the storm take its toll,
Live in a House of Rock and Roll

Cross the bridge and see the Dropping Well
Where old Mother Shipton used to dwell,
See the cave where so much was prophesied
and take a look at all that has been petrified

Walk up to the castle and see the view in the market place,
Blind Jack is sat next to you

Turn back the clock, and live a life of old
In a House of Rock and Roll.
Don’t let the storm take its toll,
Live in a House of Rock and Roll
