Tony Joe White - Even Trolls Love Rock And Roll - Austin, TX 1980

Even Trolls Love Rock & Roll Lyrics

Tony Joe White

Now one time I had this little ol' band back home 
A rock and roll band 
And we was going to play this job one night 
And it weren't too far away so we was walking 
But we came upon a long dark stretch of woods 
Had an old river running through it 
And an old wooden bridge across the river 
Well just as I was about to step upon the bridge 
Out stepped the troll 
A whole mighty troll 

And he said: Hey looks like you all are going to play somewhere 
And I said: Yes sir 
Cause you always wanna say yes sir to a troll 
He said: I hate to mess up your boys job 
But I sure could dig hearing ya'all play a little bit 
I said: Man we can't just plug up 
And play it right here upon the bridge 
He said: Why? 
And I go: Cause ... 
But the troll said: Play! 
That's what we did ... 

Well the wind was howling at the night 
And the moon was covered up with clouds 
I was walking cross a bridge on a dirt road 
When I heard a troll growl 
He said don't you go walking cross my bridge 
I am gonna make it tough on you 
I am gonna give you swamp fever 
You'll be wondering if you're you 
Yeah you know you got to pay the toll 
Cause even trolls love rock and roll 

Uh it will keep you up all night 
Drinking and carrying on 
Getting it to the swamp music 
Get it on - Get it on 
Yeah you know you got to pay my toll 
Cause even trolls love rock and roll 

But the troll said: Hey! 
He said you boys just ain't getting it 
He said would you mind if I borrowed that old guitar? 
And showed you all a lick 
Since we never heard a troll play we let him have it 
And he goes like this ... 

I said: Damn troll! 
Yeah you know you got to pay the toll 
Cause even trolls love rock and roll 

Would you mind if I had my guitar back? 
And the troll said: Why?
