(Singing w/ Intro)
Mmmmmmmm, mmmmm....
I love it when you play it like that...
Come on...plaaay...

(Accompaniment plays B, G#m, F#, E – play once before singing verse 1)

(Verse 1 – accompaniment plays B, G#m, F#, E)
Sitt’n here alone
I’m looking back on where I've roamed
And laugh’n, how I swore 
I'd win and not get burned.
Left my family, left my home
I worked my fingers to the bone
And there was not a stone 
I did not leave unturned.
A                    E
...And I was having a good time

(Chrous)
B             F#
Roll On, roll ON, roller coaster
      C#m
We're one day older,
    E
And one step closer.
B                      F#
Roll on, there's mountains to climb
C#m           E
Roll on, were on borrowed time.
A             E
Roll on rollercoaster,
E         B
Roll on tonigh...[roll on tonight...yeaaa]

(Verse 2 - accompaniment plays B, G#m, F#, E)
Money and success
I don't complain about the stress
I wanted this and now its here
So I don't bitch.
And I swear that time's a trick
It disappears and oh so quick
Man I was just 16,
Now I'm staring attt....36.
...But I'm still having a good time!  [Good time!]

(Chorus)

(Use chorus rhythm – B, F#, C#m, E)
Da da, da da
Doo, da da doo doo
Doo, doo doo doo...doo doo doo doo doo...yeaaaa
Da da, da da
Doo, da da doo doo
Doo, da da doo doo...doo doo doo doo doo

(Bridge)
G                   A                        B
I know it’s hard to see with the sun in your eyes
G                        A             B
But one day you’re gonna say I saw the light (Pause)

(Verse 3 - accompaniment plays B, F#, C#m, E)
And now headn’ for that hill
And I just can not wait until
My children grow up
To have children of their own
And I’ll being telling them about
The times I turned the party out
And how I stood against an army all alone
Drinkn’ wine and staying high
And realized it couldn’t last
And how I turned myself around
And went down another path
And the signs you must observe
When life’s changes do occur
But most of all I’d tell them
Just how proud I am of them

A                  E
...And always have a good time  [have a good time!]
A                    E
...It’s all-a love and good times  [woo...oo...oo]
A                  E
...Let’s all have a good time...yeaaaaaa

(Use chorus rhythm throughout – B, F#, C#m, E)
Roll On, roll ON, roller coaster
We're one day older,
And one step closer.
Roll on, there's mountains to climb
Roll on, were on borrowed time.
Roll on, rollercoaster,
Roll on tonight
Da, da, da  [roll on tonight]
Doo, da da doo doo  [roll on tonight]
Doo, doo doo doo...doo doo doo doo doo...roll on tonight  [roooll oooon]
Da da, doo  [roll on]
Doo, da doo doo doo  [just roll on]
Doo, da doo doo doo...doo doo doo doo doo...roll on tonight

(Lead 2x - chords A, E, 2nd time end on B)
(Can also play on D, G and A strings at frets 7-9, 9-11 – bends are easier on acoustic)

(Break w/ sax - hold B)

Roll on…roll on
Yie, yie, yie yie yie yie yie
Won’t you roll
Roll with me babe
ROLL with me babe
Rollercoaster
We’ll go up the town
Yeaaa, yeaaaaaaAAAA

Roll On, roll ON, roller coaster
We're one day older,
And one step closer.
Roll on, there's mountains to climb
Roll on, were on borrowed time.
Roll On, roll on, roller coaster
We're one day older,
And one step closer.  (begins fading out)
Roll on, there's mountains to climb
Roll on, were on borrowed time. (fades out but can stop with two lines below)
So roll on, rollercoaster,
Roll on tonight...roll on tonight
