Let's invite the band in now, to play 'Roll Like Water' with us.

You'll find the lyrics, and chords for this song at the 'Image Tab', and you can print them out by going to the 'Print This Lesson' tab.

Do your best to keep up with the rhythm, and remember, even if you make mistakes, you are getting excellent practice!

The songs in this section are not easy!

But you have the knowledge, basic skills, and the understanding to take them on at your own pace. Keep in mind that whatever struggles you are having, you are definitely not alone!

Everyone has a hard time learning to bring all the details together just right to play a song all the way through.

The best thing to do if you fall behind or make a mistake is to stop playing for a moment, and try to get your bearings.

See if you can jump in with me the next time a new verse or chorus starts. As tempting as it can be to want to go back and 'fix' your mistakes, it guarantees that you will be lagging behind as the song marches on without you!

Rather, make a mental note of your mistakes, and drill yourself on the skills you need to improve to have better luck keeping up with the song.

Eventually, it will all come together, and you'll be surprised to remember it ever felt this difficult!

Roll Like Water (Lyrics)

VERSE:
Outta state plate must be running late
The way he is driving all up
in my back seat
He rips a high speed pass,
Gives the Evil Eye
Like its the last thing he gotta do
Before he dies

I try to let it roll - mmm
Gotta let it roll

VERSE:
Still I kinda wanna chase him down
Give a piece of my mind
But then Im the clown
Its a waste of my life

Just let it roll - mmm
Try to let it roll

CHORUS:
Let it roll, Let it Roll
Let it roll off like water
Let it roll , Let it Roll
We will all live a whole lot longer
If we Let it Roll

VERSE:
Lady next door, she thinks Im evil
The enemy of the common people
My light is too bright
Guitar is too loud
Lady next door wanna smoke me out

I try to let it roll - mmm
Gotta let it roll

VERSE:
Still I kinda wanna push her buttons
Crank it to eleven
But then Im the chump and Im
Wrecking my Heaven

Just let it roll - mmm
Try to let it roll

CHORUS:
Let it roll, Let it Roll
Let it roll off like water
Let it roll , Let it Roll
We will all live a whole lot longer
If we Let it Roll
