Like a rock. (Bob Seger)♪♪

Stood there boldly,
sweatin’ in the sun
felt like a million,
felt like number one
at height of summer,
I’d never felt that strong
Like a rock
♪♪
I was eighteen, didn’t have a care
workin’ for peanuts,
not a dime to spare
but I was lean and solid everywhere
Like a rock
♪♪
My hands were steady,
my eyes were clear and bright
my walk had purpose,
my steps were quick and light
And I held firm,
to what I felt was right
Like a rock
♪♪
Like a rock
I was strong as I could be
like a rock
Nothin’ ever got to me
like a rock
I was somethin’ to see
like a rock
♪♪
And I stood arrow straight
unencumbered by the weight
of all these hustlers and their schemes
I stood proud I stood tall
high above it all
I still believed in my dreams
♪♪
Twenty years now, where’d they go?
Twenty years, I don’t know
I sit and I wonder sometimes
where they’ve gone
♪♪
And sometimes late at night,
oohhh when I’m bathed in the firelight
the moon comes callin’ a ghostly way,
and I recall
I recall
♪♪
Like a rock
Standin’ arrow straight
like a rock
chargin’ from the gate
like a rock
carryin’ the weight
like a rock
♪♪
oohhh like a rock
the sun upon my skin
like a rock
hard against the wind
like a rock
I see myself again
like a rock
oohhh like a rock
oohhh
♪♪♪♪♪♪♪
