Bob Seger
Like A Rock

Stood there boldly, sweating 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
Working for peanuts, not a dime to spare
But I was leaning, 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
Nothing ever got to me
Like a rock
I was something 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 dream

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, oh when I'm bathed in the firelight
The moon comes calling a ghostly way
And I recall, I recall

Like a rock
Standing arrow straight
Like a rock
Charging from the gate
Like a rock
Carrying the weight
Like a rock

Oh, 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
Oh, like a rock
Oh
