Like A Rock Lyrics

Words and music by bob seger

Stood there boldly
Sweatin' in the sun
Felt like a million
Felt like number one
The 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 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 firmly
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 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 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
O' When i'm bathed in the firelight
The moon comes callin' a ghostly white
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

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
