Like A Rock Lyrics 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
    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
