Bob Seger – Like a Rock

Bob Seger – Like a Rock lyrics

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
