Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band - Like A Rock (1986)

Release Date

April 14, 1986


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 Oh, 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

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, oh
