Like a Rock

Bob Seger

 G
 Stood there boldly sweatin' in the sun
 C
 Felt like a million, felt like number one
 FC
 The height of summer, I'd never felt that strong
 G
Like a rock.

 G
 I was eighteen, didn't have a care
 C
 Workin' for peanuts, not a dime to spare
 FC
 But I was lean and solid everywhere
 G
Like a rock.

 G
 My hands were steady, my eyes were clear and bright
 C
 My walk had purpose, my steps were quick and light
 FC
 And I held firm to what I felt was right
 G
Like a rock.

 G
Like a rock - I was strong as I could be
 C
Like a rock - nothin' ever got to me
 FC
Like a rock - I was something to see
 G
Like a rock.

 Em
And I stood arrow straight, unencumbered by the weight
 G
Of all these hustlers and their schemes
 C
I stood proud, I stood tall, high above it all
 AmD
still believed in my dreams.

(SOLO)

 G
 Twenty years now, where'd they go
 C
 Twenty years - I don't know
 FCG
 I sit and I wonder sometimes where they've gone

 GC
And sometimes late at night - oh when I'm bathed in the firelight
 FC
 The moon comes callin' a ghostly white

And I recall, I recall.

 G
Like a rock - standin' arrow straight
 C
Like a rock - chargin' from the gate
 FC
Like a rock - carryin' the weight
 G
Like a rock.
 G
Like a rock - the sun upon my skin
 C
Like a rock - hard against the wind
 FC
Like a rock - I see myself again
 G
Like a rock,

Oh, like a rock.

(SOLO)
