    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 18
Didn't have a care
Workin' 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 somethin' 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

20 Years now
Where'd they go
20 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

Lihe a rock - The sun upon my skin
Like a rock - Hard against the wind
Like a rock - I see myself again
Like a rock
Like a rock
