Or friends I once did know.
(..)But I still got my voice left,
I can take it anywhere I go.
(..) And I've never had much money
But I'm still around somehow.
(..) Many times I've bended
But I ain't never yet bowed.
(..) I been kicked and whipped and trampled on,
I been shot at just like you.
(..) But as long as the world keeps a-turnin',
I just keep a-turnin' too.
(..)Well, my road might be rocky,
The stones might cut my face.
(..)But as some folks ain't got no road at all,
They gotta stand in the same old place.
Hey, hey, so I guess I'm doin' fine."
