[Capo on 1st fret]

G   C   G   C
G
Stood there boldly sweatin' in the sun
C
Felt like a million, felt like number one
F                         C
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
F                  C
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
F                  C
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
       F            C
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
  Am                   D
I still believed in my dreams.

[SOLO]

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

    G                       C
And sometimes late at night - oh when I'm bathed in the firelight
F                                C
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
       F      C
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
       F               C
Like a rock - I see myself again
       G
Like a rock,

Oh, like a rock.

[SOLO]
