Got Back Up Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Was a smoke filled room, was a Friday night
Talkin to a sweet thing and having me a good time
Went through that door, big Jim walked in
Hed been pushing me around since we was kids

Well, I lowered my hat as he came toward me
I heard him say, hey you, but never saw him swing
Well, he knocked me down on that nasty floor
But something felt different than the times before

Cause I got back up like my daddy taught
Lifes gonna hurt you but you brush it off
Well, now you cant quit, you gotta fight back, son
When you find yourself on the ground, you gotta get back up

I worked ten long years in a deep coal mine
Until the roof caved in and it broke my spine
They put me in a chair and the doctor said
"I hate to tell you, son, you aint gonna walk again"

So I closed my eyes and I prayed to the Lord
And then a fire ran through me on that moment before

Well, I got back up like my daddy taught
Lifes gonna hurt you but you brush it off
Well, now you cant quit, you gotta fight back, son
When you find yourself on the ground, you gotta get back up

When my time comes and they lay me down
In an old pine box in the cold, cold ground
I wont rest in peace too long before
Heaven calls my name and my spirit soars

And Ill get back up when that trumpet sounds
Now there aint no grave gonna hold me down
Ill meet my father when that day comes
And its all because and its all because I got back up
