Well I won't back down
No, I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
And I won't back down

I'm gonna stand my ground
Won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground
And I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right
And I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I stand my ground
And I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey, I, I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back down
