Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of Hell
But I won't back down

No I'll 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

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

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

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

(I won't back down)
Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
(I wont back down)
Hey I won't back down

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