I Won't Back Down Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: American 3: Solitary Man

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

Verse 2
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

Verse 3
Well I know what's right, 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
No I won't back down.

i discovered this song sung by johnny cash, i wiont stand down. its been played on radio talk show host steve malsburg almost everyday while he talks about the promblems we have in america today, with the politions in washington wanting tp take over our lives. i hope more people feel the way i do , we need something like this song to remind us.

As an Australian Veteran Soldier, I play this song on my guitar and think about the hard yards when I was in the Army. When they push you to the limits. But you would not give up. Great days. Thanks Mr Cash.

Great song, timeless, different memories for different people but meaning is the same. Always keep it with me through tuff times, once had a jerk boss named Howard & sang it for fun replacing the 'hell' word w/his name-that was cool & it gave me more strength as I leaned into the hardship!
