When you wake up in the mornin'
And you wonder
Why no one's beside you
Where I usually lay
And you think you hear the sound
Of distant thunder
That's just your old rock
Rollin' away

And I was a rock
Standin' strong for you
There was nothin'
I wouldn't do
No matter the cost
I was ready to pay
Now you say I'm only
Holdin' you down
Like some old rock
You've been draggin' around
Yes, I'm a rock
But...I'm rollin' away

I'm rollin' away
On a downhill grade
I'm gonna come to rest
'Side a mountain we'd love someday
And I finally understand
When you're restin'
In old shifting sand
Even rock goes rollin' away

And I was a rock
Standin' strong for you
There was nothin'
I wouldn't do
No matter the cost
I was ready to pay
Now you say I'm only
Holdin' you down
Like some old rock
You've been draggin' around
Yes, I'm a rock
But...I'm rollin' away

Yes, I'm a rock
But...I'm rollin' away
