They made only one of me packed me one to the box
And they'll know I've been here before I'm through
If I walk or if I crawl if I stand or if I fall let no man tell me what to do
If the picking's lean and if all of my dreams don't come true
I may never have a lot but you can bet I call the shots
So let no man tell me what to do
[ strings ]
When the good love comes along you get yours I got mine
I've done alright even though I've missed a few
I stand one man among men if I sink or if I swim let no man tell me what to do
If the picking's lean...
So let no man tell me what to do
