Don Williams – Stronger Back lyrics

I had everything, lost it all
I built towers of gold, an' watched em' fall
I tried my best but I guess my best
Just wasn't good enough

I made promises and broke em'
I've laid loved ones lives wide open
And I've got a broken heart
But I've come this far
And I ain't givin' up

I pray for a stronger back
I pray for a bigger heart
I pray for the will to keep on walkin’
When the way is dark
I follow that windin’ road
Just try to stay on track
I don't pray for a lighter load
I pray for a stronger back

I've seen losers get a second chance
I've seen miracles and happenstance
I've seen long shots come from way behind
To win the race

And I've had dreams blow up
In a cloud of smoke
It's a world of pain
It's a world of hope
And It's dark right now
But I know somehow
Someday the sun will find a way
To shine down on my face

I pray for a stronger back
I pray for a bigger heart
I pray for the will to keep on walkin’
When the way is dark
I follow that windin’ road
Just try to stay on track
I don't pray for a lighter load
I pray for a stronger back

I follow that windin’ road
Just try to stay on track
I don't pray for a lighter load
I pray for a stronger back
