Tom Petty) (Pensacola, Florida, 3/9/94)
No, I won't back down (2x)
You can stand me up at the gates of Hell, but I won't back down
I will stand my ground, won't be turned around
I will keep my world from draggin' me down, I won't back down
No, I won't back down
Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey, I will stand my ground
No, I won't back down
Oh, I know what' sright, I got just one life
I wil keep this world from pushin' me around, I'l lstand my ground
No, I won't back down
Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out }
Hey, I will stand my ground } (2x)
And I won't back down }
And I won't back down, no I won't back down
