Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – I Won't Back Down lyrics

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
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.
Well I know what's right, I got just on life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll 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

    The God given unalienable right that is the basic constitution of yourself and thus so no matter where you are, for instance, on the edge of the abyss, 'at the gates of hell', 'i won't back down' the song tells it like it is but I relate it unto the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. The song is a great source of strength for many and many more to come. Thank you, Tom.
