Like a Rock - Bob Seger (Video, Lyrics & Chords)

No puedo escuchar esta canción sin que fuego recorra por mis venas, ya han pasado más de 20 años desde que la escuché por primera vez, pero aún me siento como una roca, mis sueños sigue vivos y voy tras ellos.

Gracias Bob Seger por dejarnos una canción tan significativa.

[Capo on 1st fret]

G C G C
G
Stood there boldly sweatin' in the sun
C
Felt like a million, felt like number one
F C
The height of summer, I'd never felt that strong
G
Like a rock.

G
I was eighteen, didn't have a care
C
Workin' for peanuts, not a dime to spare
F C
But I was lean and solid everywhere
G
Like a rock.

G
My hands were steady, my eyes were clear and bright
C
My walk had purpose, my steps were quick and light
F C
And I held firm to what I felt was right
G
Like a rock.

G
Like a rock - I was strong as I could be
C
Like a rock - nothin' ever got to me
F C
Like a rock - I was something to see
G
Like a rock.

Em
And I stood arrow straight, unencumbered by the weight
G
Of all these hustlers and their schemes
C
I stood proud, I stood tall, high above it all
Am D
I still believed in my dreams.

[SOLO]

G
Twenty years now, where'd they go
C
Twenty years - I don't know
F C G
I sit and I wonder sometimes where they've gone

G C
And sometimes late at night - oh when I'm bathed in the firelight
F C
The moon comes callin' a ghostly white

And I recall, I recall.

G
Like a rock - standin' arrow straight
C
Like a rock - chargin' from the gate
F C
Like a rock - carryin' the weight
G
Like a rock.
G
Like a rock - the sun upon my skin
C
Like a rock - hard against the wind
F C
Like a rock - I see myself again
G
Like a rock,

Oh, like a rock.

[SOLO]
