I Won't Back Down

I Won't Back Down ~ Tom Petty with George Harrison, Jeff Lynn (ELO), Ringo

Well I wont back down, no I wont back down.

You can stand me up at the gates of hell

But I wont 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 wont back down.

This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus. ~Revelation 14:12

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out.

Hey, uh huh, I will stand my ground.

And I wont back down.

Well I know what's right, I got just one life.

In a world that keeps on pushin' me around,

But I'll stand my ground and I wont back down.

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out.

I will stand my ground and I wont back down.

No, I wont back down.

Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. ~ Hebrews 9:27-28

Another Work-in-progress from my series

Quite a fun concert by the way - saw him last summer (in the rain) along with Steve Winwood. It was one giant sing-a-long. Petty's SuperBowl appearance (08) was one of the best in a long time - and he most definitely wins for "most improved" in the face department by sporting that new beard.

It's impossible to read those lyrics and NOT have the song stuck in your head for hours! That's one of those life soundtrack kind of songs. So you're onto big head by demand? What about my head on one of those fishy paintings? That would be awesome. hehe
