I Won’t Back Down

Well I won’t back down, no I won’t back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down

No I’ll 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

Chorus
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 one life
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
But I’ll stand my ground and I won’t back down

[Chorus 3X] . . . no I won’t back down

Note:  This post is dedicated to Maria Young, a loving mother, and former NYC public school teacher and PTA leader.  This is also a reminder to those who see things they don’t like in this world that it is within The Realm of Possibility they can do something about it . . . but they MUST take action.
