[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]

About the artist behind Like A Rock Chords:

Bob Seger (born May 5, 1945) is an American rock and roll singer-songwriter and musician.

After years of local Detroit-area success, recording and performing in the mid-1960s, Seger achieved superstar status by the mid-1970s and continuing through the 1980s with the Silver Bullet Band. A roots rocker with a classic raspy, shouting voice, Seger was first inspired by Little Richard and Elvis Presley. He wrote and recorded songs that dealt with blue-collar themes. Seger has recorded many rock and roll hits, including "Night Moves", "We've Got Tonight", "Like a Rock" and also co-wrote the Eagles number one hit "Heartache Tonight." His iconic signature song "Old Time Rock and Roll" was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. With a career spanning five decades, Seger continues to perform and record today.

Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
