Original video
Years ago my heart was set to live, oh
And I been trying hard against unbelievable odds
It gets so hard at times like now, oh
But guns remain to be stuck by, at my side is God

And there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round
There ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round

There's people around who tell you that they know
And places that they'll send you and it's easy to go
They'll zip you up and dress you down and stand you in a row
But you don't have to, you could just say no

And there ain't no one going to turn me 'round
There ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round
There ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round
There ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round

I been built up and trusted
Been broke down and busted
But they'll get theirs and we will get ours
If we can just hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

Years ago my heart was set to live, oh
And I been trying hard against strong odds
It gets so hard at times like now to hold on
But I'll fall if I don't fight it and at my side is God

And there ain't no one going to turn me 'round
There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
There ain't no one going to turn me 'round

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
