​Can't Keep A Good Man Down

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album Night Rider (1980).

You gave me reason to be living
You gave me reason to be glad
You gave me reason to believe
When you turned around to leave
I'd lost the only friend I had

You gave no warning of deception
You gave no signs that I could see
You built me up till I could stand
So you could quietly take a hand
And knock the legs from under me

You push a good man down
You push a good man around
You keep a good man guessing
With false impressions
You can knock him down
You can leave him lying on shaky ground
But baby you will never
Never keep a good man down

But you gave me reason to be
You gave me 'cause to carry on
So all the lies that you disguise
All the elements of surprise
Ain't gonna keep me down for long
You push a good man down
You push a good man around
You keep a good man guessing
With false impressions
You can knock him down
You can leave him lying on shaky ground
But baby you will never
Never keep a good man down
