Survivor

from by Griffin

about

I had a 'cancer scare' years ago . . . it was nothing but that - a scare, and benign - but that led to this song. A Waylon Jennings-like Southern Rock song about surviving.

- Jeffrey Scott Stewart

lyrics

SURVIVOR

I’m a lonely rider
Still, I’m a survivor and I’m not goin’ down
I am not pretending
Life is never-ending, but it’s not ending now

I know this to be right . . .
What doesn’t kill me makes me strong
And I’m way too tough to die
It’s gonna be a long, long ride
It’s gonna be a long, long, long, long ride

There’s no use complaining
If it starts to raining and I’m hungry and cold
I might have been mistaken
But this trail I’ve taken is the one that I chose

I know this to be right . . .
What doesn’t kill me makes me strong
And I’m way too tough to die
It’s gonna be a long, long ride
It’s gonna be a long, long, long, long ride

If I had a chance to start over again
I’d prob’ly choose to head straight into the wind

I know this to be right . . .
What doesn’t kill me makes me strong
And I’m way too tough to die
It’s gonna be a long, long ride
It’s gonna be a long, long, long, long ride
‘Cause I have the heart to survive

I’m a lonely rider
Still, I’m a survivor and I’m not goin’ down
