The Ballad of El Goodo

Years ago, my heart was set to live, oh
But I've been trying hard against unbelievable odds
It gets so hard at times like now to hold on
My guns they're waiting to be stuck by
At my side is God

And there ain't no one gonna turn me round
Ain't no one gonna turn me round

Theres people around who tell you that they know
The places where they send you, and its easy to go
They'll zip you up and dress you down
Stand you in a row
But you know you don't have to
You can just say no

And there ain't no one gonna turn me round
Ain't no one gonna turn me round
Ain't no one gonna turn me round
Ain't no one gonna turn me round

I've been built up and trusted
Broke down and busted
But they'll get theirs and we'll get ours
Just if we can
Just, ah, hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

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

Ain't no one gonna turn me round
Ain't no one gonna turn me round
Ain't no one gonna turn me round
Ain't no one gonna turn me round
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

[alternate lines of last verse:]
Years ago I was all set to go
And I've been trying hard against long odds
It gets so hard at times like this to even hang around
I can either stand or fall
And I believe I'm gonna stand tall
Big Star - The Ballad of El Goodo

This song is dedicated to everyone who is trying hard against strong odds... in whatever it is you do. Keep God at your side and hold on... you are not alone!

My sincere thanks to Matthew and Kerry... who will be together soon... and to Olly for all her love and encouragement. Hold on!
