I won't back down: Tom Petty is dead

The people who wrote the songs who define me - they keep a dyin' - this one at 66. One year younger than Mum. Might've trashed his body a little more than her, too.

As a 19 year old trying to work out what type of person I was this song came along and I still can't help but think it sort of does set out what I think is important.

"Well I know what's right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground"

I don't back down, but I have been known to slip sideways..

Well, I won't back down
No, I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down
No, I'll stand my ground
Won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground
And I won't back down
(I won't back down)
Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
Well I know what's right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down
(I won't back down)
Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I won't back down
(I won't back down)
Hey, baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
Hey, I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back down
