Halfway to Hazard - Got Back Up Lyrics


Was a smoke-filled room, was a Friday night
Talkin' to a sweet thing and having me a good time
Went through that door, big Jim walked in
He'd been pushing me around since we was kids
Well, I lowered my hat as he came toward me
I heart him say, hey you, but never saw him swing
Well, he knocked me down on that nasty floor
But something felt different than the times before

'Cause I got back up like my daddy taught
Life's gonna hurt you but you brush it off
Well, naw you can't quit, you gotta fight back son
When you find yourself on the ground, you gotta get back up

I worked ten long years in a deep coal mine
Until the roof caved in and it broke my spine
They put up in a chair and the doctor said,
"I hate to tell you son, you ain't gonna walk again."
So I closed my eyes and prayed to the Lord
And then a fire ran through me that moment before

I got back up like my daddy taught
Life's gonna hurt you but you brush it off
Well, naw you can't quit, you gotta fight back son
When you find yourself on the ground, you gotta get back up

When my time comes and they lay me down
In an old pine box in that cold, cold ground
I won't rest in peace too long before
Heaven calls my name and my spirit soars
And I'll get back up when that trumpet sounds
Naw, there ain't no grave gonna hold me down
I'll meet my Father when that day comes
And it's all because
And it's all because
I got back up

[Thanks to Ashley for lyrics]
