Don't Back Down

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

A new Hunter/Lauderdale song in 2012.

Move straight ahead, don't retrogress
Right way to go is anybody's guess
Your's is as good as the next in line
Don't back-pedal ten times in nine

Don't change your mind till the facts are in
Then roll up your sleeves and begin again
Don't give up 'cause you got it wrong
Just admit it and come back strong

Don't turn tail just stand your ground
Don't derail and don't back down
Don't make a U-turn unprepared
Live and learn but don't run scared
Don't derail and don't back down

If you learn one thing and don't learn more
Don't call it quits till you see the score
Just keep your cool, don't flip your lid
They may call you the come-back kid

Don't turn tail just stand your ground
Don't derail and don't back down
Don't make a U-turn unprepared
Live and learn but don't run scared
Don't derail and don't back down

Don't turn tail just stand your ground
Don't derail and don't back down
Don't make a U-turn unprepared
Live and learn but don't run scared
Don't derail and don't back down

Don't turn tail just stand your ground
Don't derail and don't back down
