CHRIS HILLMAN lyrics - Back's Against The Wall

CHRIS HILLMAN
"Back's Against The Wall"

How can you tell if he's a worried man
By the way that he walks and by the way that he stands
He's workin' his way through the family path
Hands on the wheel, wheel spinning in the sand

And they love him in their own small way
The children listen to the songs he plays
The past you just can't hide away
A dream hangin' on from yesterday

When your back's against the wall tonight
And you won't surrender without a fight
And it's so far past what's wrong or right
When your back's against the wall tonight

Oh and what keeps him going through the long dark night
What gives this man the will to survive
And break on through and make it all right
When your back's against the wall

So button up your coat against the cold, cold wind
There's no guarantee anybody'll win
Too much about the money, too much about the sin
Get back and let the wheel turn over again

When your back's against the wall tonight
And you won't surrender without a fight
And it's so far past what's wrong or right
When your back's against the wall

When your back's against the wall tonight
You won't surrender without a fight
And it's so far past what's wrong or right
When your back's against the wall tonight
