lyrics

well i’ve kicked against convention
till i’ve bled right through my shoes
shook my fist against tradition
like i ain’t got a thing to lose
and i’ve made believe i’m jesus christ
made believe i’m damned
and i’ve made those near and dearest think
i’m stronger than i am

but i ain’t gonna let no stone
ain’t gonna let no stone
ain’t gonna let no stone
cry out in my place

well i’ve seen the wicked worship
and i’ve seen the righteous fall
seen the mighty crumble
from the struggle of it all

oh but i’ve seen the slave delivered
and i’ve felt them mountains move
and i’ve seen the nations tremble
when just one man lives the truth

but i ain’t gonna let no stone
ain’t gonna let no stone
ain’t gonna let no stone
cry out in my place

some say you’re a tyrant
some would swear you’re dead
some say every lie they speak
are words that you once said

though i know better now than to listen
oh lord, sometimes i do
oh but i’m a dead man walking
if i don’t walk with you

so i ain’t gonna let no stone
ain’t gonna let no stone
ain’t gonna let no stone
cry out in my place
