Lynyrd SkynyrdBackstreet Crawler

(r. hall, e. king, g. rossington) I snuck around the corner he had this guy down I through the first punch that's when he hit the ground To survive in the street you gotta win the first round 'cause if you want eat you gotta be the baddest one around I'm a backstreet crawler Daddy paid for college I earned a degree Got a job up on wall street Where I learned to make the little man bleed That's when I got stomped like a cattle stampede Had a nervous breakdown all my friends and family left me (chorus) Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler When you see them on the concrete it's their spirit that's harder Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler Where your ego meets defeat and your pride can't get no smaller Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler I guess you might say it sure is a shame I used to have everything oh how my life has changed Yeah I'm broken and torn I've never been free Lost everything that meant a thing to me (repeat chorus)
