  • This town splits right down the middle
    There's rich and poor, black and white
    Right down through the saints and the sinners
    And the ones who might

    This world is tough as a splinter
    There's ones that flinch and ones that fight
    Round here you can sure tell the difference
    'Tween the rocks and the rolling types

    I know I'm gonna stick with ya
    When the hard times hit

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
    In the lightning, when it pours
    Be strong enough to lean on
    Show you what a backbone's for

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
    Somebody's gotta stand

    Well, nobody likes a white flag quitter
    Leaves you there, tucks and runs
    Life's comin' and it hits like a hammer
    Kicks like a shotgun

    I ain't out here looking for trouble
    I'm no stranger to an uphill fight
    You need a hand when it all starts slipping?
    You can bet I'm-a hold on tight

    You know I'm gonna stick with ya
    When the hard times hit

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
    In the lightning, when it pours
    Be strong enough to lean on
    Show you what a backbone's for

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm

    What?
    What?
    Okay
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    So tough, I keep it rough
    Won't back down, I laugh at these clowns
    Me and my crew, we keep it Trump-tight
    Live yours boy, this is my life
    I stick my chest out so there's no doubt
    I had enough, no trust, win I must
    As I stomp through the rain
    The pain rushes through my vein
    But I still maintain, nah!
    Checked out, I'm off duty
    Insane like Busey
    Now who wants test we?
    Now see I'm the best at it
    You just like the rest at it
    I'm sick like a meth addict
    But ain't no intervention
    Just your apprehension
    And then your dissension
    Shots to your dome
    Send you home
    Screaming no backbone

    That's how we show you what a backbone's for, baby
    Let's go!

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
    In the lightning, when it pours
    Be strong enough to lean on
    Show you what a backbone's for

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
    In the lightning, when it pours
    Be strong enough to lean on
    Show you what a backbone's for

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm (somebody)
    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm

    Show you what a backbone
    Show you what a backbone
    Show you what a backbone
    Show you what a backbone's for

    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm (somebody)
    Somebody's gotta stand in the storm (somebody)
    Somebody gotta
    Somebody gotta, yeah
