11 I'm Gunna Rise Again
I'm Gunna Rise Again

Then he said to me and I quote
I’m gunna rise again
A hungry growl down in his throat
I’m gunna rise again

I’m gunna rise

In the alley behind the parking lot
I’m gunna rise again
Give me everything you’ve got
I’m gunna rise again

The sweat was heavy on my brow
Good lord don’t you fail me now

I can’t deny this monkey on my back it’s big enough for the world to see
I can’t deny this monkey on my back, it’s big enough to carry me

You’ve taken all you’re gunna steal
Find someone else to make your deal

You can walk away but this ain’t the end, he said
I’m gunna rise again
Sooner or later you’re gunna need a friend
Then I’ll rise again, I’m gunna rise

I can’t deny this monkey on my back it’s big enough for the world to see
I can’t deny this monkey on my back, it’s big enough to carry me (bury me)

And I can’t forget the last thing that he said
And lately baby, I could use a friend
