Don't Give Up
Willie Nelson Lyrics


In this proud land we grew up strong we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight taught to win I never thought I could fail
No fight left or so it seems I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face I've changed my name but no one wants you when you lose
Don't give up cause you have friends don't give up you're not beaten yet
Don't give up I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around I never thought that I could be affected
I thought that we would be the last to go it is so strange the way things turn
Drove the night toward my home the place that I was born on the lakeside
And as daylight broke I saw the earth the trees had burned down to the ground
Don't give up you still have us
Don't give up we don't need much of anything
Don't give up cause somewhere there's a place there's a place where we belong

Got to walk out of here I can't take anymore
I'm gonna stand on that bridge keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come and whatever may go
That river's flowing that river's flowing

Moved on to another town tried hard to settle down
For every job so many men so many men no one needs
Don't give up cause you have friends don't give up you're not the only one
Don't give up no reason to be ashamed don't give up you still have us
Don't give up now we're proud of who you are
Don't give up you know it's never been easy
Don't give up cause I believe there's a place there's a place where we belong

[Verse 1]
In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail
No fight left, or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose

[Chorus]
Don't give up, because you have friends
Don't give up, you're not beaten yet
Don't give up, I know you can make it good

[Verse 2]
Though I saw it all around
I never thought that I could be affected
I thought that we would be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn
Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born on the lakeside
And as daylight broke I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

[Chorus]
Don't give up, you still have us
Don't give up, we don't need much of anything
Don't give up, because somewhere there's a place
There's a place where we belong

[Verse 3]
Got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
I'm going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river's flowing [x2]
Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job so many men
So many men no one needs

[Chorus]
Don't give up, because you have friends
Don't give up, you're not the only one
Don't give up, no reason to be ashamed
Don't give up, you still have us
Don't give up now, we're proud of who you are
Don't give up, you know it's never been easy
Don't give up, because I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong

One of my favorite Peter Gabriel songs. I had no idea Willie covered it until here now in 2021. A beautiful song that resonates with any culture/time.

I literally, actually just got laid off this morning -- just a few hours ago. I'm sitting in the bathroom hiding from my husband and kids and crying, and the notification for this came on. My tears are a little less sad now. Thank you 💜

You should share with your husband, he would understand It's just a blip in your life and is probably the best thing for you.Stay strong ,xx

Willie Nelson in 2019 is still better than any of the new country singers
