Can't Stop Me Now

I stood on the street and sang
For the record company man
My enthusiasm filled the room

I was young and I was keen
With the devil in my stream
As I hollered out an old blues tune

We can't sign you son
'Cause you don't fit in the mold
It's your hair and your nose and your clothes
I said thank you gentlemen
For this opportunity
And moved on down the road
I remember how I used to say

(Chorus)
They can't stop me now
The world is waiting
It's my turn to stand out in the crowd
They can't stop me now
The tide is turning
I'm gonna make you proud
So proud...So proud..

Well it was rough and it was tough
But I couldn't get enough
Of this rhythm and blues I crave

I was singing in the pubs
Singing in the clubs
Then along came "Maggie May".

All the things were said to me
And all the things I heard
I had a point to prove
I will climb this mountain
With this God-given gift
If it's the last thing that I do
And I remember thinking

They can't stop me now
The world is waiting
It's my turn to stand out in the crowd
They can't stop me now
The tide is turning
I'm gonna make you proud

Born to ramble, born to sing
In a new world of rock n roll
One man in particular filled my heart with pride
And he fired up my soul
Thanks for the faith
Thanks for the patience
Thanks for the helping hand
Thanks for the love
Thanks for the guidance
Thanks for the tartan pride

They can't stop me now
The world is waiting
It's my turn to stand out in the crowd
They can't stop me now
The tide is turning
I'm gonna make you proud
