lyrics

nothing in this world will bring me down
nothing in this world can bring me down
there’s no power I believe
can do worse than I done to me
Nothing in this world can bring me down

Nothing here will put chains on me
Nothing here can put chains on me
Freedom is between your ears
After all my wasted years
Nothing here can put chains on me

I’ve been the soil, that’s over now
I’ve seen enough rain,
I’ve been through my last drought
I’ve been the soil, I’m gonna be the plough
Try to walk on me again
And I’ll chew you up now

Nobody ever took a thing from me
Nobody’s gonna take a thing from me
All I lost, I gave away
I’m the only one to blame
Nobody ever took a thing from me

Chorus

Don’t you tell me where I’m gonna go
You can’t tell me where I’m gonna go
No one knows, I hear them talk,
But I sit back and watch them walk
Don’t you tell me where I’m gonna go
