[Verse]
G           C              D       G
How can you tell if he's a worried man
       D           G            C           D
By the way that he walks by the way that he stands
     G           C            D      G
He's working his way thru the family plan
C                                    D
Hands on the wheel he'll spin in the sand  ??
         G        C        D         G
And they love him in their own small way
     D       G             C         D
The children listen to the songs he plays
    G        C          D     G
The past you just can't hide away
C                       C    D
A dream hangin on from yesterday
          G      C           D       G
When your back's against the wall tonight
        Em                 C
And you won't surrender without a fight
G                D          Em
And it's so far past what's wrong and right
          C                  D      G
When your back's against the wall tonight

D                                 C       G
Oh what keeps you going thru the long dark night
Em                      Bm
What gives this man the will to survive
D                     C            G
And break on thru and make it all right
          C                  D
When your back's against the wall
    G             C                D         G
So button up your coat against the cold cold wind
         D      G     C       D
Theres's no guarantte anybody wins
G                  C
Too much about the money
C   D              G
Too much about the sin
     C                                       D
Your banking that the wheel will turn over again
          G      C           D       G
When your back's against the wall tonight
        Em                  C
And you won't surrender without a fight
G               D            Em
And it's so far past what's wrong and right
          C                  D
When your back's against the wall
          D                  C       G
When your back's against the wall tonight
        Em                  C
And you won't surrender without a fight
G           D               Em
And it's so far past what's wrong and right
          C                  D      G
When your back's against the wall tonight
