Kid Rock - Times Like These Lyrics




The lakes and pines they bleed of beauty and grace
And the rivers they run wild like an endless race
The forests soar so high then fall to the sea
As church bells ring and sing in harmony

I heard them say they're shuttin' Detroit down
But I won't leave cuz' this is my hometown

And it's times like these we can't replace
It's times like these we must embrace
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees
It makes us who we are, in times like these

The concrete and steel stand strong against the wind
With the memories of what was and what has been
The sounds of sweet soul music and blue-collar blues
There were 17 colors for a Chevy all red white and blue

I heard them say that you can't save that town
But I won't leave, I will stand my ground

And it's times like these we can't replace
It's times like these we must embrace
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees
It makes us who we are, in times like these

[Solo]

The ice and snow give way to a new spring bloom
In the wake that hope and faith they will be home soon
A new day dawns as the good Lord shines from above
Cuz in the rubble and rust there remains a whole lotta love

And I was here watchin' it all go down
And I'll still be, when it comes back around

And it's times like these we can't replace
It's times like these we must embrace
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees
It makes us who we are, in times like these
It makes us who we are in times like these

  6. MrDetroit1701

    No more Knuckle busters they got soft!

  7. MrDetroit1701

    Adapt Wisely or sease to exist.. thank God I only punch a clock.. whatever that's worth in this economy!

  8. MrDetroit1701

    This is true. Every business is either going clearance, partner to stay in business or like I see in every industrial area for lease or for sale. Bad business choices, fear, hesitation, letting employees crush your work force, unhealthy competition... Etc bye bye AMERICA.... We tried.. I guess?... Maybe next continent... Or country... Ride high 'til it's gone I guess that's the new business model... SMART!!!!!!!

    The most people here think (I don't know how true it is), that Americans are very crazy! It's not meant bad, it's just quiet funny. Don't be sad when you here about jokes against America(-ns). Also it's pretty sad that so many Americans are so fat and many Germans don't like it to see this. But don't be affraid, the normal American is our friend! ;)

  57. Elwood blues

  97. Zgoda

    I've been with kid rock the whole way-
    going through hard times, he was there for all of our stupid selves. He's been the voice that needs to be heard. Sure, we get down at times and want to open a good can of whoop ass, but when it comes down to it- it's all going to be alright in the end.
    Just goes to show that everyone has a little somethin in common- regardless of ethnicity, economic background, n everythin else.
    We was all born free- some just don't know it yet
    thanks my brother, Kid Rock

  98. Terry Arends

    Kid Rock is so down to earth!
