  • Lyrics: I’M STILL HERE © 1997 Marty Rainone & Gordon Ellis I once had a voice in this country I pulled my weight and brought home my share Now that same loyalty and dedication Doesn’t seem to get me anywhere The cutbacks and shrinkin’ of the dollar Continue to downsize my life But no matter the color of my collar My contribution must be recognized (’Cause) I’M STILL HERE--pullin’ eighteen wheels I’M STILL HERE--makin’ cars and pourin’ steel You can minimize the difference that I make You can close your eyes and even turn away But I’M STILL HERE The boys who make the rules and wield the power Keep on lookin’ out for Number One While frustration is growin’ by the hour On the lines where the job is gettin’ done (Hey!) I’M STILL HERE--sortin’ mail and servin’ meals I’M STILL HERE--on the phones and in the fields You can minimize the difference that I make You can close your eyes and even turn away But I’M STILL HERE Br. We’re all in this together dependin’ on each other We’ve gotta find a way where everybody wins (Hey!) I’M STILL HERE--raisin’ kids and payin’ bills I’M STILL HERE--keepin’ my end of the deal You can minimize the difference that I make You can close your eyes and even turn away I’M STILL HERE I’M STILL HERE Contact Gordon Ellis (615) 329-8917 or gordelmusic@hotmail.com
