THE LAST REBEL


“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
“Citizenship in a Republic,”
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

Lynyrd Skynyrd The Last Rebel LIVE

There’s a grey horse standin’ still
As a soldier climbs in the saddle for one last ride
As the rain pours off his hat
You can see the shadows of the past written in his eyes

Now the cannons are silent
His friends are all gone
Gotta put it all behind him
If he ever wants to find his way home
He’s the last rebel on the road

Just a boy with his old guitar
Keeps to himself
but everybody takes him wrong
But he carries on
Got a dream that will never die
Can’t change him, no use in stayin’ where you don’t belong

Now he’s rollin’ down the highway
Gone too far too fast
No one will ever find him
he’ll never look back

Cause he’s the last rebel
And he’s all alone
He’s the last rebel
His friends are all gone
He’s the last rebel
The last rebel on the road

There’ll never be another like him
He’s the last of a dying breed
Ain’t no use in tryin’ to tame him

‘Cause he’s the last rebel
And he’s all alone
He’s the last rebel
His friends are all gone
He’s the last rebel
gotta carry on
He’s the last rebel
The last rebel on the road
