Folks call me a maverick
I just never been the kind to go along
For the sake of conformation
And I'll admit I tend to sing a different song
To wear a different hat
This old world might still be flat
Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained
Well, I have been accused
There must be rebel blood
But I ain't no hypocrite
And that's the only way I know
Old Noah took much ridicule
But after forty days and forty nights
Sometimes it's best to brave the wind and rain
Well, there's more folks than a few
But they're worried
They'd like to buck the system
And they're a little scared
But if you're gonna leave your mark
You got to listen to your heart
Sometimes you got to go against the grain
Sometimes you've got to go against the grain
