Intro:

G, C, D, G


G-                                    C     
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough,
D                                             G  
 When you get knocked down you gotta get back up,
G                                               C                   
 I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough to know,
D                                     G     
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.


G                              C   
 I lit my brain with rot-gut whisky,
D                           G    
 'Till my pain was chicken fried,
G                            C        
 And I had dudes with badges frisk me,
D                            G     
 And Teach me how to swallow pride,
G                             C   
 I took advice no fool would take,
D                          G     
 I got some habits I can't shake,
G                                               C                   
 I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough to know, 
D                                     G     
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.


G-                                    C    
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough, 
D                                             G 
 When you get knocked down you gotta get back up,
G                                 C   
 That's the way it is in life and love,
D                                     G    
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.


G, C, D, G


G                                   C
 I've been up and down and down and out,
D                             G
 I've been left and right and wrong,
G                                  C
 Well I walk the walk and I run my mouth,
D                               G
 Been on that short end for too long,
G                                       C
 Well if they get medals for honky-tonk wars,
D                                     G
 Hell, I'd keep mine in my chest-of-drawers,
G                                        C
 With my RS Bills and Divorce Papers and all that stuff,
D                                     G    
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.


G-                                    C
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough, 
D                                        G
 When you get knocked down you gotta get back up,
G                                               C
 I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough to know,
D                                     G
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.
G                                     C
 If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.
