I Ain't Goin' Down [Red]



I'm gonna hold on--'cause what I believe in is so strongNo matter how long, no oneCan tell me I'm wrong--I ain't goin' down
I had a baby at fifteen--daddy never did forgive meI never heard from the guy againI had to drop outta high school--everybody treated me so cruelBut I didn't give in and giver her away
Repeat Chorus
Her smile got me through the day--and every night I'd prayI could give her enoughAt night I'd lie awake and cry--hopin' we'd get by'Cause you can't live on love
I worked night and day to keep us goin'Through the sweat and tearswithout her knowin'It was worth it just to watch her growOh, oh, at least I was able to hold herWhenever she needed my shoulderI'm so glad I never let her go
Repeat Chorus
Her smile got me through the years--dried away the tearsAnd filled me with hopeAt night I'd lie awake and cry--prayed we would get byAnd for the courage to copeOh, oh, oh
Instrumental solo
Her smile got me through the day--and every night I'd prayI could give her enough
Repeat Chorus (2x)
No on can tell me I'm wrongI ain't goin' down
