Tough Lyrics

by Craig Morgan

Shes in the kitchen at the crack of dawn
Bacons on, coffees strong
Kids running wild, taking off their clothes
If shes a nervous wreck, well it never shows

Takes one to football and one to dance
Hits the Y for aerobics class
Drops by the bank, stops at the store
Has on a smile when I walk through the door

The last to go to bed, shell be the first one up
And I thought I was tough

Shes strong, pushes on, cant slow her down
She can take anything life dishes out
There was a time back before she was mine
When I thought I was tough

We sat there five years ago
The doctors let us know, the test showed
Shed have to fight to live, I broke down and cried
She held me and said, "Its gonna be alright"

She wore that wig to church
Pink ribbon pin there on her shirt
No room for fear, full of faith
Hands held high singing, 'Amazing Grace'

Never once complained refusing to give up
And I thought I was tough

Shes strong, pushes on, cant slow her down
She can take anything life dishes out
There was a time back before she was mine
When I thought I was tough

Shes a gentle word, the sweetest kiss
A velvet touch against my skin
Ive seen her cry, Ive seen her break
But in my eyes shell always be strong

There was a time back before she was mine
When I thought I was tough
