Tough With Me Lyrics

by Terri Clark

Your neck is burned, your body's hurtin'
Boss man's been on your back all day
You're out there in the hot sun workin'
While he's sippin' iced tea in the shade
You have to put up with so much and you feel beat up
But that's all about to fade away

Come on, lay your head down on my shoulder
Let your troubled mind go free
All day long you've had to be strong
But now you're home and I'll make you see
You don't have to be tough with me
You don't have to be tough with me

Just leave your boots there by the doorway
And I'll pour us both a glass of wine
And I'll bet I can think of some way
To help bring back your tender side
It's a heavy load to bear in your world out there
But tonight you're back in mine

Come on, lay your head down on my shoulder
Let your troubled mind go free
All day long you've had to be strong
But now you're home and I'll make you see
You don't have to be tough with me

There it is now, there you go
There's that smile I know
Let's keep it goin' all night long
All night long

Come on, lay your head down on my shoulder
Let your troubled mind go free
All day long you've had to be strong
But now you're home and I'll make you see
You don't have to be tough with me
You don't have to be tough with me
