Song : Tough Folks

Intro : D Em G Em (x2)

Verse 1 :

D Em G Em
I'm caught in the shadows, the American South
D Em G Em
Somewhere between hypocrite and hallelujah
D Em G Em
Six generations of barely gettin' by
D Em G Em
Six generations of hey, what's it to ya?
D Em G Em
When the only thing harder than the work is the luck
D Em G Em
The outcome's as hopeful as the evenin' news
D Em G Em
And last November I saw firsthand
D Em G Em
What desperation makes good people do

Chorus :
G Em
Life ain't fair
D G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
Em
Tough times don't last
D Em G Em
Tough folks do

Verse 2 :
D Em G Em
See I come from a long line of Carolina farmers
D Em G Em
For years, tobacco was the answer
D Em G EM
It kept the lights on and put food on the table
D Em G Em
'Til the doctors started callin' it cancer
D EM G Em
So we took to the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains
D Em G Em
With a harvest of corn and some copper line
D Em G Em
And we found you can get a little slice of heaven
D Em G Em
With some sugar yeast water and a whole lotta time

Chorus :
G Em
Life ain't fair
D G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
Em
Tough times don't last
D Em G Em
Tough folks do

Em G C G
Where I'm from a man's only worth the weight of his word and
Em G C G
Respect ain't handed out, it's earned
Em G C G
I've been runnin' with my back to the wall for seventeen years now
Em C G
And if it's one thing that I've learned, it's

Chorus :
G Em
Life ain't fair
D G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
Em
Tough times don't last
D Em G Em
Tough folks do

Chorus :
G Em
Life ain't fair
D G
Saddle up, saddle up
Em
Life ain't fair
D G
Saddle up, saddle up
G Em
Life ain't fair
D G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
Em
Tough times don't last
D Em G Em
Tough folks do
