                                       Eb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough
F                                            Bb
When you get knocked down you gotta get back up,
                                             Eb
I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough, to know,
F                                      Bb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough


                               Eb
I lit my brain with rotgut whisky
F                           Bb
Till my pain was chicken fried
                                 Eb
I've had dudes with badges frisk me,
F                          Bb
Teach me how to swallow pride


                              Eb
I took advice no fool would take
F                             Bb
I got some habits, I can't shake
                                             Eb
I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough, to know,
F                                      Bb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough


                                       Eb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough!
F                                            Bb
When you get knocked down you gotta get back up.
                                   Eb
That's the way it is in life and love
F                                     Bb
If your gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.


                                    Eb
I've been up and down and down and out
F                               Bb
I've been left and right and wrong
                                 Eb
Will walk the walk and run my mouth
F                               Bb
Been on that short end for to long
                                        Eb
But if they gave metals for honkie tonk f#ck$ng wars
F                                      Bb
Hell I'd keep mine in my chest o' drawers
                                         Eb
Well my IRS bills and divorce papers and all that stuff
F                                       Eb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough!


EVERYBODY!

                                       Eb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough!
F                                            Bb
When you get knocked down you gotta get back up.
                                             Eb
I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough, to know,
F                                      Bb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough
F                                      Bb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough

One more time!
                                       Bb
If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough

END.
