If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough
written by Roger Alan Wade
from the album "All Likkered Up"
tabbed 9/24/05


INTRO: G  C  D  G

N/C                                  C
If you're gonna be dumb, ya gotta be tough
D                                            G
When you get knocked down you gotta get back up
                                               C
I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough, to know
D                                   G
If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough

                            C
I lit my brain with rot-gut whiskey
D                        G
'Til my pain was chicken fried
                            C
And I had dudes with badges frisk me
D                           G
And teach me how to swallow pride

                            C
I took advice no fool would take
D                         G
I got some habits I can't shake
                                             C
Ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough, to know
D                                   G
If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough

N/C                                 C
If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough
D                                           G
When you get knocked down ya gotta get back up
                                 C
That's the way it is in life and love
D                                   G
If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough


BREAK: G  C  D  G

                                C
I been up and down and down and out
D                         G
I been left and right and wrong
                                  C    
Well I walk the walk and I run my mouth
D                              G
Been on that short end for too long

                                       C
But if they gave medals for honky tonk wars
D                                G
Hell I'd keep mine in my chester drawers
                             C
With my RS bills and divorce papers and all that stuff
D                                   G
If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough

N/C                                  C
If you're gonna be dumb, ya gotta be tough
D                                           G
When you get knocked down ya gotta get back up
                                               C
I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I know enough, to know
D                                   G
If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough
D                                   C
If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough
G
