SHANIA TWAIN lyrics - I Ain't Goin' Down

SHANIA TWAIN
"I Ain't Goin' Down"
(Robert John "Mutt" Lange / Shania Twain)

I'm gonna hold on-
'Cause what I believe in is so strong
No matter how long, no one
Can tell me I'm wrong-I ain't goin' down

I had a baby at fifteen-
Daddy never did forgive me
I never heard from the guy again
I had to drop outta high school-
Everybody treated me so cruel
But I didn't give in and give her away

I'm gonna hold on-
'Cause what I believe in is so strong
No matter how long, no one
Can tell me I'm wrong-I ain't goin' down

Her smile got me through the day-
And every night I'd pray
I could give her enough
At night I'd lie awake and cry-
Hopin' we'd get by
'Cause you can't live on love

I worked night and day to keep us goin'
Through the sweat and tears
Without her knowin'
It was worth it just to watch her grow
Oh, oh, at least I was able to hold her
Whenever she needed my shoulder
I'm so glad I never let her go

I'm gonna hold on-
'Cause what I believe in is so strong
No matter how long, no one
Can tell me I'm wrong-I ain't goin' down

Her smile got me through the years-
Dried away the tears
And filled me with hope
At night I'd lie awake and cry-
Prayed we would get by
And for the courage to cope
Oh, oh, oh

Her smile got me through the day-
And every night I'd pray
I could give her enough

I'm gonna hold on-
'Cause what I believe in is so strong
No matter how long, no one
Can tell me I'm wrong-I ain't goin' down

I'm gonna hold on-
'Cause what I believe in is so strong
No matter how long, no one
Can tell me I'm wrong-I ain't goin' down

No on can tell me I'm wrong
I ain't goin' down
