I Ain't Goin' Down

Written by Shania Twain/R.J. Lange
(Recorded by Shania Twain)

Chorus:
I'm gonna hold on -
'cause what i believe in is so strong
No matter how long, no one
Cant 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

Repeat Chorus

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

Repeat Chorus

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 and hope
Oh, oh, oh

Instrumental Solo

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

Repeat Chorus (2x)

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