[Intro] 
G G C C D D G G

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

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

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

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

[Instrumental]
G G C C D D G G

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

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

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