Tougher Than Nails

This song is by Joe Diffie and appears on the album Tougher Than Nails (2004).

A little boy walks in with a bloody nose
Got beat up on his way home from school...
Again!
His dad caught him runnin' out the back,
Tears in his eyes and a baseball bat.
Ooh revenge!
Said "son I won't stop you but before you go,
Let me tell you a little story 'bout the
Toughest man I know.

They hit him and he just turned the other cheek
Don't think for a minute, he was weak
'Cause in the end, he showed them,
He was anything but frail...
They hammered him to a cross
But he was tougher than nails.

Well he dropped that bat like it weighed a ton
Father put his arms around his son and said...
Just let it go...
Believe me I've been in your shoes
Had to ask myself "what would Jesus do"
And here's what I know.
Whenever I'm in doubt I look up what he said
It's all there in the good book
In black and white and red.

They hit him and he just turned the other cheek
Don't think for a minute, he was weak
'Cause in the end, he showed them,
He was anything but frail...
They hammered him to a cross
But he was tougher than nails!

Yeah in the end, he showed them
He was anything but frail,
They hammered him to a cross
But he was tougher than nails!

Tougher from nails!

Ooh ooh oh oh!
