Joe Diffie — Tougher Than Nails lyrics

Little boy walks in with a bloody nose,
Got beat up on his way home from school, aga-in,
His dad caught him running out the back,
Tears in his eyes and a baseball bat, oo revenge,

(Bridge)
Said son I won't stop ya, but before you go,
Let me tell you a little story bout the toughest man I know,

(Chorus:)
You hit him and he just turns the other cheek,
Don't think for a minute he was weak,
Cause in the end he showed them,
He was any-thing but frail,
They hammered him to a cross,
But he was tougher than nails,

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/joe-diffie-tougher-than-nails-lyrics.html ]
Well he droped that bat like it weighed a ton,
Father put his arms around his son and said, just let it go--oo,
Believe me I've been in your shoes,
Had to ask myself what would Jesus do, here's what I know,

(Bridge)
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,

(Chorus:)
Hit him and he just turns the other cheek,
Don't think for a minute he was weak,
Cause in the end he showed them,
He was any-thing but frail,
They hammered him to a cross,
But he was tougher than nails,
Yea in the end he showed them,
He was any-thing but frail,
They hammered him to a cross,
But he was tougher than nails,
Tougher than nails, oh, oh, oh,
