   TOUGH LITTLE BOYS  Gary Allan

INTRO CHORDS:  G D Bm  G A D

G                    Fm   
I never once backed down from a punch 
          D7                     G 
Well I'd take it square on the chin
    Gm                     D 
Well I found out fast a bully's just that 
     Gm                        A  
And you've got to stand up to him
   D                   Fm  
So I didn't cry when I got a black eye 
    D7                     G
As bad as it hurt I just grinned
          Gm                    D         Bm     
But when tough little boys grow up to be Dads 
            G        A       D      
They turn into big babies a-gain
  Bm                          G 
Scared me to death when you took your first steps 
          D           A             D
Well I'd fall every time you fell down
           Bm                    G  
And your first day of school I cried like a fool
         D                          A
And I followed your school bus to town
     D                 Fm    
Well I didn't cry when old Yeller died 
    D7                        G
At least not in front of my friends
          Gm                    D         Bm  
But when tough little boys grow up to be Dads
            G        A        D   G D Bm   G A D 
They turn into big babies a-gain
      D                       Fm
Well I'm a grown man but as strong as I am
        D7                     G
Well sometimes it's hard to believe
    Gm                      D           Bm    
How one little girl with little blonde curls
      G              A  
Can totally terrify me 
    D                  Fm
If you were to ask my wife would just laugh
      D7                    G  
She'd say I know all about men
     Gm                    D         Bm           
How tough little boys grow up to be Dads
            G        A       D 
They turn into big babies a-gain

     Bm                   G  
Well I know one day I'll give you away 
     D             A              D 
And I'm gonna to stand there and smile
     Bm                  G    
But when I get home and I'm all alone
      D                            A    
Then I'll sit in your room for a-while
     D                 Fm    
Well I didn't cry when old Yeller died 
    D7                        G
At least not in front of my friends
          Gm                    D         Bm  
But when tough little boys grow up to be Dads
            G        A        D   G D Bm   G A D 
They turn into big babies a-gain
      Gm                    D         Bm
When tough little boys grow up to be Dads
           G          A      n.c.  G D Bm  G A D 
They turn into big babies a-gain
