(Verse)
I remember dad all dressed underneath that old oak tree
The way we laid my grandpa down
For 13 years I’ve been his shadow, his little man
I was learning what hurt was all about

(Verse)
That was the first time I ever saw my daddy cry
And he said “Son, that’s the thing about life”

(Chorus)
Yea, the rain’s gonna fall on us all
Your heart’s gonna break sometimes
But there’s no way around it, life’s full mountains
You’re gonna have to climb
But there ain’t no crime in crying
You just gotta keep on trying
So remember, no matter what you’re going through
Tough times don’t last
Tough people do

(Verse)
Baby it’s been all smooth still and since we fell in love
But lately we’ve been on a rocky road
But if I know you like I think I do
You ain’t giving up
And there ain’t no way in this world I’m letting go

(Verse)
Baby God put us together
And He don’t make mistakes
Love is gonna be our shelter
From whatever comes our way

(Chorus)
Yea, the rain’s gonna fall on us all
Our hearts’ gonna break sometimes
But there’s no way around it, life’s full mountains
We’re gonna have to climb
But there ain’t no crime in crying
We just gotta keep on trying
So remember, no matter what we’re going through
Tough times don’t last
Tough people do

No, there ain’t no crime in crying
We just gotta keep on trying
So remember, no matter what you’re going through
Tough times don’t last
Tough people do
Tough times don’t last
Tough people do
Tough people do
