Rodney Atkins – If You're Going Through Hell lyrics

Well you know those times when you feel like
There's a sign there on your back
That says I don't mind if you kick me, seems like everybody has
Things go from bad to worse
You think it can't get worse than that
And then they do


You step off the straight and narrow
And you don't know where you are
Used the needle of your compass, to sew up your broken heart
Ask directions from a genie in a bottle of jim beam
And she lies to you
That's when you learn the truth

[Chorus:]

If you're goin' through hell keep on going
Don't slow down
if you're scared don't show it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there

I've been deep down in that darkness
I've been down to my last match
Felt a hundred different deamons breathin' fire down my back
And I knew that if I stumbled I'd fall right into the trap
That they were layin'


But the good news is there's angels everywhere out on the street
Holdin' out a hand to pull you back up on your feet

The one's that you've been draggin' for so long
You're on your knees might as well be prayin'
Guess what I'm sayin'


[Chorus:]

If you're goin' through hell keep on going
Don't slow down if you're scared don't show it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there
When you're goin' through hell keep on movin'
Face that fire walk right through it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there

If you're goin' through hell keep on going
Don't slow down if you're scared don't show it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there
When you're goin' through hell keep on movin'
Face that fire walk right through it
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there
You might get out before the devil even knows you're there

    The song "If You're Going Through Hell", a #1 country hit, became Rodney Atkins' signature song, telling the story about the breaking down the walls of life standing in your way. The inspirational story relates to Atkins, whose adoptive parents helped him through a childhood respiratory infection and taught him the value of perseverance. In a city crowded with stars, Rodney joined the Nashville's top country singers soon after releasing his debut album in 2003. Back in 2006, "If You're Going Through Hell" had a big impact on one of his fans that year. Learning that this fan was dying of cancer, Rodney arranged a visit to her hospital room in Michigan, where he played a tune or two for her. This hit song tells.
    This was written by the husband and wife songwriting team of Sam and Annie Tate, along with the Nashville songwriting mainstay Dave Berg. The trio also collaborated on the Reba McEntire hit "Somebody". Atkins has made many appearances at children's hospitals where he performs this song for patients who are sometimes terminal. An early example was on October 25, 2006, when he played the song in the hospital room of a young St. Clair, Michigan girl named Maddie Trudel, who was dying of cancer.

    The theme of this song is if you are having a bad time and things just keep getting worst just know that things can get even more worse even if you think that they can't. You just need to keep moving on and you will eventually run into some good luck latter on down the road.
