Artist : American Aquarium
Song : Tough Folks

[Intro] : D Em G Em (x2)

[Verse 1] : 
D                 Em           G        Em
I'm caught in the shadows, the American South
          D       Em            G      Em
Somewhere between hypocrite and hallelujah
D        Em        G              Em
Six generations of barely gettin' by
    D              Em             G   Em
Six generations of hey, what's it to ya?
D                  Em               G           Em
When the only thing harder than the work is the luck
    D            Em             G       Em
The outcome's as hopeful as the evenin' news
D           Em      G        Em
And last November I saw firsthand
     D          Em     G           Em
What desperation makes good people do

[Chorus] : 
G          Em
Life ain't fair
D                          G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
                  Em
Tough times don't last
            D Em G Em
Tough folks do

[Verse 2] : 
D          Em                G           Em
See I come from a long line of Carolina farmers
    D      Em          G     Em
For years, tobacco was the answer
D           Em            G          EM
It kept the lights on and put food on the table
D        Em              G         Em
'Til the doctors started callin' it cancer
D               EM             G          Em
So we took to the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains
      D          Em       G             Em
With a harvest of corn and some copper line
    D         Em           G               Em
And we found you can get a little slice of heaven
     D          Em                G           Em
With some sugar yeast water and a whole lotta time

[Chorus] : 
G          Em
Life ain't fair
D                          G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
                  Em
Tough times don't last
            D Em G Em
Tough folks do

[Bridge] : 
Em              G                     C             G
Where I'm from a man's only worth the weight of his word and
Em            G                C        G
Respect ain't handed out, it's earned
Em                G                   C                  G
I've been runnin' with my back to the wall for seventeen years now
Em              C               G
And if it's one thing that I've learned, it's    

[Chorus] : 
G          Em
Life ain't fair
D                          G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
                  Em
Tough times don't last
            D Em G Em
Tough folks do

[Chorus] : 
G          Em
Life ain't fair
D          G
Saddle up, saddle up
           Em
Life ain't fair
D          G
Saddle up, saddle up
G          Em
Life ain't fair
D                          G
Saddle up, boy, and see it through
                  Em
Tough times don't last
            D Em G Em
Tough folks do
