I Ain't Goin' Down  Shania Twain

Simple tab, simple chords. Easy enough, it's in Standard tuning.
1st Chorus:
I'm gonna [C]hold on--
'cause what I bel[F]ieve in is[C] so s[G]trong
No matter h[F]ow lo[C]ng, no one
Can tell me I'm [F]wrong--I ain't [C]goi[G]n' d[C]own
I had a baby at fifteen--
[F]daddy never did forgive me
[C]I never heard from the guy ag[G]ain
[C]I had to drop outta high school--
[F]everybody treated me so cruel
[C]But I didn't give in and gi[G]ve her aw[C]ay
(Repeat Chorus)
Her s[Am]mile g[Em]ot me through the da[F]y--
and every night I'd p[C]ray
I could give her eno[G]ugh
At [Am]night I'd l[Em]ie awake and c[F]ry--
hopin' we'd get [C]by
'Cause you can't live on lo[G]ve
I worked ni[D]ght and day to keep us goin'
Through the s[G]weat and tears
without her knowin'
[D]It was worth it just to watch her g[A]row
Oh, oh, at le[D]ast I was able to hold her
Wh[G]enever she needed my shoulder
I[D]'m so glad I never l[A]et her [D]go
2nd Chorus:
[D]I'm gonna hold on--
'cause what I bel[G]ieve [D]in is so st[A]rong
No matter h[G]ow lo[D]ng, no one
Can tell me I'm [G]wrong--I ain't [D]goi[A]n' d[D]own
Her s[Bm]mile g[A]ot me through the y[G]ears--
dried away the te[D]ars
And filled me with h[A]ope
At n[Bm]ight I'd li[A]e awake and c[G]ry--
p[Bm]rayed we would get [D]by
And for the courage to c[A]ope
Oh, oh, oh
Her s[Bm]mile g[A]ot me through the d[G]ay--
and every night I'd p[D]ray
I could give her eno[A]ugh
Repeat 2nd Chorus (2x)
[D]No one can tell me I'm wr[G]ong
I ain't [D]goi[A]n' do[D]wn
