The Tears of Joy

Must've cried a thousand tears by now
Enough that if she wanted she could drown
Just a few more years before the rain stops pourin' down
Maybe then she'll see the sun instead of clouds
She just needs someone that she can trust
She just needs someone that she can love
She just wants to win for once
She just wants to smile with the sun

Chorus:
One for her daddy when he just stood by
When he just stood and watched her cry
One for her mama when she said goodbye
When she drove away under the Nebraska sky
One for the time that boy left her in the night
When she told him no, somethin' he don't like
There's somethin' about a country girl you can't destroy
And she won't sit around and be a toy
No matter how you scream and raise your voice
These are the tears of Joy

Must've cried herself an ocean by the end of sixteen years
She prayed to God sayin', take me any place but here
Then she fell asleep, wipin' her own tears
And she dreamt of a place where the sky is clear
She just needs somebody to prove her wrong
'Cause she's hardly held a smile all along
She just wants to be in someone's arms
Oh, because she's never known a love that stayed strong

One for her daddy when he just stood by
When he just stood and watched her cry
One for her mama when she said goodbye
When she drove away under the Nebraska sky
One for the time that boy left her in the night
When she told him no, somethin' he don't like
There's somethin' about a country girl you can't destroy
And she won't sit around and be a toy
No matter how you scream and raise your voice
These are the tears of Joy

Bridge:
She met a boy in a Chevy truck
At just sixteen she fell in love
With some help from up above
She finally found that someone
She cried as she walked down the isle
And as she gave birth to their first child
As she grew old by his side
There's somethin' about a country girl you can't destroy
These are the tears of Joy
These are the tears of Joy

One for her daddy when he just stood by
When he just stood and watched her cry
One for her mama when she said goodbye
When she drove away under the Nebraska sky
One for the time that boy left her in the night
When she told him no, somethin' he don't like
There's somethin' about a country girl you can't destroy
And she won't sit around and be a toy
No matter how you scream and raise your voice
These are the tears of Joy
There's somethin' about a country girl you can't destroy
These are the tears of Joy
