Will Trace Adkins’ Song ‘Tough People Do’ Be Mitt Romney’s New Theme Song [VIDEO]

Trace Adkins broke out a new song for his performance at the Republican Convention and some experts think it would be perfect as Mitt Romney’s new theme song.

Here’s a video of Adkins performing the song…

Now, “Tough People Do” hasn’t officially been released yet, but with all of the buzz around it, Trace decided to post the lyrics at his Website.

Here they are…

TOUGH PEOPLE DO

Written By Chris DuBois, Jason Matthews and Joel Shewmake

Back in 39 she was 26

The wife of a soldier tryin’ to raise four kids

On rationed out beans and watered down milk

Tryin’ to keep ‘em all warm with a patchwork quilt

That great depression ended about 1945

But grandma lived to be 92

See, tough times don’t last

Tough people do

Tough people pull themselves up by the bootstraps

When they hit hard luck

And they stay strong and they keep on fightin’

Like they don’t know how to lose

Tough times don’t last

Tough people do

Those talkin’ heads on cnn

Say we’ll never get out of this hole we’re in

Price of gas is up and the market’s down

And there’s a bunch of empty houses in every town

Well, i’d interrupt that program with a little headline of my own

This just in from the old red, white and blue

Tough times don’t last

Tough people do

Tough people pull themselves up by the bootstraps

When they hit hard luck

And they stay strong and they keep on fightin’

Like they don’t know how to lose

Tough times don’t last

Tough people do

I’ve been out of work since mid july

My bank account’s about bone dry

Been lookin’ for a job no luck so far

But I bought a little time when I sold my car

Well, I’ll go dig a ditch if that’s what it takes

Baby, somehow or another we’ll get through

Tough times don’t last

Tough times don’t last

Tough people do

Tough people do
