"I Ain't Goin' Down [Audio from Up! Close and Personal DVD]" as written by Robert John Lange and Shania Twain....
[Chorus]
I'm gonna hold on
Cause what I believe in is so strong
No matter how long, no one
Can tell me I'm wrong I ain't going down

I had a baby at fifteen
Daddy never did forgive me
I never heard from the guy again
I had to drop out of high school
Everybody treated me so cruel
But I didn't give in and give her away

[Chorus]

Her smile got me through the day
And every night I'd pray
I could give her enough
At night I'd lie awake and cry
Hoping we'd get by
Cause you can't live on love

I worked night and day to keep us goin'
Through the sweat and tears
Without her knowin'
It was worth it just to watch her grow
Oh, oh, at least I was able to hold her
Whenever she needed my shoulder
I'm so glad I never let her go

[Chorus]

Her smile got me through the years
Dried away the tears
And filled me with hope
At night I'd lie awake and cry
Prayed we would get by
And for the courage to cope
Oh, oh,

Her smile got me through the day
And every night I'd pray
I could give her enough

[Chorus: x2]

No on can tell me I'm wrong
I ain't going down
