I've done some things that I hadn't oughta
Like coming home late with the preacher's daughter
I'd hit the back door seeing double
My ol' man waiting with a fistful of trouble

Sometimes you lose, sometimes you're a winner
You talk about love, I ain't no beginner
I'm a sucker for a juke joint jumpin'
I never stop chasin' the scent of the woman

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
I come up smilin' song

I've been on top and I've hit the bottom
You talk about hard times Lord, I've got 'em
Just keep on runnin' and go in full of throttle
There ain't no answer in the bottom of a bottle

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
I come up smilin' song

Come up smilin'

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
I come up smilin' song

It's just the way that I've always been
You knock me down, I'm coming back again
I sing, I've been there and I've done that
And I come up smilin' song

Oh, keep on smilin'
Oh, keep on smilin'
