punching bag lyrics – josh turner

punching bag

i feel it in the morning when i fall out of bed
i never get a break and i can’t get ahead
i’m up against the ropes, shaking in my shoes
i take it on my chin, till i’m black and blue

i’m a punching bag
i’m a punching bag
i’ve had enough of getting beat up
i’m a punching bag

i’m backed into a corner with a foreman in my face
i can’t fight my way out of this place
but i learned to be tough right out of the box
i’ve graduated from the school of hard knocks

i’m a punching bag
i’m a punching bag
i’ve had enough of getting beat up
i’m a punching bag
hit me all you want to, i’ve got pretty thick skin
don’t count me out, i just might surprise you
when i swing back again

she broke her promise and now she’s gonna leave
when she floated like a b*tterfly it stung me like a bee
she took off the gloves and took a cheap shot
she left me hanging in a pretty tough spot

i’m a punching bag
i’m a punching bag
i’ve had enough of getting beat up
i’m a punching bag
hit me all you want to, i’ve got pretty thick skin
don’t count me out, i just might surprise you
when i swing back again

i wanna set the records straight
every day life is a heavy weight
you can tear me up, there ain’t no doubt
but you ain’t never gonna knock me out

i’m a punching bag
i’m a punching bag
i’ve had enough of getting beat up
i’m a punching bag
yeah, i’ve had enough of getting beat up
i’m a punching bag
hit me all you want to, i’ve got pretty thick skin
don’t count me out, i just might surprise you
when i swing back again
