Ray LaMontagne – Strong Enough Lyrics

Strong Enough By Ray LaMontagne

I was raised up by my mamma alone
Worked herself into the graveTrying to make us a homeShe never left South Carolina

(No na)

Our old man didn’t stick around to see me grown
He was long gone ‘fore the coffee got cold Wouldn’t even know where to find him

WoahWasn’t strong enough
WoahHe wasn’t strong enough

Alright, alright, alright, alright

I left home with nothing but a dream I had
All I own I could roll up in a paper bag
Getting out of South CarolinaAlright

I’ve been told there’s gold in this land
All I know is what I hold in my own two hands
If it’s out there I’m gonna find it

Oh, am I strong enough?
Oh, am I strong enough?

Everywhere you turn there’s another man slammin’ doors
Looking at you like he wouldn’t even let you sweep his floors

I was raised up by my mamma on her own
Worked herself into the graveTrying to make us a homeNever left South Carolina

I left home with nothing but a dream I had
All I own I could hold in a paper bag
Getting out of South Carolina

Oh, am I strong enough?Oh, tell me am I strong enough?

Oh, am I strong enough?Oh, tell me am I strong enough?

Am I strong enough? (x4)

Oh, tell meAm I strong enough?
Oh, got to tell me
Am I strong enough?
Oh, tell meAm I strong enough?
