If Nobody Believed in You
by Joe Nichols



I watched him take the two strike call
He hadn't tried to swing at all
I guess he had all he could take
He walked away for goodness sake
His father's voice was loud and mean
You won't amount to anything

That little boy quit tryin'
He just walked away
There were teardrops on his face
Tell me how would you feel
You'd probably give up too
If nobody believed in you

That old man said one more try
I know I'm not too old to drive
I promised son I'll do my best
This time I'm gonna pass the test
Give me the keys dad and get in
His father never drove again

That old man quit tryin'
He just turned away
And there were tear drops on his face
Tell me how you'd feel
You'd probably give up too
If nobody believed in you

We'd take his name out of schools
The lawyers say it breaks the rules
The Pledge of Allegiance can't be read
And under God should not be said
I wonder how much he will take
I just pray it's not too late

What if God quit tryin'
He just turned away
There were tear drops on his face
Tell me how would you feel
You'd probably give up too
If nobody believed in you

Tell me how would you feel
You'd probably give up too
If nobody believed in you
