He left for work and he never came back now Mary has to face the fact
That it's up to her to start a new life with two kids and just one job
It's gonna' take all the strength she's got
Well it's a hard row but she knows somehow she'll survive
Making ends meet holding her own
Not afraid of a hard days work to give her family a home
Ain't nothing gonna break her stride there's too much love and pride
Standing on her own two feet making ends meet

Bobby just a regular Joe his daddy's farm is all he knows
With calloused hands he works the fields each day
The banker says the loans come due and Bobby knows there's a lot to lose
Well it ain't fair and it's a lot to bare but you won't here him complain
Making ends meet

When hard times come and test the faith of folks like you and I
God bless the ones who stand up tall and don't give up the fight
Making ends meet

Standing on their own two feet making ends meet
