Although 'Take It Like A Man' is a slightly less country-oriented tune from Conway Twitty, in comparison it is still just as heartfelt as the rest of his repertoire.

The song, off his 1985 album Don't Call Him A Cowboy, features sparse, basic production and stripped-down vocals, allowing the listener to delve into the purity of Conway's tone.

Being the last track on a ballad-heavy Conway record, he switched it up with 'Take It Like A Man', opting to make an ode to a machismo cowboy narrative. The story is about a man struggling with trying to live up to the tough guy persona his father had raised him to uphold. The man struggles with these feelings after a woman has left him and all he really wants to do is cry and beg for her, whilst trying to remember what his dad taught him. 

LYRICS BELOW

Daddy told me a man must be strong
And hold what he feels inside
Women want heroes with nerves made of steel
Sittin' tall on the white horse they ride.

So, I won't cry when you say goodbye,
I'll just let you go
I'll stick to my guns,
Like father like son.

I'll take it like a man
And watch you walk away
I'll take it like a man
You'll never know I feel the blow
I should get down on my knees
But I was raised to take a stand
Hide my tears and take it like a man.

Daddy told me don't ever show pain
'Cause a real man will never give in
But the lessons he taught me just get in the way
With the threads of our love wearing thin.

The family tradition
Taught me to be proud
But what good is pride
If it kills me inside to.

Take it like a man
And watch you walk away
I'll take it like a man
You'll never know I feel the blow
I should get down on my knees
But I was raised to take a stand
Hide my tears and take it like a man.

I'd get down on my knees
But I was raised to take a stand
Hide my tears and take it like a man
