Thank God Im A Country Boy 2

John Denver

 GC
Well life on the farm is kinda laid back
 GFD7
Ain't much an old country boy like me can't hack
 GC
It's early to rise and early in the sack
 GD7G
Thank God I'm a country boy
 GC
A simple kind of life never did me no harm
 GFD7
Raisin' me a family and workin' on the farm
 GC
My days are all filled with an easy country charm
 GD7G
Thank God I'm a country boy

Chorus:
 DG
Well, I got me a fine wife, I got my old fiddle
 DG
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
 C
Life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle
 GDG
Thank God I'm a country boy

 GC
When the work's all done and the sun is settin' low
 GFD7
pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow
 GC
But the kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low
 GDG
Thank God I'm a country boy
 GC
I'd play "Sally Goodin" all day if I could
 GFD7
But the Lord and my family wouldn't take it very good
 GC
So I fiddle when I can and I work when I should
 GDG
Thank God I'm a country boy

Chorus

 GC
Well I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels
 GFD7
never was one of them money hungry fools
 GC
I'd rather have my fiddle and my farmin' tools
 GDG
Thank God I'm a country boy
 GC
Yeah, city folks drivin' in a black limousine
 GFD7
lotta sad people think that's mighty keen
 GC
Well folks, let me tell you exactly what I mean
 GDG
Thank God I'm a country boy

Chorus

 GC
Well my fiddle was my daddy's 'til the day he died
 GFD7
And he took me by the hand and held me close to his side
 GC
He said, "Live a good life, play my fiddle with pride
 GDG
And thank God you're a country boy"
 GC
My daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle
 GFD7
He taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle
 GC
He taught me how to love and how to give just a little
 GDG
Thank God I'm a country boy

Chorus
