 DAm7
        The preacher man says its the end of time
 GD
        And the Mississippi River shes a goin dry
 DAm7
        The interest is up and the stock markets down
 GD
        And you only get mugged if you go down town
 DAm7
        I live back in the woods you see
 GD
        My woman and the kids and the dogs and me
 DAm7
        I got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
 GAm7D
        And a country boy can survive
 Am7GD
        Country folks can survive
 DAm7
        I can plow a field all day long
 GD
        I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
 DAm7
        We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
 GD
        Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do
 Am7
        We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
 GAm7D
        And a country boy can survive
 Am7GD
        Country folks can survive
Chorus
 GF
        Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
 CG
        Cause when them ole boy raised on shotgun
 F
        We say grace and we say ma'am
C G (riff)
If you ain't into that we don't give a damn
Verse
 DAm7
        We came from the West Virginia coal mines
 GD
        And the Rocky Mountains and the Western Skies
 Am7
        And we can skin a buck we can run a trot line
 GAm7D
        And a country boy can survive
 Am7GD
        Country folks can survive
 DAm7
        I had a good friend in New York City
 GD
        He never called me by my name just HillBilly
 Am7
        My GrandPa taught me to live off the land
 GD
        And his taught him to be a business man
 Am7
        He used to send me pictures of the Broadway Night
 GD
        And I'd send him some homemade wine
 Am7
        But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife
 GD
        For forty three dollars my friend lost his life
 Am7
        I'd love to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eye
 GD
        And shoot em' with my ole 45
 Am7GD
        Cause a country boy can survive
 Am7GD
        Country folks can survive
Chorus..................
Verse
 DAm7
        Were from North California and South Alabam
 GD
        And little towns all around this land
 Am7
        And we can skin a buck and run a trot line
 GAm7D
        And a country boy can survive
 Am7GD
        Country folks can survive
 Am7GD
        Country boy can survive
 Am7GDAm7GD
        Country folks can survive..............
