A Country Boy Can Survive

Hank Williams Jr.

 DmAm
        The preacher man says its the end of time
 GDm
        And the Mississippi River shes a goin dry
 DmAm
        The interest is up and the stock markets down
 GDm
        And you only get mugged if you go down town

 DmAm
        I live back in the woods you see
 GDm
        My woman and the kids and the dogs and me
 DmAm
        I got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
 GADm
        And a country boy can survive
 AGDm
        Country folks can survive

 DmAm
        I can plow a field all day long
 GDm
        I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
 DmAm
        We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
 GDm
        Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do
 Am
        We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
 GADm
        And a country boy can survive
 AGD
        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
 CG
        If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

 DmAm
        We came from the West Virginia coal mines
 GDm
        And the Rocky Mountains and the Western Skies
 Am
        And we can skin a buck we can run a trot line
 GAD
        And a country boy can survive
 AGDm
        Country folks can survive
 DmAm
        I had a good friend in New York City
 GDm
        He never called me by my name just HillBilly
 Am
        My GrandPa taught me to live off the land
 GDm
        And his taught him to be a business man
 Am
        He used to send me pictures of the Broadway Night
 GDm
        And I'd send him some homemade wine
 Am
        But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife
 GDm
        For forty three dollars my friend lost his life
 Am
        I'd love to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eye
 GDm
        And shoot em' with my ole 45
 AGDm
        Cause a country boy can survive
 AGD
        Country folks can survive

Chorus..................

 DmAm
        Were from North California and South Alabam
 GDm
        And little towns all around this land
 Am
        And we can skin a buck and run a trot line
 GADm
        And a country boy can survive
 AGDm
        Country folks can survive
 AGD
        Country boy can survive
 AGDCGDm
        Country folks can survive................
