Thank God I'm a Country Boy  John Denver



1) [A]Well     [A]life's on a farm is kinda laid      [D]back,
2) When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low
3) I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels,
4) Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died,
1) ain't  [A]much an old country boy like    [G]me can't        [E7]hack.
2) I pull out my fiddle and I rosin' up the bow.
3) I never was one of them money hungry fools.
4) and he took me by the hand and held me close to his side.
1) It's      [A]early to rise, early in the              [D]sack:
2) But the kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low:
3) I'd rather have my fiddle and my farmin' tools:
4) He said: "Live a good life and play my fiddle with pride,
1)     Thank [A]God I'm a    [E7]country boy.[A]
2) Thank God I'm a country boy.
3) Thank God I'm a country boy.
4) and thank God you're a country boy.
1) A     [A]simple kind of life never did me no          [D]harm,
2) I'd play "Sally Goodin'" all day if I could,
3) Yeah, city folk drivin in a black limou sine,
4) My daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle,
1)         [A]raisin' me a family and          [G]workin' on a  [E7]farm.
2) but the lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good.
3) a lotta sad people thinkin' that's mighty keen.
4) he taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle.
1) My    [A]days are all filled with an easy country     [D]charm:
2) So I fiddle when I can and I work when I should:
3) Well, folks let me tell you now exactly what I mean:
4) He taught me how to love and how to give just a little:
1)     Thank [A]God I'm a    [E7]country boy.[A]
2) Thank God I'm a country boy.
3) I thank God I'm a country boy.
4) Thank God you're a country boy.
Chorus: Well I  [E7]got me a fine wife, I [A]got me old fiddle.
        When the [E7]sun's comin' up I got [A]cakes on the griddle;
        and life ain't [A]nothin' but a funny, funny [D]riddle:
        Thank [A]God I'm a [E7]country boy[A].
