country boy

Johnny Cash

  Country  boy, ain't got no  shoes
Country  boy, ain't got no  blues
  Well, you work all day while you're wantin' to play
In the sun and the sand, with a face that's tan
But at the end of the day, when your work is done
You  ain't got nothin' but  fun.

Country  boy, ain't got no  ills
Country  boy, don't owe no  bills
  You get a wiggly worm and then you watch him squirm
While you put him on a hook and you drop him in a brook
And of everything's gonna turn out right
You're  gonna fry fish to- night.

  Country  boy, you're lucky  free
Country  boy, I wish I was  you, and you were  me.

Country boy, got work to do
Country boy, in the morning dew
You gotta cut the weeds, you gotta plant the seed
There's many a row you know you gotta hoe
But when it's quittin' time, and your work is through
There's a lot of life in you.

Country boy, got a shaggy dog
Country boy, up a holler log
Well, he comes in a run, when you pick up your gun
And with a shell or two, and your dog and you
When you get your rabbit, you'll skin his hide
He's gonna be good fried.

Country boy, you got lots to lose
Country boy, how I wish I was in your shoes.
