country state of mind  Hank Williams



That [D] hot ol' summer sun. Make you [G] beg for your next [D] breath,
So you best be on the creek bank a laid in the [A] shade.
[D] Chewin' on a hickory twig, pass that [G] bottle I'll have me a [D] swig.
I ain't got a lot but I [A] think I got it [D] made.
Chorus
I'm just [G] laid up here in a country state of [D] mind.

Catchin' these fish like they're goin' out of style and drinkin' this

homemade [A] wine.  Hey, if the [D] sun don't come up tomorrow, [G]

Well people I have had a good [D] time, I'm just laid up here in at [A] country
state of [D] mind.
I bet the old man's in the kitchen, he's got my kind of music on his radio.
drinkin' his beer and dialin' up the requestin' line. Well mamma
ole aunt Joan, probably in the dining room tryin' to use the phone. Me, I'm
thinkin' about that girl and later tonight.

Chorus

you know the [E] red necks and the preppies are in their [A] discos and honky-

[E] tonks, somewhere between raising hell and amazing [B7] grace.  Lord, I
[E] know just how they feel you gotta get [A] out and kick up your [E] heels,
and ain't it great to be [B7] livin' in the USA.
Chorus

I'm just [A] laid up here in a country state of [E] mind.

Catchin' these fish like they're goin' out of style and drinkin' this

homemade [B7] wine.  Hey, if the [E] sun don't shine tomorrow, [A]

well people I have had a good [E] time, I'm just laid up here in at [B7] country
state of [E] mind.
