My woman and the kids and the dogs and me

 I can plow a field all day long
 GD
I can cetch catfish from dusk till dawn

Fill
 DAm7
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
 GD
Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do

And a country boy can survive
 CGD

 GF
Because you cain't starve us out and you cain't make us run
