Thank God Im A Country Boy 2  John Denver

Well l[G]ife on the farm is kinda laid [C]back
Ain't [G]much an old country boy like [F]me can't [D7]hack
It's [G]early to rise and early in the [C]sack
Thank [G]God I'm a [D7]country [G]boy
A sim[G]ple kind of life never did me no [C]harm
Rai[G]sin' me a family and wor[F]kin' on the f[D7]arm
My d[G]ays are all filled with an easy country ch[C]arm
Thank [G]God I'm a [D7]country [G]boy
Well, I [D]got me a fine wife, I [G]got my old fiddle
When the [D]sun's comin' up I got [G]cakes on the griddle
Life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny r[C]iddle
Thank [G]God I'm a [D]country [G]boy

When the [G]work's all done and the sun is settin' [C]low
I [G]pull out my fiddle and I [F]rosin up the [D7]bow
But the [G]kids are asleep so I keep it kinda [C]low
Thank [G]God I'm a [D]country [G]boy
I'd [G]play "Sally Goodin" all day if I [C]could
But the [G]Lord and my family wouldn't [F]take it very [D7]good
So I [G]fiddle when I can and I work when I [C]should
Thank [G]God I'm a [D]country [G]boy

Well I [G]wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or [C]jewels
I [G]never was one of them [F]money hungry [D7]fools
I'd [G]rather have my fiddle and my farmin' [C]tools
Thank [G]God I'm a [D]country [G]boy
Yeah, [G]city folks drivin' in a black [C]limousine
A [G]lotta sad people think [F]that's mighty [D7]keen
Well [G]folks, let me tell you exactly what I [C]mean
Thank [G]God I'm a [D]country [G]boy

Well my [G]fiddle was my daddy's 'til the day he [C]died
And he [G]took me by the hand and held me [F]close to his [D7]side
He said, [G]"Live a good life, play my fiddle with [C]pride
And thank [G]God you're a [D]country [G]boy"
My [G]daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to [C]whittle
He [G]taught me how to work and play a [F]tune on the [D7]fiddle
He [G]taught me how to love and how to give just a [C]little
Thank [G]God I'm a [D]country [G]boy
