Tell a Country Boy  Rodney Atkins

(D) x 4 measures
Now [D]he ain't much for talkin', but he means [Em]every word he says
And that [G]color on his arms and neck ain't from no tanning [D]bed
[D]Leaves no doubt 'bout where he stands on a [Em]Chevy or the Lord
Yeah, you can [G]always tell a country [D]boy, yeah | [D]---
Now [D]his idea of heaven is home sweet [Em]home east Tennessee
But for a [G]girl like you he would pull up roots
And move [G]down the [F#]road a [Em]piece[D]
He'll [D]always take his own sweet time, if [Em]you give him a choice
Yeah, you can [G]always tell a country boy[D]
Yeah, [G]you can always [D]tell him but [A]you can't tell him [D]much
'Cause [G]all he's ever [D]gonna be is [A]who he always was
A [Bm]cross between his [A]old man and his [G]momma's pride and joy
[F#]You can [Em]always tell a [G]country boy [D]| [D]---
He'll go [D]off and take a long walk when he [Em]needs some time to think
Might [G]even let you drive his truck when he's [G]had too [F#]much [Em]to [D]drink
'Bout as [D]true blue as Old Glory waitin' [Em]out there on the porch
Yeah, you can [G]always tell a country boy[D]
Yeah, [G]you can always [D]tell him, but [A]you can't tell him [D]much
Some- [G]times his gears'll [D]turn so slow, you [A]swear they're gonna rust
[F#]You can [Em]always tell a [G]country boy[D]
You can [C]drag him from the country every [Bm]now and then
But [Em]you can't drag 'em forty acres [A]out of him
Yeah, [G]you can always [D]tell him, but [A]you can't tell him [D]much
He's [G]on a fence about a [F#]lot of things, but on [A]you his mind's made up
'Cause he [Bm]swears there's nothin' [A]sweeter than the [G]sweet sound of your voice
[F#]You can [Em]always tell a [A]country boy[Bm]
What- [A]ever's on your [G]heart
[F#]Now come [E]on and tell this [A]country [D]boy
