A Country Boy Can Survive  Hank Williams Jr.

        [Dm]The preacher man says its the [Am]end of time
        And the [G]Mississippi River shes a [Dm]goin dry
        [Dm]The interest is up and the [Am]stock markets down
        And you [G]only get mugged if you [Dm]go down town
        [Dm]I live back in the [Am]woods you see
        My [G]woman and the kids and the [Dm]dogs and me
        [Dm]I got a shotgun a rifle and a [Am]four wheel drive
        And a [G]country boy [A]can [Dm]survive
        [A]Country folks [G]can [Dm]survive
        [Dm]I can plow a field [Am]all day long
        I can [G]catch catfish from [Dm]dusk till dawn
        [Dm]We make our own whiskey and our [Am]own smoke too
        Ain't [G]too many things these ole [Dm]boys can't do
        We grow good ole tomatoes and [Am]homemade wine
        And a [G]country boy [A]can [Dm]survive
        [A]Country folks [G]can [D]survive

        Because you [G]can't starve us out and you [F]can't make us run
        Cause [C]when them ole boy raised [G]on shotgun
        We say grace and [F]we say ma'am
        If you [C]ain't into that we do[G]n't give a damn

        [Dm]We came from the West Vi[Am]rginia coal mines
        And the [G]Rocky Mountains and the [Dm]Western Skies
        And we can skin a buck we can [Am]run a trot line
        And a [G]country boy [A]can [D]survive
        [A]Country folks [G]can [Dm]survive
        [Dm]I had a good friend in [Am]New York City
        He [G]never called me by my name [Dm]just HillBilly
        My GrandPa taught me to [Am]live off the land
        And [G]his taught him to be a [Dm]business man
        He used to send me pictures of the [Am]Broadway Night
        And [G]I'd send him some [Dm]homemade wine
        But he was killed by a man with a [Am]switch blade knife
        For [G]forty three dollars my[Dm] friend lost his life
        I'd love to spit some Beechnut in [Am]that dudes eye
        And [G]shoot em' with my ole [Dm]45
        Cause a [A]country boy [G]can [Dm]survive
        [A]Country folks [G]can [D]survive


        [Dm]Were from North California and [Am]South Alabam
        And [G]little towns all [Dm]around this land
        And we can skin a buck and [Am]run a trot line
        And a [G]country boy [A]can [Dm]survive
        [A]Country folks [G]can [Dm]survive
        [A]Country boy [G]can [D]survive
        [A]Country folks [G]can [D]survive....[C].....[G]....[Dm]...
