D   Am7   G  D    |----------------------|  D






        [D]The preacher man says its the [Am7]end of time
        And the [G]Mississippi River shes a [D]goin dry
        [D]The interest is up and the [Am7]stock markets down
        And you [G]only get mugged if you [D]go down town
        [D]I live back in the [Am7]woods you see
        My [G]woman and the kids and the [D]dogs and me
        [D]I got a shotgun a rifle and a [Am7]four wheel drive
        And a [G]country boy [Am7]can [D]survive
        [Am7]Country folks [G]can [D]survive
        [D]I can plow a field [Am7]all day long
        I can [G]catch catfish from [D]dusk till dawn
        [D]We make our own whiskey and our [Am7]own smoke too
        Ain't [G]too many things these ole [D]boys can't do
        We grow good ole tomatoes and [Am7]homemade wine
        And a [G]country boy [Am7]can [D]survive
        [Am7]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
C G (riff)
If you ain't into that we don't give a damn
        [D]We came from the West Vi[Am7]rginia coal mines
        And the [G]Rocky Mountains and the [D]Western Skies
        And we can skin a buck we can [Am7]run a trot line
        And a [G]country boy [Am7]can [D]survive
        [Am7]Country folks [G]can [D]survive
        [D]I had a good friend in [Am7]New York City
        He [G]never called me by my name [D]just HillBilly
        My GrandPa taught me to [Am7]live off the land
        And [G]his taught him to be a [D]business man
        He used to send me pictures of the [Am7]Broadway Night
        And [G]I'd send him some [D]homemade wine
        But he was killed by a man with a [Am7]switch blade knife
        For [G]forty three dollars my [D]friend lost his life
        I'd love to spit some Beechnut in [Am7]that dudes eye
        And [G]shoot em' with my ole [D]45
        Cause a [Am7]country boy [G]can [D]survive
        [Am7]Country folks [G]can [D]survive
        [D]Were from North California and [Am7]South Alabam
        And [G]little towns all [D]around this land
        And we can skin a buck and [Am7]run a trot line
        And a [G]country boy [Am7]can [D]survive
        [Am7]Country folks [G]can [D]survive
        [Am7]Country boy [G]can [D]survive
        [Am7]Country folks [G]can [D]survive....[Am7].....[G]...[D]..
