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