The one on this site sucked so I think I found all that was wrong with it,
Hopefully this one is better.  Strum pattern takes a bit to get used to,
but after you get it its pretty simple

A D1) Well life's on a farm is kinda laid back,
2) When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low 3) I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels, 4) Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died,
A G E1) ain't much an old country boy like me can hack.
2) I pull out my fiddle and I rosin' up the bow. 3) I never was one of them money hungry fools. 4) and he took me by the hand and held me close to his side.
A E D1) It's early to rise, early in the sack:
2) But the kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low: 3) I'd rather have my fiddle and my farmin' tools: 4) He said: "Live a good life and play my fiddle with pride,
A E A1) Thank God I'm a country boy.
2) Thank God I'm a country boy. 3) Thank God I'm a country boy. 4) and thank God you're a country boy.
A D1) A simple kind of life never did me no harm,
2) I'd play "Sally Goodin'" all day if I could, 3) Yeah, city folk drivin in a black limou sine, 4) My daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle,
A G E1) raisin' me a family and workin' on a farm.
2) but the lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good. 3) a lotta sad people thinkin' that's mighty keen. 4) he taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle.
A E D1) My days are all filled with an easy country charm:
2) So I fiddle when I can and I work when I should: 3) Well, folks let me tell you now exactly what I mean: 4) He taught me how to love and how to give just a little:
A E A1) Thank God I'm a country boy.
2) Thank God I'm a country boy. 3) I thank God I'm a country boy. 4) Thank God you're a country boy.
E AChorus: Well I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle.
E A When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle;
A E D and life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle:
A E A Thank God I'm a country boy.
