A Country Boy Can Survive
Written and recorded by Hank Williams Jr.

G Dm
The preacher man says its the end of time
C G
And the Mississippi River she’s a going dry
Dm
The interest is up and the stock markets down
C G
And you only get mugged if you go down town

Dm
I live back in the woods you see
C G
My woman and the kids and the dogs and me
Dm
I got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
C Dm G
And a country boy can survive
Dm C G
Country folks can survive

Dm
I can plow a field all day long
C G
I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
Dm
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
C G
Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do
Dm
We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
C Dm G
And a country boy can survive
Dm C G
Country folks can survive

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

Dm
We came from the West Virginia coal mines
C G
And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies
Dm
And we can skin a buck we can run a trot line
C Dm G
And a country boy can survive
Dm C G
Country folks can survive

Dm
I had a good friend in New York City
C G
He never called me by my name just Hillbilly
Dm
My GrandPa taught me to live off the land
C G
And his taught him to be a business man

Dm
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway Night
C G
And I'd send him some homemade wine
Dm
But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife
C G
For forty three dollars my friend lost his life

Dm
I'd love to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eye
C G
And shoot em' with my ole 45
Dm C G
Cause a country boy can survive
Dm C G
Country folks can survive

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

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