Thank God I'm A Country Boy

Year: 2005 - Album: Let Them Be Little

  		     G                              C                        
Well life on the farm is kinda laid back 
      G                            D        G  
Ain't much an old country boy like me can't hack 
     G                           C  
It's early to rise, early in the sack 
      G         D       G 
Thank God I'm a country boy 
       G                                 C 
Well a simple kinda life never did me no harm 
  G                       D            G  
A raisin' me a family and workin' on a farm 
   G                                        C 
My days are all filled with an easy country charm 
      G         D       G    
Thank God I'm a country boy 
 
 
 
       D                   C   
Well I got me a fine wife, I got me a fiddle 
         D                     C 
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle 
G                                     C 
Life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle 
      G 
Thank God I'm a country boy 
 
 
When the work's all done and the sun's settlin' low 
I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow 
The kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low 
Thank God I'm a country boy 
Now I'd play Sally Goodin' all day if I could 
But the lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good 
So I fiddle when I could, work when I should 
Thank God I'm a country boy 
 
Chorus 
 
Well I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds and jewels 
I never was one of them money hungry fools 
I'd rather have my fiddle and my farmin' tools 
Thank God I'm a country boy 
 
Yeah, city folk drivin' in a black limousine 
A lotta sad people thinkin' 'That's a-mighty keen' 
Son, let me tell ya now exactly what I mean 
Thank God I'm a country boy 
 
Chorus 
 
 
Solo chords change to key of A then drop back to G for the last verse and Chorus 
 
 
Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died 
And he took me by the hand and held me close to his side 
Said, live a good life and play my fiddle with pride 
And thank God you're a country boy 
My daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle 
Taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle 
Taught me how to love and how to give just a little 
Thank God I'm a country boy 
 
Chorus 
 
Thank God I'm a country boy
