AARON LEWIS "Country Boy"

Tune Guitar 1/2 step down and dropped D to play like Aaron Lewis

Intro: D chord hammering with index finger

D 	  	  	          Cadd9            Cadd9/B 	   
I grew up down an old dirt road in a town you wouldn't know. 
        Cadd9                   Cadd9/B                 Cadd9 D
My pops picked the place up for 15 hundred bucks back in 1964. 
    D                                    Cadd9      Cadd9/B                     
My grandfather was a drinker back in the day he put em down. 
      Cadd9           Cadd9/B              Cadd9             D
But a war is known to change a man and the whisky's known to change a man but….
Cadd9  Cadd9/B              Cadd9  D
              no that's not me. 
         Cadd9                         Cadd9/B         Cadd9   D
I rarely drink from the bottle but I'll smoke a little weed. 
        Cadd9              Cadd9/B                   Cadd9             
I still live in the sticks where you wouldn't go in a town of 12 hundred down a 
D                     Cadd9              Cadd9/B    Cadd9  D
old dirt road cause a country boy is all I'll ever be.

D 	  	  	                    Cadd9    Cadd9/B
It's been 12 years since I sold my soul to the devil in L.A. 
        Cadd9                      Cadd9/B              Cadd9               D
He said sign your name here on the dotted line and your songs they all will play.
   D                            Cadd9     Cadd9/B 
He set up shop up Sunset he put me up in the marquee. 
            Cadd9              Cadd9/B          Cadd9   D
He said you wanna sell a million records boy better listen to me. 
        Cadd9              Cadd9/B                     Cadd9         D
He said change your style, whiten your smile you could lose a couple pounds. 
       Cadd9                           Cadd9/B               Cadd9   
If you wanna live this life you better lose that wife do you need your friends 
D                   Cadd9 Cadd9/B
around..and I said…. 
            Cadd9  D
no that's not me. 
     Cadd9                           Cadd9/B          Cadd9  D
Your biggest things in life are your friends and family. 
      Cadd9                Cadd9/B             Cadd9                     D
And I like my jeans and my old tee shirt and a couple extra pounds never really 
               Cadd9          Cadd9/B       Cadd9  D
hurt because a country boy is all I'll ever be. 

      F                   G           D                   F
Cause Hank taught me just how to stay alive. You'll never catch me out the house
           G    D
without my 9 or 45. 
        F                        G                F                         G
I got a big orange tractor and a diesel truck and my idea of heavens chasin white 
            F           G             A
tail bucks. Country boy, I know I can survive.

    D                                    Cadd9      Cadd9/B               
Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel. 
Cadd9                      Cadd9/B            Cadd9             D
One is the colors that fly high and proud the red the white the blue. 
    D                                  Cadd9         Cadd9/B             
The other ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made. 
      Cadd9          Cadd9/B               Cadd9           D
Don't tread on me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.... Because 
Cadd9  Cadd9/B        Cadd9  D 
               This is me. 
        Cadd9            Cadd9/B       Cadd9  D
Proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. 
     Cadd9                   Cadd9/B                 Cadd9           
I've said it before and I'll say it again because my family's always fought and 
        D                    Cadd9          Cadd9/B     Cadd9  D
died to save this land and a country boy is all I'll ever be

-cntrypicker | 2/16/2011
where the hell is the original one that was on here drop d tuned down half a step with a capo and all these alternate chords arent necessary jesus christ!!!!
-muscismyrelease | 4/5/2011
please help me understand your question. I tried to match the way he played it in the attached video. Please explain. What chords should there be??
-cntrypicker | 4/5/2011
I thought his voice sounded familiar. As far as chords go man, this is close enough if it isnt spot on. Thanks!
-parkayj | 10/6/2011
Hey man, this was a good job. I like it and think that it is pretty damn close!
-bucky548 | 12/21/2011
Your spot on with is man. no need for a capo and all that just drop D and a couple easy chords. Good job man!
-rebelwithin | 6/13/2012
Is there any way to transpose these chords for a beginner?
-poodydoo | 8/15/2012
only two chords need to be fixed. The Cadd9 and the D
instead of the regular Cadd9, place your middle finger on the 5th string 3rd fret, ring finger on the 2nd string third fret and pinky on 1st string 3rd fret.

D can be fixed by simply lifting your middle finger from the 1st string 2nd fret.

pretty easy fix and sounds about right to me...

With a beginner what does is meam to hammer the index finger on the D chord?
