     G                              C                       
Well life on the farm is kinda laid back
      G                            D        G 
Ainít much an old country boy like me canít hack
     G                           C 
Itís early to rise, early in the sack
      G         D       G
Thank God Iím a country boy
       G                                 C
Well a simple kinda life never did me no harm
  G                       D            G 
A raisiní me a family and workiní on a farm
   G                                        C
My days are all filled with an easy country charm
      G         D       G   
Thank God Iím a country boy



       D                   C  
Well I got me a fine wife, I got me a fiddle
         D                     C
When the sunís cominí up I got cakes on the griddle
G                                     C
Life ainít nothiní but a funny, funny riddle
      G
Thank God Iím a country boy


When the workís all done and the sunís settliní low
I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow
The kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low
Thank God Iím a country boy
Now Iíd play Sally Goodiní all day if I could
But the lord and my wife wouldnít take it very good
So I fiddle when I could, work when I should
Thank God Iím a country boy

Chorus

Well I wouldnít trade my life for diamonds and jewels
I never was one of them money hungry fools
Iíd rather have my fiddle and my farminí tools
Thank God Iím a country boy

Yeah, city folk driviní in a black limousine
A lotta sad people thinkiní ďThatís a-mighty keenĒ
Son, let me tell ya now exactly what I mean
Thank God Iím 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 daddyís 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 youíre 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 Iím a country boy

Chorus

Thank God Iím a country boy
