Hank Williams Jr.
“America Will Survive”

Verse 1
D                          Am7
People think it’s nearly the end of time
G                         D
Cause we’re all together now we draw the line
D                        Am7
Our flag is up, the stock markets down
G                             D
But now we’re united from the country to the town
D                               Am7
We live back in the woods you see
G                        D
Big city problems never bothered me
D                          Am7
But the world has changed and so have I
G          Am7  D 
And America can survive
Am7      G     D
America will survive

Verse 2
We can plow our fields all day long
We can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
Yeah we have toughed it out a time or two
Ain’t too many things these boys and girls can’t do
We grow good ol’ tomatoes we got home town pride
America can survive
America is going to survive

G              Am7                  D
Can’t stomp us out you cant make a run
Am7                   G                          D
With them boys and girls with their freedom and fun
G         Am7         D
We say grace, we say m’am 
Am7                 G                     D
If they don’t like that, we don’t give a damn

Verse 3
Come from the West Virginia coal mines
Rocky mountains and the big city skylines
We can hit back, and we’re going to be fine
This country can survive
America can survive

Verse 4
I had a good friend in New York City
He never called me by name he called me hillbilly
My grandpa taught me to live off the land
His taught him to be a good businessman
Used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
I sent him some of granddaddy’s Williams homemade musky dime wine
He was lost like so many in the terrible strife
We’re all asking God now why o’ why?
A tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye
That’s an old slogan we’re going to revive
Cause America can survive 
America will survive

Hey you can’t scare us out
You can’t make ‘em run
With them boys and girls got freedom and fun
We say grace we say m’am 
If they don’t like that we give less than a damn

Verse 5
We’re from north California and south Alabam
And all they’ve done is unite this whole land
No more Yankees and Rebels this time 
But one united people that stand behind

America can survive
America will survive
America can survive
America will survive
