Thank God Im A Country Boy Lyrics

Artist: John Denver

John Denver
- words and music by John Martin Summers

Well, life on the farm is kinda laid back
Ain't much an old country boy like me can't hack
It's early to rise, early in the sack
Thank God, I'm A Country Boy

Well a simple kinda life never did me no harm
A raisin' me a family and workin' on a farm
My days are all filled with an easy country charm
Thank God I'm a country boy

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' 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

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 can, work when I should
Thank God, I'm a country boy

Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
Life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle
Thank God I'm A country boy

Well I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or 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
I thank God I'm a country boy

Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
Life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle
Thank God I'm a country boy

Well, my fiddle was my daddy's til the day he died
And he took me by the hand and held me close to his side
He 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
He 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

Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
Life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle
Thank God I'm a country boy

Hey, fellas don't let livin in a city hold ya back... I used to live in the country all across the the east and south west... well now i live in a city that about 50,000 but i dont let it hold me back, i just get my boots and pants and go for a walk in the lesser populated area... im more lucky than some of you, i got a mountian that i can climb just 2 miles from me so i spend time up there... those of you city slickers that say im from NY and i wish i was a country boy... if ya ever were tryin to be one i would give ya a good lickin to teach you a few things for trying to be a country boy... (id rather be in the middle of nowhere with my dogs a bow an arrows and a creek not far) like home population -12- my family was 1/3 of the town
by Country Girl ;3 on 1/18/2012 12:26pm
I used to live in the country but moved! D:

by Kingaroy Princess on 1/19/2012 2:36am
Uhmm... Here in Australia we follow this to a tee and you know.... If ppl don't like it then they can just go back to their big cities and enjoy the smoke and fog. Out here in the country we got clear skies and fresh air.
