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
well i got me a fine wife i got me a fiddle
when the sun’s comin’ up i got cakes on the griddle
life ain’t nothin’ but a funy funny riddle
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
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
well i got me a fine wife i got me a fiddle
when the sun’s comin’ up i got cakes on the griddle
life ain’t nothin’ but a funy funny riddle
thank god i’m a country boy
well i wouldn’t trade my life for diamonds and jewels
i never was one of them money hungry fools
iid 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 mighty keen
son, let me tell ya now exactly what i mean
thank god i’m a country boy
well i got me a fine wife i got me a fiddle
when the sun’s comin’ up i got cakes on the griddle
life ain’t nothin’ but a funy funny riddle
thank god i’m a country boy
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
well i got me a fine wife i got me a fiddle
when the sun’s comin’ up i got cakes on the griddle
life ain’t nothin’ but a funy funny riddle
thank god i’m a country boy
thank god i’m a country boy
