      A                            D
Well, life on a farm is kinda laid back
      A                            G        D
Ain't much an old country boy like me can't hack
     A               E           D
It's early to rise, early in the sack
      A         E           A
Thank God I'm a country boy
 
[Verse 2]
  A                                   D
A simple kind of life never did me no harm
A                       G            D
Raisin' me a family and workin' on a farm
   A             F#m           E            D
My days are all filled with an easy country charm
      A         E           A
Thank God I'm a country boy
 
 
[Chorus]
        E                     A
Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle
         E                     A
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
    A          F#m           E             D
And life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle
      A         E          A
Thank God I'm a country boy
 
 
[Verse 3]
         A                                      D
When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low
  A                         G             D
I pull out my fiddle and I rosin' up the bow
        A         F#m        E             D
But the kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low
      A         E           A
Thank God I'm a country boy
 
[Verse 4]
A                                    D
I'd play "Sally Goodin" all day if I could
        A                         G            D
But the lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good
     A             F#m        E           D
So I fiddle when I can and I work when I should
      A         E          A
Thank God I'm a country boy
 
 
[Chorus]
        E                     A
Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle
         E                     A
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
    A           F#m          E7            D
And life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle
      A         E       A
Thank God I'm a country boy

Well, I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels
  A                     G            D
I never was one of them money hungry fools
    A              F#m           E       D
I'd rather have my fiddle and my farming tools

        A                   G             D
A lotta sad people thinkin' that's mighty keen

[Verse 7]
         A                                     D
Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died
       A                              G             D
And he took me by the hand and held me close to his side

My daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle
   A                                G           D
He taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle
   A                F#m             E7          D
He taught me how to love and how to give just a little
      A         E           A
Thank God I'm a country boy

Thank God I'm a country boy    Yeehaw!
