Lyrics

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 raising me a family and working on the farm Days are all filled with an easy country charm Thank God, I'm a country boy [CHORUS] Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle When the sun's coming up I got cakes on the griddle Life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle 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 And 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 [repeat CHORUS] Well, I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels I never was one of them money hungry fools Rather have my fiddle and my farming tools Thank God, I'm a country boy

Yeah, city folk driving in a black limousine A lotta sad people thinking that's a mighty keen Son, let me tell you now exactly what I mean I thank God, I'm a country boy [repeat CHORUS] Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died He took me by the hand and held me close to his side Said, live a good life, 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 old fiddle When the sun's coming up I got cakes on the griddle Life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle Wooo, thank God, I'm a country boy, yeah
