Lyrics

The preacher man says it's the end of time and the Mississippi River she's a goin' dry The interest is up and the stock market's down And you only get mugged if you go down town I live back in the woods you see just my woman and the kids and the dogs and me I've got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive And a country boy can survive country folks will survive I can plow a field all day long I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too Ain't too many things these old boys can't do We grow good tomatoes and homemade wine And a country boy can survive country folks will survive Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run Cause we're them ole boys raised on shotguns We say grace and we say mamm if you ain't into that we don't give a damn We come from West Virginia coal mines And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies And we can skin a buck we can run a trot line And a country boy can survive country folks will survive I had a good friend in New York City he never called me by my name just hillbilly My grandpa taught me how to live off the land and his taught him to be a business man He sent me pictures of the broadway nights I'd send him some homemade wine But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife For forty three dollars my friend lost his life I'd loke to spit some beechnut in that dude's eyes and shoot him with my old 45 Cause a country boy can survive country folks will survive Because you can't starve us out...

We're North Carolina and South Alabam and little towns all around this land And we can skin a buck and run a trot line And a country boy can survive country folks will survive A country boy can survive country folks will survive
