Country Boy Can Survive [Y2K Version]
by Hank Williams, Jr.



the preacher man says its the end of time
and the mississippi river shes goin dry

the intrest is up and the stock markets down
and you only get mugged if you go downtown

i live back in the woods you see the woman
the kids and the dog and me

i got a shotgun a rifle and a fourwheel drive
and a country boy can survive country folk can survive


i can plow a field all day long i can catch catfish from dusk till dawn

we make our own wiskey and our own smoke to
aint to many things these old boys cant do

we grow good old tomatoes and and homeade wine
and a country boy can survive
country folks can survive

because you cant stomp us out and you cant make us run
cause when them old boys raised on shotgun

we say grace and we say mam if you aint into that we dont give a damn

we came from the west virginia coal mines and the rocky mountains
and the western skies

and we can skin a buck and run a trout line and a country boy can survive
country folk can 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 buissiness man

he used to send me pictures of the broadway nights
and id send him some homeade wine

but he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife
for forty three dollars my friend lost his life

id liv eto spit some beech nut in that dudes eyes and
shoot him with my old forty five
cause a country boy can survive
country folks can survive

cause you cant stomp us out and you cant make em run
cause when them old boys raised on shotgun

we say grace and we say mam if you aint into that we
dont give a damn

were from north carolina and south alabam and little
towns all across this land

and we can skin a buck and we can run atrout line
and a country boy can survive
county folk can survive country boy can survive
counry folk can survive
