I don't know how to write the riffs that are added during the song.

Some are hammer on and pull offs on the 4th & 5th string while strumming

the D chord.

Verse

D Am7

The preacher man says its the end of time

G D

And the Mississippi River shes a goin dry

D Am7

The interest is up and the stock markets down

G D

And you only get mugged if you go down town

D Am7

I live back in the woods you see

G D

My woman and the kids and the dogs and me

D Am7

I got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive

G Am7 D

And a country boy can survive

Am7 G D

Country folks can survive

D Am7

I can plow a field all day long

G D

I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn

D Am7

We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too

G D

Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do

Am7

We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine

G Am7 D

And a country boy can survive

Am7 G D

Country folks can survive

Chorus

G F

Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run

C G

Cause when them ole boy raised on shotgun

F

We say grace and we say ma'am

C G (riff)

If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

Verse

D Am7

We came from the West Virginia coal mines

G D

And the Rocky Mountains and the Western Skies

Am7

And we can skin a buck we can run a trot line

G Am7 D

And a country boy can survive

Am7 G D

Country folks can survive

D Am7

I had a good friend in New York City

G D

He never called me by my name just HillBilly

Am7

My GrandPa taught me to live off the land

G D

And his taught him to be a business man

Am7

He used to send me pictures of the Broadway Night

G D

And I'd send him some homemade wine

Am7

But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife

G D

For forty three dollars my friend lost his life

Am7

I'd love to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eye

G D

And shoot em' with my ole 45

Am7 G D

Cause a country boy can survive

Am7 G D

Country folks can survive

Chorus..................

Verse

And we can skin a buck and run a trot line

And a country boy can survive

Am7 G D

Country folks can survive

Am7 G D

Country boy can survive

Am7 G D Am7 G D

Country folks can survive..............
