A Countryboy Can Survive – Hank Williams Jr.

The preacher man says its the end of time
and the Mississippi River she’s a going dry.
The interest is up and the stock markets down
and you only get mugged if you go downtown.
I live back in the woods you see,
my woman,and the kids and the dogs and me.
I got a shotgun and a rifle and a four wheel drive
and a countryboy can survive. Country folks can survive.

I can plow a field all day long,
I can catch catfish from dusk til dawn.
Make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
aint to many things these boys can’t do.
We grow good old tomatoes and homemade wine
and countryboy can survive, country folk can survive.

Because you can’t stomp us out and you can’t make us run,
cause we’re them ole boys raised on shotguns.
We say grace and we say mam
amd if you aint into that we don’t give a damn.
We came from the West Virginia coal mine’s
and the Rocky Mountains and the Western skies
and we can skin a buck, we can run a trout line
and a countryboy can survive, country folks 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 business man
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway Nights
and i would 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 love to spit some beechnut in that dudes eyes
and shoot him with my ole forty-five
cause a countryboy can survive, country folks can survive.

‘Cause you can’t stomp us out and you can’t make us run,
and we’re them ole boys raised on shotgun.
We say grace, we say mam,
if you aint into that we don’t give a damn.
We’re from North California and South Alabam’
and little towns all around this land.
We can skin a buck, and run a trout line
and a countryboy can survive,
country folks can survive,
countryboy can survive,
country folks can survive.
