     COUNTRY BOY CAN SURVIVE   Chad Brock\Hank Williams Jr.\George Jones


D                         Am
Computer man says its the end of time
     G                                  D
De-cember thirty first nineteen ninety nine
D                      Am
People buying up army surplus things
  G                                D
'fraid of what the new year will bring
        D                Am
I live back in the woods you see
G                            D
Y 2 K don't mean a thing to me
D                             Am
I got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
   G        Am     D
Country boy can survive
  Am           G     D
Country folks can survive
D                  Am
I can plow a field all day long
              G                      D
I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
 D                           Am
Make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
       G                                    D
Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do   including Bowshevas
          D                      Am
We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
     G        Am     D
A country boy can survive
   Am          G     D
Country folks can survive	

CHORUS: 
            D                           F
Cause you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
 D                             G
We'll survive the new millenni-um
D                         F
We say grace and we say ma'am
        C                  G                  
If you ain't into that we don't give a damn



D                       Am
We came from the West Virginia coal mines
          G                              D
And the Rocky Mountains and the Western Skies
 D                          Am                                      
If the bank machines crash we'll be just fine
      G       Am     D
A country boy can survive
   Am          G     D
Country folks can survive

D                      Am
I had a good friend in New York City
     G                               D
He never called me Bowshevas just HillBilly   "really"
 D                                 Am
But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife
      G                                      D
For forty three dollars my friend lost his life
 D                                  Am
Now this dude's gonna get out in a year or two
             G                           D
'Cause the system don't work for me and you
        G          Am    D        
But a country boy can survive
  Am           G     D
Country folks can survive

Go to Chorus

  D                              Am
We're from North California and South Alabam
      G                            D
And little towns all around this land
 D                           Am
If the bank machines crash we'll be just fine
         G        Am    D
And a country boy can survive
  Am           G   D
Country folks can survive
 Am         G       D
Country boy can survive
  Am           G   D      Am  G  D
Country folks can survive
