THANK GOD I'M A COUNTRY BOY (Lyrics/Music : John Martin Summers) John Denver - 1975 Well, life on the farm is kind of laid back Ain't much an old country boy like me can't hack It's early to rise, early in the sack Thank God, I'm A Country Boy Well a simple kind of life never did me no harm raisin' me a family and working on a farm My days are all filled with an easy country charm Thank God I'm a country boy When the work's all done and the sun's setting low I pull out my fiddle and I rosin' up the bow The kids are asleep so I keep it kind of low Thank God I'm a country boy I'd play "Sally Goodin'" all day if I could But the Lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good So I fiddle when I can, work when I should Thank God, I'm a country boy Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle When the sun's coming up I got cakes on the griddle Life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle Thank God I'm A country boy Well I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels I never was one of them money hungry fools I'd rather have my fiddle and my farming tools Thank God I'm a country boy Yeah, city folk driving in a black limousine A lot of sad people thinking that's mighty keen Son, let me tell you now exactly what I mean I thank God I'm a country boy Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me an old fiddle When the sun's coming up I got cakes on the griddle Life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle Thank God I'm a country boy Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died And he took me by the hand and held me close to his side He said...'Live a good life and play my fiddle with pride And thank God you're a country boy "My daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle He taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle Taught me how to love and how to give just a little Thank God I'm a country boy Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle When the sun's coming up I got cakes on the griddle Life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle Thank God I'm a country boy
