    A Country Boy Can Survive
    Hank Williams
    The preacher man says it’s the end of time
    And the Mississippi River, she’s a-goin’ dry
    The interest is up and the stock market’s 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, a rifle and a four-wheel drive
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
    I can plow a field all day long
    I can catch catfish from dusk ’til dawn (Yeah)
    We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
    Ain’t too many things these old boys can’t do
    We grow good-ole tomatoes and homemade wine
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
    Because you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
    ‘Cause we’re them old boys raised on shotguns
    We say grace, and we say ma’am
    If you ain’t into that, we don’t 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, we can run a trot line
    And a country boy 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 businessman
    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
    And I’d send him some homemade wine
    But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
    For 43 dollars, my friend lost his life
    I’d love to spit some Beech-Nut in that dude’s eyes
    And shoot him with my old .45
    ‘Cause a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
    ‘Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
    ‘Cause we’re them old boys raised on shotguns
    We say grace, and we say ma’am
    If you ain’t into that, we don’t give a damn
    We’re from North California and South Alabam’
    And little towns all around this land
    And we can skin a buck, and run a trotline
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
    A country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
