    Lyrics

    Well life on the farm is kinda 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 workin' on the farm
    My days are all filled with an easy country charm
    Thank God I'm a country boy

    Chorus: Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle
    when the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
    and life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle
    thank God I'm a country boy

    When the work's all done and the sun is settin' low
    I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow
    but the kids are asleep so I keep it kinda 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 and I work when I should
    and thank God I'm a country boy

    Chorus

    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 farmin' tools
    thank God I'm a country boy

    Yeah, city folks drivin' in a black limousine
    a lotta sad people thinkin' that's a mighty keen
    well son, let me tell you now exactly what I mean
    I Thank God I'm a country boy

    Chorus

    Well, my fiddle was my daddy's 'til the day he died
    and he took me by the hand and held me close to his side
    said, "Live a good life, 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
    he taught me how to love and how to give just a little
    and thank God I'm a country boy

    Chorus
