(capo 2)
N.C. 
Well life on the farm is kinda laid back
Ainít much an old country boy like me cant hack
Its early to rise, early in the sack.  Thank God Iím a country boy
Well a simple kinda life never did me no harm
Raising me a family and working on a farm
My days are all filled with an easy country charm
Thank God Iím a country boy.

Well I got me a fine wife I got me a fiddle
When the suns coming up I got cakes on the griddle
Life aint nothing but a funny funny riddle
Thank God Iím a country boy
