 John Denver Thank God I'm A Country Boy lyrics

Well, life's on a 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,

raising me a family and working on the farm.

My days are all filled with an easy country charm, 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.

And life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle, 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 kinda low, thank God I'm a country boy.

I'd play Sally Gooding 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, 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.

And life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle, thank God I'm a country boy.

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 lotta sad people thinking that's-a mighty keen.

Son, let me tell you now exactly what I mean, 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.

And 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.

He 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.

And life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle, thank God I'm a country boy.
