"Thank God I'm a Country Boy", also known as "Country Boy", is a song written by John Martin Sommers and recorded by American singer/songwriter John Denver.

The song was originally included on Denver's 1974 album Back Home Again.

A version recorded live on August 26, 1974, at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles was included on his 1975 album An Evening with John Denver.

The live version was released as a single and went to No. 1 on both the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles and Billboard Hot 100 charts.[3] The song topped both charts for one week each, first the country chart (on May 31), and the Hot 100 chart a week later. Thank God I'm a Country Boy also became the name of a variety special show hosted by Denver in 1977.

"Thank God I'm a Country Boy" was one of six songs released in 1975 that topped both the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Hot Country Singles charts. Denver's two-sided hit "I'm Sorry"/"Calypso" also received that distinction.

The German cover band Village Girls covered it under the title "Thank God I'm a Country Girl"

Village Girls Thank God I'm a Country Girl Lyrics

 

well life on the farm is kinda laid back

ain't much an old country girl like me can't hack

it's early to raise early in the sack

thank God i'm a country girl

well a simple kinda life never did me no harm

a raisin' me a family and a-workin' on the farm

my days are all filled with an easy country charm

thank God i'm a country girl

well life on the farm is kinda laid back

ain't much an old country girl like me can't hack

it's early to raise early in the sack

thank God i'm a country girl

well a simple kinda life never did me no harm

a raisin' me a family and a-workin' on the farm

my days are all filled with an easy country charm

thank God i'm a country girl

well i got me a fine man 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 girl

when the work's all done and the sun's settin' low

i pull out my fiddle and i rasin' up the bow

the kids are asleep so i keep it kinda low

thank God i'm a country girl

i'd play sally goodin' all day if i could

but the Lord and my man wouldn't think it very good

so i fiddle when i can and i work when i should

thank God i'm a country girl

well i got me a fine man 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 girl

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 girl

city folk are drivin' in a black limousine

a lotta sad people thinkin' that's a mighty keen

well son let me tell ya now exactly what i mean

thank God i'm a country girl

well i got me a fine man 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 girl

well i got me a farm i got me old fiddle

when the sun's comin' up i got cakes on the griddle

life ain't nothin' but a funny funny riddle

thank God i'm a country girl
