Thank God I’m A Country Boy John Denver (#1 in 1975)

Well life's on a farm is kinda laid back,
When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low
I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels,
Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died,
Ain't much an old country boy like me can hack.
I pull out my fiddle and I rosin' up the bow.
I never was one of them money hungry fools.
and he took me by the hand and held me close to his side.
It's early to rise, early in the sack:
But the kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low:
I'd rather have my fiddle and my farmin' tools:
He said: "Live a good life and play my fiddle with pride,
Thank God I'm a country boy.
Thank God I'm a country boy.
Thank God I'm a country boy and thank God you're a country boy.
A simple kind of life never did me no harm,
I'd play "Sally Goodin'" all day if I could,
Yeah, city folk drivin in a black limou sine,
My daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle,
raisin' me a family and workin' on a farm.
but the lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good.
a lotta sad people thinkin' that's mighty keen.
he taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle.
