Country Boy Can Survive Lyrics - Hank Williams, Jr.

Review The Song (10)



The preacher man says it's the end of time and the Mississippi River she's goin' dry
The interest rate is up and the stock market's down
And you only gettin mugged if you go down town
I live back in the woods you see my woman and the kids and the dogs and me
I've got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
I can plow a field all day long I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
Ain't too many things these old boys can't do
We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
Cause we'se them ole boys raised on shotguns
We say grace and we say mamm if you ain't in to that we don't give a damn

We come from the West Virginia coal mines
And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies
And we can skin a buck we can run a trotline
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
I had a good friend in New York City he never called me by my name just hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land and his taught him to be a business man
He used to send me pictures of the broadway nights I'd send him some homemade wine
But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For forty three dollars my friend lost his life
I'd love to spit some beechnut in that dude's eyes and shoot him with my ole 45
Cause a country boy can survive country folks can survive
Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
Cause we'se them ole boys raised on shotguns
We say grace and we say mamm if you ain't in to that we don't give a damn

We're from North California and South Alabam and little towns all around this land
And we can skin a buck and run a trotline
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
A country boy can survive country folks can survive

small town | Reviewer: bubba | 10/9/09

im from a small town in GA, cochran. my parents and i run a restaurant, small, but effective. we pride ourselves by knowin everyone that comes in, and if we dont. we want o get to know them. hospitality is key in the south, great song. i think it put the south in its rightful place. on TOP

Proud to have lived it | Reviewer: mike h | 2/20/09

I grew up in South Alabama in the 70's and 80's. I remember following Hank, Waylon, Charlie Daniels, Marshal Tucker, and "The Possum" tearing it up at joints all around. They were wild and unpredictable. You can listen to country music, but it's better to live country music. I've been privileged.

P.S. Corporate America...Surrender NASCAR!

~American by birth. Country by the grace of God.

... | Reviewer: ThistLe | 7/30/07

Just wanna say something on this reviews..i'm not a country boy, also i'm not even an american.. in my city, i'm livin' with seventeen million people about 20000 km away from USA..but in my childhood i watched so much movie about country boys..in the movies i saw the small towns, where everyone knows eachothers, the people live with their traditions, with their nature..especially i remember the hot-roads and the 4 wheel cars as the song say..also in my country we re faithful about our traditions..so just go on ur way..u sould keep the way u livin' and what u like...so i like that...also that kind o' music..yes i like it..



powerfull lyrics | Reviewer: johnny G | 5/7/07

I remember sitting in my dads truck when I was 12 or so listening to this song on tape, and thinking "thats bad ass". There is something powerfull about the mood this song invokes. It makes me want to leave the city and move to the sticks <not very realistic. It inspires me as an American in some strange way. When he says "Id like to spit some beachnut in that doods eye" Its inspirational like Josey Wales squaring off against the bad guys. Great song envokes emotion
((((sorry if too wordy))))



This song is really great!!! | Reviewer: Niccole | 4/15/07

I am a city girl but i love country boys!



Great Song | Reviewer: Pearl Otis | 4/11/07

I really like this song. It appeals to me on an inner gut level, even though I am a woman and it is talking about men. I think it talks to and about a whole class of people in America, country folks. I can relate to it. We have to survive in this country, even though it has grown sophisticated, and we have to survive the way we know how, the way country folks always have. I like the song.
