LYRIC

Country boy, ain't got no shoes
Country boy, ain't got no blues
Well, you work all day
While you're wantin' to play
In the sun and the sand,
With a face that's tan
At the end of the day,
When your work is done,
You ain't got nothin' but fun


Country boy, ain't got no ills
Country boy, don't owe no bills


Country boy, ain't got no ills
Country boy, don't owe no bills
You get a wiggly worm,
And then you watch him squirm
While you put him on a hook,
And you drop him in a brook
If everything's gonna turn out right,
You're gonna fry fish tonight


Country boy, got a lot to lose
Country boy, how I wish I was in your shoes


[Instrumental break]


Country boy, you got a shaggy dog
Country boy, up a holler log
Well, he comes in a run,
When you pick up your gun
And with a shell or two,
And your dog and you,
When you get your rabbit,
You'll skin his hide,
He's gonna be good fried


Country boy, you got a lot to lose
Country boy, how I wish I was in your shoes


[Instrumental break]


Country boy, you got work to do
Country boy, in the morning dew,
You gotta plant the seed,
You gotta cut the weeds
There's many a row,
You know you gotta hoe
When it's quittin' time,
And your work is through
There's a lot of life in you


Country boy, you lucky thing
Country boy, I wish I was you, and you were me
