HANK WILLIAMS, JR.


A Country Boy Can Survive Lyrics

The preacher man says it's the end of time
And the Mississippi River she's a goin' dry

The interest is up and the stock market's down
And you only get mugged if you go downtown

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 til dawn

We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
Ain't too many things these ole 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's them ole boys raised on shotguns
We say grace and we say ma'am
If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

We come from West Virginia coal mines
And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies

And we can skin a buck
we can run a trot line
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
And 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

Cause you can't starve us out
and you can't make us run
Cause we's them ole boys raised on shotguns
We say grace and we say ma'am
If you ain't into 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 trout line
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive
Country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Country folks can survive better. More access to food and more area for growing. Raised on shotguns says it all. I was raised in the country and moved to the city. Still got my guns and a Midwest mind. I love this song.

I have a 14 country boys working for me. Some are great, but most aren't too bright.... I doubt they could survive better than me (have guns, a survivalist cache of food, medicine, liquor...)

Ahh...stagnant civilization. Not a bad song. Though I gotta wonder why he knocks city folk, people get killed in country all the time. They kill themselves, wives & kids, for no dang reason...

actually a trotline is a long line with 16inch lines attached with hooks. You bait them with anywhere from leaches to chunks of fish to catch catfish

Yeah, I figured it was trotline too. Troutline makes no sense... A trotline is same as a setline or a trawl if set from a moving boat. Great song either way... Words to live by.

Hey Eugene, Colton said it WAS trot line. Not trout. Learn to read before you give someone crap, loser...

No, Colton, it is 'trot line' and has nothing to do with trout. It lies along the bottom, and only fish that swallow the bait without running are caught -- catfish or carp. Look it up in a dictionary.
