The preacher man says it's the end of time

And you only get mugged if you go downtown...
I live back in the woods, you see,

And a country boy can survive

I could catch catfish from dusk till dawn...
Make our own whiskey and our own smoke, too,

And a country boy can survive

'Cause we're them old boys raised on shotguns...
If you ain't into that, we don't give a damn...
We came from the West Virginia coal mines

And a country boy can survive

He never called me by my name, just hillbilly...
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land,

And I'd send him some homemade wine...
But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife,

As I shoot him with my old forty-five
Country folks can survive...
Because you can't stomp us out and you can't make us run
We say grace, and we say ma'am,

And little towns all around this land...
And we can skin a buck, we can run a trot line,
Country folks can survive
Country folks can survive...
