Country boy, ain't got no shoes
Well, you work all day while you're waiting to play
at the end of the day, when your work is done

Country boy, don't owe no bills
While you put him on a hook and you drop him in a brook

Country boy, how I wish I was in your shoes
Country boy, you got a shaggy dog
Well, he comes in a run, when you pick up your gun
When you get your rabbit, you'll skin his hide

Country boy, how I wish I was in your shoes
Country boy, you got work to do
You gotta plant the seed, you gotta cut the weeds
When it's quitting time, and your work is through

Country boy, I wish I was you, and you was me
