Well life on the farm is kinda laid back
It's early to rise, early in the sack

A raisin' me a family and workin' on a farm
Thank God I'm a country boy
[Chorus]
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
Thank God I'm a country boy
When the work's all done and the sun's settlin' low
The kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low

But the Lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good
Thank God I'm a country boy
[Chorus]
Well I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds and jewels
I'd rather have my fiddle and my farmin' tools

A lotta sad people thinkin' that's mighty keen
Thank God I'm a country boy
[Chorus]
Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died
Said, "Live a good life and play the fiddle with pride

Taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle
Thank God I'm a country boy
[Chorus]
