Title: Thank God I'm A Country Boy
Artist: John Denver
Tuning: Standard

The one on this site sucked so I think I found all that was wrong with it,
Hopefully this one is better.  Strum pattern takes a bit to get used to,
but after you get it its pretty simple

   A                                               D
1) Well     life's on a farm is kinda laid         back,
2) When the work's all done and the sun's settin'  low
3) I        wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels,
4) Well, my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he  died,

          A                               G             E
1) ain't  much an old country boy like    me can        hack.
2) I      pull out my fiddle and I        rosin' up the bow.
3) I      never was one of them money     hungry        fools.
4) and he took me by the hand and held me close to his  side.

             A                            E             D
1) It's      early to rise,               early in the  sack:
2) But the   kids are asleep so I         keep it kinda low:
3) I'd       rather have my fiddle and my farmin'       tools:
4) He said: "Live a good life and play my fiddle with   pride,

    A                     E        A
1)     Thank God I'm a    country boy.
2)     Thank God I'm a    country boy.
3)     Thank God I'm a    country boy.
4) and thank God you're a country boy.

         A                                            D
1) A     simple kind of life never did me no          harm,
2) I'd   play "Sally Goodin'" all day if I            could,
3) Yeah, city folk drivin in a black limou            sine,
4) My    daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle, 

           A                                G             E
1)         raisin' me a family and          workin' on a  farm.
2) but the lord and my wife wouldn't        take it very  good.
3) a       lotta sad people thinkin'        that's mighty keen.
4) he      taught me how to work and play a tune on the   fiddle.

         A                                E              D
1) My    days are all filled with an      easy country   charm:
2) So I  fiddle when I can and I          work when I    should:
3) Well, folks let me tell you now        exactly what I mean:
4) He    taught me how to love and how to give just a    little:

    A                     E        A
1)     Thank God I'm a    country boy.
2)     Thank God I'm a    country boy.
3)  I  thank God I'm a    country boy.
4)     Thank God you're a country boy.

                E                      A
Chorus: Well I  got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle.
                 E                      A
        When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle;
            A                        E            D
        and life ain't nothin' but a funny, funny riddle:
        A               E         A
        Thank God I'm a country boy.
