Now I grew up down an old dirt road
        C                G*
In a town you wouldnt know
            C                     G*
My pop's picked a place up for fifteen hundred bucks
       C   D 
back in 1964

My grandfather was a drinker
             C             G* 
back in the day he put em down
        C              G*
but a war is known to change a man
         C                  D           C        G*          
And the whiskeys known to change a man but...

            C            D
Thats not me
         C                              G*                C     D      
I rarely drink from the bottle but Ill smoke a little weed
        C                            G*
I still live in the sticks where you wouldnt go
     C                              D
In a town of twelve hundred off an old dirt road
      C           G*                C      D
And a country boy is all Ill ever be....

Now its been twelve years since I sold my soul
        C         G*
To the devil in L.A.
        C                           G*
He said sign your name here on the dotted line
         C                   D
And your songs they all will play

He set up shop on Sunset
          C              G*
He put me up at the  Marquis
             C                    G*
He said you want to sell a million records boy
C                    D
You better listen to me

         C                 G*
He said change your style, whiten your smile 
          C             D                  
you could lose a couple pounds
And if you want to live this life
You better lose that wife
      C                 D
Do ya need your friends around?

            C   G*               C     D
I said..          No thats not me
           C                              G*               C        D
Cause the biggest things in life are your friends and family
      C                    G*
And I like my jeans and my old t-shirts
     C                         D
and couple extra pounds never really hurt
      C           G*                C      D
And a country boy is all Ill ever be....

       F                   G            D
Cause Hank taught me just how to stay alive
              F                                 G      D
Youll never catch me out the house without my .9 or .45
             F                    G
I got a big orange tracker and a diesel truck
My idea of heaven is chasing white tail bucks
          F             G            A
And as a country boy I know I can survive

Now two flags fly above my land
            C            G*
That really sum up how I feel
           C               G*
One is the colors that fly high and proud
    C                   D
The red, the white, the blue

The other ones got a rattlesnake 
        C               G*
with a simple statement made
       C               G*
"Don't Tread On Me" is what is says 
         C               D
and I'll take that to my grave

          C   G*          C   D
because.....    this is me
             C               G*               C      D
Im proud to be American and strong in my beliefs
          C                 G*
And Ive said it before but Ill say it again
        C                            D
Cause I never needed a government to hold my hand
          C                 G*
And Ive said it before but Ill say it again
          C                                 D
Cause my familys always fought and died to save this land
      C           G*                C      D
And a country boy is all I'll ever be....

I don't see ONE problem with this tab. It's about damn time someone got the lyrics right too. Great work man. Now, if only I can tab the second guitar, and combine it with your chords, and we'd have a complete tab.

5 Stars nonetheless!

Very good tab EXCEPT .. B chord is not a B ... It's a G...try it ... It sounds better to me .. And of course half step down too...
