Country Boy Can Survive -- Hank Williams Jr.
Transcribed by: Skip (Damn Skippy) otsi@ix.netcom.com

This is the way I play the intro.

D   Am7   G  D    e|----------------------|  D
                  B|----------------------|
                  G|----------------------|
                  D|--3p2p0---------------|
                  A|--------3p2p0-----0---|
                  E|--------------2h4-----|

I don't know how to write the riffs that are added during the song.
Some are hammer on and pull offs on the 4th & 5th string while strumming
the D chord.

[Verse]
        D                             Am7
        The preacher man says its the end of time
                G                        D
        And the Mississippi River shes a goin dry
        D                          Am7
        The interest is up and the stock markets down
                G                      D
        And you only get mugged if you go down town

        D                  Am7
        I live back in the woods you see
           G                          D
        My woman and the kids and the dogs and me
        D                             Am7
        I got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
              G           Am7 D
        And a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
        Country folks can survive

        D                  Am7
        I can plow a field all day long
              G                  D
        I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
        D                               Am7
        We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
              G                         D
        Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do
                                      Am7
        We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
              G           Am7 D
        And a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
        Country folks can survive       

[Chorus]
                    G                           F
        Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
              C                        G
        Cause when them ole boy raised on shotgun
                         F
        We say grace and we say ma'am
               C                    G                  (riff)
        If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

[Verse]
        D                       Am7
        We came from the West Virginia coal mines
                G                       D
        And the Rocky Mountains and the Western Skies
                                      Am7
        And we can skin a buck we can run a trot line
              G           Am7 D
        And a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
        Country folks can survive

        D                      Am7
        I had a good friend in New York City
           G                          D
        He never called me by my name just HillBilly
                                Am7
        My GrandPa taught me to live off the land
            G                      D
        And his taught him to be a business man
                                           Am7
        He used to send me pictures of the Broadway Night
            G                 D
        And I'd send him some homemade wine
                                          Am7
        But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife
            G                      D
        For forty three dollars my friend lost his life
                                          Am7
        I'd love to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eye
            G                     D
        And shoot em' with my ole 45
                Am7         G   D        
        Cause a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
        Country folks can survive

[Chorus]
                    G                           F
        Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
              C                        G
        Cause when them ole boy raised on shotgun
                         F
        We say grace and we say ma'am
               C                    G                  (riff)
        If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

[Verse]
        D                              Am7
        Were from North California and South Alabam
            G                D
        And little towns all around this land
                                   Am7
        And we can skin a buck and run a trot line
              G           Am7 D
        And a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
        Country folks can survive
        Am7         G   D
        Country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D          Am7  G  D
        Country folks can survive..............

that's good but, on the intro instead of 2h4 it's actually 3h4 on the 6th string. other than that, i rate this song 5 stars.
