Country Boy (3) (John R. Cash) Country boy, ain't got no shoes Country boy, ain't got no blues Well, you work all day while you're wantin' to play In the sun and the sand, with a face that's tan But at the end of the day, when your work is done You ain't got nothin' but fun. Country boy, ain't got no ills Country boy, don't owe no bills You get a wiggly worm and then you watch him squirm While you put him on a hook and you drop him in a brook And of everything's gonna turn out right You're gonna fry fish tonight. Country boy, you're lucky free Country boy, I wish I was you, and you were me. Country boy, got work to do Country boy, in the morning dew You gotta cut the weeds, you gotta plant the seed There's many a row you know you gotta hoe But when it's quittin' time, and your work is through There's a lot of life in you. Country boy, got a shaggy dog Country boy, up a holler log Well, he comes in a run, when you pick up your gun And with a shell or two, and your dog and you When you get your rabbit, you'll skin his hide He's gonna be good fried. Country boy, you got lots to lose Country boy, how I wish I was in your shoes. Copyright John R. Cash GG oct97
