Computer man says, its the end of time, December 31st, 1999
People buyin up on the surplus things
Afraid of what the New Year will bring

I live back in the woods you see
Y2K dont mean a thing to me
Ive got a shotgun, a rifle and a 4-wheel drive

Country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I can plow a field all day long
I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn

We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
Aint too many things these old boys cant do
We grow good old tomatoes and our homemade wine

Country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

'Cause ya cant starve us out and ya cant make us run
Well survive the new millennium
We say grace and we say maam
If ya aint into that we dont give a damn

We came from the West Virginia coalmines
And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies
If the bank machines crash well be just fine

'Cause a country boy can survive
Country boy can survive

I had a good friend in New York City
Never called me 'Bocephus' called me 'Hillbilly'

Well he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
Now this dudes gonna get out in a year or two
'Cause the system dont work for me and you

But a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

'Cause ya cant starve us out and ya cant make us run
Well survive the new millennium
We say grace and we say maam
If ya aint into that we dont give a damn

Were from North Carolina and south Alabam
And little towns all around this land
If the bank machines crash well be just fine
And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive
Country boy can survive
Country folks can survive
Any year, any time
