Country boy
Ain't got no shoes
Country boy
Ain't got no blues

Well you work all day while you're waitin' to play
In the sun and the sand, with a face that's tan
At the end of the day, when your work is done
You ain't got nothin' but fun

Country boy
Ain't got no wills
Country boy
You 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
If everything's gonna turn out right
You're gonna fry fish tonight

Country boy
You got a lot to lose
Country boy
How I wish I was in your shoes

Country boy
You got a shaggy dog
Country boy
Up a hollow 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 a lot to lose
Country boy
How I wish I was in your shoes

Country boy
You got work to do
Country boy
In the morning dew

You gotta plant the seed, you gotta cut the weeds
There's many a row you know you gotta hoe
When it's quittin' time, and your work is through
There's a lot of life in you

Country boy
You're lucky free
Country boy
I wish I was you and you was me
