A Country Boy Can Survive (y2k Verison) Lyrics

by Chad Brock

Computer man says it's the end of time
December 31st, 1999
People buying up army surplus things
Afraid of what the new year will bring

I live back in the woods, you see
Y2K don't mean a thing to me
I got a shotgun, a rifle and a 4-wheel drive
A country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I can plow a field all day long
I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
Make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
Ain't too many things these 'ol boys can't do (including Bocephus)
We grow good 'ol tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

'Cause you can't starve us out
And you can't make us run
We'll survive the new millennium
We say grace and we say ma'am
If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

We came from the West Virginia coal mines
And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies
If the bank machines crash, we'll be just fine
'Cause a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I had a good friend in New York City
Never called me by my name, just Hillbilly
But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For 43 dollars my friend lost his life

I'd like to spit some beech nuts in that dude's eye
And shoot him with my ol' 45
Cause a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

'Cause you can't starve us out
And you can't make us run
We'll survive the new millennium
We say grace and we say ma'am
If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

We're from North Carolina and South Alabam
And little towns all around this land
If the bank machines crash, we'll be just fine
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive
A country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Any year, any time
