"Country Boy" as written by and Antoine/bartholomew Domino....
when I was born as I recall the preacher didn't hold out any hope at all he looked at me all pink and skin thought he'd better dip me in the bath again I scuffed my shins on bigger things people throwin' rocks at the angel's wings but through it all I stood tall even when my back was up against the wall the devil's daughter keep a calling out my name I so sincerely want to cross the road and play the game raise your hands, jump for joy let's hear it for the country boy raise your hands, jump for joy let's hear it for the country boy so I grow'd up became a man took my daddy's teachings all across the land the journey's long but I must be strong and try to tell the difference 'tween right and wrong the devil's daughter keep a calling out my name I've been to heaven! now I'm never gonna see things the same raise your hands, jump for joy let's hear it for the country boy raise your hands, jump for joy let's hear it for the country boy
