    Well my name's John Lee Pettimore
    Same as my daddy and his daddy before
    You hardly ever saw Grandaddy down here
    He only came to town about twice a year
    He'd buy a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line
    Everybody knew that he made moonshine
    Now the revenue man wanted Grandaddy bad
    He headed up the holler with everything he had
    It's before my time but I've been told
    He never came back from Copperhead Road
    Now Daddy ran the whiskey in a big block Dodge
    Bought it at an auction at the Mason's Lodge
    Johnson County Sheriff painted on the side
    Just shot a coat of primer then he looked inside
    Well him and my uncle tore that engine down
    I still remember that rumblin' sound
    Well the sheriff came around in the middle of the night
    Heard mama cryin', knew something wasn't right
    He was headed down to Knoxville with the weekly load
    You could smell the whiskey burnin' down Copperhead Road

    I volunteered for the Army on my birthday
    They draft the white trash first,'round here anyway
    I done two tours of duty in Vietnam
    And I came home with a brand new plan
    I take the seed from Colombia and Mexico
    I plant it up the holler down Copperhead Road
    Well the D.E.A.'s got a chopper in the air
    I wake up screaming like I'm back over there
    I learned a thing or two from ol' Charlie don't you know
    You better stay away from Copperhead Road

    Copperhead Road
    Copperhead Road
    Copperhead Road

    About the time that Daddy left to fight the big war
    I saw my first pistol in the general store
    In the general store, when I was thirteen
    Thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
    So l asked if I could have one someday when I grew up
    Mama dropped a dozen eggs, she really blew up
    She really blew up and I didn't understand
    Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

    The devil's right hand, the devil's right hand
    Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

    My very first pistol was a cap and ball Colt
    Shoot as fast as lightnin' but it loads a mite slow
    Loads a mite slow and soon I found out
    It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out
    So then I went and bought myself a Colt 45
    Called a peacemaker but I never knew why
    Never knew why, I didn't understand
    Cause Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

    Well I get into a card game in a company town
    Caught a miner cheating I shot the dog down
    Shot the dog down, watched the man fall
    Never touched his holster, never had a chance to draw
    The trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
    Asked me how I pleaded, not guilty I said
    Not guilty I said, you've got the wrong man
    Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

    A Country Boy Can Survive
    Hank Williams, Jr.

    The preacher man says it’s the end of time
    And the Mississippi River she’s a goin’ dry
    The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
    And you only get mugged
    If you go down town

    I live back in the woods, you see
    A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
    I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
    And 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
    We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
    Ain’t too many things these ole boys can’t do
    We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Because you can’t starve us out
    And you cant makes us run
    Cuz we're them old boys raised on shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma’am
    And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

    We came from the West Virginia coalmines
    And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I had a good friend in New York City
    He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
    My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
    And his taught him to be a businessman
    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
    And I’d send him some homemade wine

    But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
    For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
    Id love to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eyes
    And shoot him with my old 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
    Cuz we're them old boys raised on shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma’am
    And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

    We’re from North California and south Alabam
    And little towns all around this land
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
