[Intro]
E  A  4x


[Verse]
         E
Well the boys 'round here don't listen to The Beatles
    A
Run ole Bocephus through a jukebox needle
     E
At a honky-tonk, where their boots stomp
    A
All night, what? (That's right)
         E
Yea, and what they call work, digging in the dirt
      A
Gotta get it in the ground 'fore the rain come down
       E
To get paid, to get the girl
        A
In your 4 wheel drive (A country boy can survive)


[Chorus]
        E
Yea the boys 'round here
              A
Drinking that ice cold beer
              E
Talkin' 'bout girls, talkin' 'bout trucks
             A
Runnin' them red dirt roads out, kicking up dust
    E
The boys 'round here
             A
Sending up a prayer to the man upstairs
    E
Backwoods legit, don't take no shit
A
Chew tobacco, chew tobacco, chew tobacco, spit


[Interlude]
E         A  E  A
  Aw heck


[Verse]
         E                 \
Well the boys 'round here, they're keeping it country
        (A)
Ain't a damn one know how to do the dougie
 E
(You don't do the dougie?) No, not in Kentucky
          A
But these girls 'round here yep, they still love me
         E
Yea, the girls 'round here, they all deserve a whistle
A
Shakin' that sugar, sweet as Dixie crystal
     E
They like that y'all and southern drawl
    A
And just can't help it cause they just keep fallin'


[Chorus]
        E
Yea the boys 'round here
              A
Drinking that ice cold beer
              E
Talkin' 'bout girls, talkin' 'bout trucks
             A
Runnin' them red dirt roads out, kicking up dust
    E
The boys 'round here
             A
Sending up a prayer to the man upstairs
    E
Backwoods legit, don't take no shit
A
Chew tobacco, chew tobacco, chew tobacco, spit


[Interlude]
E          A
(Ooh let's ride)
E          A
(Ooh let's ride)


[Bridge]
E                        A
Hey now girl, hop inside me and you
                                E            A
gonna take a little ride to the river, let's ride,
              E
That's right, lay a blanket on the ground
A
kissing and the crickets
                 E
is the only sound
              A
We out of town

Have you ever got down
       E                          A
with a red red red red red red redneck?

And do you wanna get down
       E                          A
with a red red red red red red redneck?

Girl you gotta get down


[Chorus]
         E
With the boys 'round here
              A
Drinking that ice cold beer
              E
Talkin' 'bout girls, talkin' 'bout trucks
             A
Runnin' them red dirt roads out, kicking up dust
    E
The boys 'round here
             A
Sending up a prayer to the man upstairs
    E
Backwoods legit, don't take no shit
A
Chew tobacco, chew tobacco, chew tobacco, spit


[Chorus]
         E
With the boys 'round here
              A
Drinking that ice cold beer
              E
Talkin' 'bout girls, talkin' 'bout trucks
             A
Runnin' them red dirt roads out, kicking up dust
    E
The boys 'round here
             A
Sending up a prayer to the man upstairs
    E
Backwoods legit, don't take no shit
A
Chew tobacco, chew tobacco, chew tobacco, spit
