Hank Williams Jr.
America Will Survive (Almeria version)

This is the version on the new CD, The Almeria Club.

Drop D tuning

D                           C(add9)
People think we're nearing the end of time,
             G/D                 D
But we've had enough and we've drawn the line.
    D               C(add9)
Our flag is up, since our people went down
    G/D                       D
But now we're united from the country to the town.

D                   C(add9)
We live back in the woods you see,
G/D                     D           Fill*1
Big city problems never bothered me.
        D                      C(add9)
But the world has changed, and so have I,
    G/D            D
And America can survive.
 C(add9)  G/D     D     Fill*2
America   will survive.


       D               C(add9)
We can plow our fields all day long,
       G/D                D 
We can catch our fish from dusk 'til dawn.
      D                      C(add9)
Yea we have toughed it out a time or two,
       G/D                        D
These are dark days but we're gonna pull through.
        D                         C(add9)
We grow good ole tomatoes, we got hometown pride,
    G/D            D
And America can survive.
 C(add9)  G/D      D     Fill*1
America is gonna survive.


        G
Oh, you can't scare us out, you can't make us run,

Women, boys and girls with freedom and fun.
              F                C
We say grace, we say ma'am, if you don't like that,
G                    Fill*2
We don't give a damn.
D                        C(add9)
We came from the West Virginia coal mines,
        G/D                     D                 Fill*1
And the Rocky Mountains and the big city skylines.
    D                         C(add9)
hey we can hit back and we're gonna be fine,
       G/D                 D
'Cause this ole country can survive.
 C(add9)  G/D    D      Fill*2
America   can survive.

 
  D                    C(add9)
I had a good friend in New York city, 
   G/D                                   D         Fill*3
He never called me by my name, called me hillbilly.
   D                        C(add9)
My grandpa taught me how to live of the land,
G/D                    D                 Fill*1
His taught him to be a street smart man.
      D                         C(add9)
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway lights,
       G/D                                 D
And I'd send him some that homemade scufflin' wine
       D                        C(add9)
He was lost like so many in the terrible strife,
               G/D            D
And we're all asking God now, why oh why?
              D               C(add9)
I read a tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye,
G/D                        D
That's an old slogan we're gonna revive,
        C(add9)  G/D    D
'Cause America   can survive,
 C(add9)  G/D     D 
America   will survive.


             G                      F
Cause, you can't scare us out, you can't make 'em run,
C                                G
What we got here is freedom and fun.
              F                C
We say grace, we say ma'am, if they don't like that,
        G                 Fill*2
We give less than a damn.
           D                    C(add9)
We're from North California and South Alabam',
    G/D                            D 
And all they've done is unite the whole land.
D                        C(add9)
There's no more Yankees and Rebels this time,
    G/D                   D
But one united people that stand behind,
 C(add9)  G/D    D
America   can survive.
 C(add9)  G/D     D 
America   will survive. 
 C(add9)       D
America can survive.
 C(add9)  G/D     D    C(add9)   G/D   D
America   will survive.
