  • Well, it's hard out here for a country boy
    Chugging that cold beer, loving that hot girl
    Living that slow life in a real fast world
    Gonna be a long day but I'll get through it
    It's a hell of a job but somebody gotta do it
    It's hard out here for a country boy

    Woo-wee, yeah it's hard out here
    Turn four Talladega second time this year
    Lifting this koozie's got my arm tired
    Sweating and getting this old boy wired
    NASCAR, bikini tan lines
    Coppertone shoulders, sunshine
    It's tough for a red, white, and blue collared guy

    Well, it's hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
    Chugging that cold beer, loving that hot girl
    Living that slow life in a real fast world
    It's hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
    Riding them Goodyears, reeling them big cats
    Wearing this red neck like an old ball cap
    Gonna be a long day but I'll get through it
    It's a hell of a job but somebody gotta do it
    It's hard out here for a country boy

    Naw, sir, we ain't worried about it
    When it comes to fun we know our way around it, man
    We smoking that smoke on the back porch swing
    While the hound dog chews on a chicken wing

    It's hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
    Chugging that cold beer, loving that hot girl
    Living that slow life in a real fast world
    It's hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
    Riding them Goodyears, reeling them big cats
    Wearing this red neck like an old ball cap
    Gonna be a long day but I'll get through it
    It's a hell of a job but somebody gotta do it
    It's hard out here for a country boy

    Well, it's hard out here for a country boy Writer/s: Jaren Ray Johnston, Jeremy S. Stover, Neil D. Mason
