Song Author Fred F. Carter , Jr. og Anna Carter Performer: Bob Luman Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the [G7]boy   
[C]Take him into town but he'll [F]turn that city [D7]down   
You [G7]can't take the country from the [C]boy  

You can take the boy from the [F]country
[C]Dress him up until he's looking [G7]smart
[C]All those fancy clothes will never [F]change him
He'll [G7]still be a country boy at [C]heart

[C]Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the [G7]boy   
[C]Take him into town but he'll [F]turn that city [D7]down   
You [G7]can't take the country from the [C]boy  

When he's old enough to make a [F]living
The [C]country boy will move into [G7]town   
He'll [C]work hard and save up all his [F]money
Just to [G7]buy a farm where he can settle [C]down

[C]Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the [G7]boy   
[C]Take him into town but he'll [F]turn that city [D7]down   
You [G7]can't take the country from the [C]boy  

When it comes to women he's a [F]lover
His [C]country grin he'll give 'em every [G7]time   
When [C]he finds a girl he wants to [F]marry
You can [G7]bet she'll be that good old fashioned [C]kind

[C]Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the [G7]boy   
[C]Take him into town but he'll [F]turn that city [D7]down   
You [G7]can't take the country from the [C]boy  

You [G7]can't take the country from the [C]boy  
You [G7]can't take the country from the [C]boy  


Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the boy
Take him into town but he'll turn that city down
You can't take the country from the boy

You can take the boy from the country
Dress him up until he's looking smart
All those fancy clothes will never change him
He'll still be a country boy at heart

Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the boy
Take him into town but he'll turn that city down
You can't take the country from the boy

When he's old enough to make a living
The country boy will move into town
He'll work hard and save up all his money
Just to buy a farm where he can settle down

Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the boy
Take him into town but he'll turn that city down
You can't take the country from the boy

When it comes to women he's a lover
His country grin he'll give 'em every time
When he finds a girl he wants to marry
You can bet she'll be that good old fashioned kind

Yeah you can take the boy from the country
But you can't take the country from the boy
Take him into town but he'll turn that city down
You can't take the country from the boy

You can't take the country from the boy
You can't take the country from the boy
