Words and music by hank williams, sr.

I [g] went to the country - just [c] the other day
To see [d7] my uncle bill and sorta [g] pass the time away
I asked him how hed been - since [c] last, Id passed his way
He rubbed his [d7] chin - heres what he had [g] to say.

My wifes been sick - the [c] youngns, too
And Im [d7] durn near - down [g] with the flu
The cows gone dry - and them [c] hens wont lay
But - [d7] were still a-livin - so ever-[g] things okay.

The hogs took the cholera and theyve all done died
The bees got mad - and they left the hive
The weevils got the corn and the rain rotted the hay
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

The porch rotted down - thats more expense
The durned old mule - he tore down the fence
The mortgage is due and - I cant pay
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

The cow broke in the field and eat up the beans
The durn rabbits - they got the turnip greens
And my ma-in-law just moved in to stay
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

My lands so poor - so hard and yeller
You have to set on a sack of fetilizer to raise an umbreller
And it rains out here - nearly ever day
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

The wells gone dry and I have to tote the water
Up from the spring - about a mile and a quarter
My helper, he quit - for the lack of pay
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

The house it leaks - it needs a new top
When it rains - it wets everthing we got
The chimney fell down - just yesterday
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

The corn meals gone and the meats run out
Got nothin to kill to put in the smokehouse
The preachers comin sunday - to spend the day
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

The canned stuffs spoiled - else the jars got broke
And all we got left is one old billy goat
Were gonna have a new baby about the first of may
But - were still a-livin - so everthings okay.

My crop it rotted - in the ground
I asked for another loan but the banker turned me down
But - were still a-livin and were prayin for better days
So - after all, everthings in purty good shape.
