This is the way I play the intro.

D   Am7   G  D    |----------------------|  D
                  |----------------------|
                  |----------------------|
                  |--3p2p0---------------|
                  |--------3p2p0-----0---|
                  |--------------2h4-----|

I don't know how to write the riffs that are added during the song.
Some are hammer on and pull offs on the 4th & 5th string while strumming
the D chord.

Verse 
        D                             Am7
	The preacher man says its the end of time
                G                        D
	And the Mississippi River shes a goin dry
        D                          Am7
	The interest is up and the stock markets down
                G                      D
	And you only get mugged if you go down town

        D                  Am7
	I live back in the woods you see
           G                          D
	My woman and the kids and the dogs and me
        D                             Am7
	I got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
              G           Am7 D
	And a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
	Country folks can survive

        D                  Am7
	I can plow a field all day long
              G                  D
	I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
        D                               Am7
	We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
              G                         D
	Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do
                                      Am7
	We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
              G           Am7 D
	And a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
	Country folks can survive	

Chorus 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/w/williams_hank_jr/country_boy_can_survive_crd.html ]
                    G                           F
	Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
              C                        G
	Cause when them ole boy raised on shotgun
                         F
	We say grace and we say ma'am
               C                    G                  (riff)
	If you ain't into that we don't give a damn

Verse
        D                       Am7
	We came from the West Virginia coal mines
                G                       D
	And the Rocky Mountains and the Western Skies
                                      Am7
	And we can skin a buck we can run a trot line
              G           Am7 D
	And a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
	Country folks can survive

        D                      Am7
	I had a good friend in New York City
           G                          D
	He never called me by my name just HillBilly
                                Am7
	My GrandPa taught me to live off the land
            G                      D
	And his taught him to be a business man
                                           Am7
	He used to send me pictures of the Broadway Night
            G                 D
	And I'd send him some homemade wine
                                          Am7
	But he was killed by a man with a switch blade knife
            G                      D
	For forty three dollars my friend lost his life
                                          Am7
	I'd love to spit some Beechnut in that dudes eye
            G                     D
	And shoot em' with my ole 45
                Am7         G   D        
	Cause a country boy can survive
        Am7           G   D
	Country folks can survive
