     Ab                              Fm
As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain 
         G                       Cm
I take a look at my wife and realize she's very plain 
     Ab                        Fm
But that's just perfect for an Amish like me 
           G                       Cm
You know I shun fancy things like electricity 
   Ab                       Fm
At 4:30 in the morning I'm milkin' cows 
G                               Cm
Jebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows fool

And I've been milkin' and plowin' so long that 
G                           Cm
Even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone 
     Ab                    Fm
I'm a man of the land, I'm into discipline 
      G                      Cm
Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin 
         Ab                          Fm
But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine 
     G                                    Cm
Then tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699

  I've churned butter once or twice living in an Amish paradise 
Ab                  Fm                G           Cm
  It's hard work and sacrifice living in an Amish paradise 
Ab                  Fm                   G             Cm

   Ab                        Fm
A local boy kicked me in the butt last week 
        G                   Cm
I just smiled at him and I turned the other cheek 
   Ab                          Fm
I really don't care, in fact I wish him well 
                G                              Cm
'Cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in Hell 
      Ab                                 Fm
But I ain't never punched a tourist even if he deserved it

An Amish with a 'tude? You know that's unheard of 
   Ab                       Fm
I never wear buttons but I got a cool hat 
       G                      Cm
And my homies agree I really look good in black fool 
Ab                              Fm
If you come to visit, you'll be bored to tears 
           G                           Cm
We haven't even paid the phone bill in 300 years 
       Ab                      Fm
But we ain't really quaint, so please don't point and stare 
      G                    Cm
We're just technologically impaired

There's no phone, no lights, no motorcar not a single luxury 
     Ab        Fm             G               Cm
Like Robinson Caruso it's as primitive as can be

Hitchin' up the buggy, churnin' lots of butter 
G                         Cm
Raised a barn on Monday, soon I'll raise an 'utter 
Ab                             Fm
Think you're really righteous? Think you're pure in heart? 
        G                          Cm

       G                           Cm
On my knees day and night scorin' points for the afterlife 
Ab                     Fm
So don't be vain and don't be whiny 
         G                                Cm
Or else, my brother, I might have to get medieval on your heinie
