Thank God I’m a Country Boy – Maceál van Rapalje with One-Man-Band

Live performance by Maceál from Rapalje with his One-Man-Band of this country folk song from John Denver in a theatre in the Netherlands.

“Thank God I’m a Country Boy”, also known as “Country Boy”, is a song written by John Martin Sommers and recorded by American singer/songwriter John Denver. The song was originally included on Denver’s 1974 album Back Home Again. A version recorded live on August 26, 1974 at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles was included on his 1975 album An Evening with John Denver. The live version was released as a single and went to No. 1 on both the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles and Billboard Hot 100 charts. The song topped both charts for one week each, first the country chart (on May 31), and the Hot 100 chart a week later.
