Okie From Muskogee

In the style of

Merle Haggard

Lyrics

we don't
smoke marijuana
in muskogee
we don't take our
trips on lsd

we don't burn our
draft cards
down on main street
'cause we like
livin' right and
bein' free

we don't make a
party out of lovin'
but we like
holdin' hands and
pitchin' woo

we don't let
our hair grow
long and shaggy
like the hippies out
in san francisco do

and i'm proud to be an
okie from muskogee
a place where
even squares
can have a ball

we still wave
old glory down at
the courthouse
and white lightnin's
still the biggest
thrill of all

leather boots are
still in style
for manly footwear
beads and
roman sandals
won't be seen

and football's still
the roughest thing
on campus
and the kids here
still respect
the college dean

and i'm proud to be an
okie from muskogee
a place where
even squares
can have a ball

we still wave
old glory down at
the courthouse
and white lightnin's
still the biggest
thrill of all

and white lightnin's
still the biggest
thrill of all
