The Fightin' Side Of Me

In the style of

Merle Haggard

Lyrics

i hear people
talkin' bad about
the way they
have to live
here in this country

harpin' on the wars
we fight
gripin' 'bout the way
things ought to be
and i don't mind them
switchin' sides
and standin' up for
things they believe in

but when they're
runnin' down
our country
man they're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me

they're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me
runnin' down
a way of life
our fightin' men have
fought and died
to keep

if you don't love it
leave it
let this song
that i'm singin'
be a warning

when you're
runnin' down
our country hoss
you're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me

i read about some
squirrelly guy who
claims that he just
don't believe in
fightin'

and i wonder just
how long
the rest of us can
count on bein' free

they love our
milk and honey
but they preach
about some other
way of livin'

and when they're
runnin' down
our country
man they're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me

they're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me
runnin' down
a way of life
our fightin' men have
fought and died
to keep

if you don't love it
leave it
let this song
that i'm singin'
be a warning

when you're
runnin' down
our country man
you're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me

you're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me
runnin' down
a way of life
our fightin' men have
fought and died
to keep

if you don't love it
leave it
let this song
that i'm singin'
be a warning

when you're
runnin' down
our country hoss
you're walkin'
on the fightin' side
of me
