Okie From Muskogee
Recorded by: Merle Haggard
Written by: Merle Haggard & Roy Burris

[1] We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee
We don't take our trips on L S. [5-7] D.
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
We like livin' right and bein' [1] free

[1] I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a [5-7] ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of [1] all

We don't make a party out of lovin'
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


Leather boots are still in style if a man needs footwear
Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen
Football's still the roughest thing on campus
And the kids here still respect the college dean

[5-7] We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
In Muskogee, Oklahoma, U.S. [1] A.
