Okie From Muskogee recorded by Merle Haggard written by Roy Burris and Merle Haggard
G We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee D7 We don't take our trips on LSD We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
G We like living right and being free We don't make a party out of loving
D7 We like holding hands and pitching woo We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy
G Like the hippies out in San Francisco do And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
D7 A place where even squares can have a ball We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
G And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear
D7 Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen Football's still the roughest thing on campus
G And the kids here still respect the college dean D7
G And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all repeat #3
