                                                            OKIE FROM MUSKOGEE
                                                                   Merle Haggard

We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee
And we don't take our trips on LSD
And we don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
But we like living right and being free

We don't make a party out of loving
But we like holding hands and pitching woo
We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do

CHORUS:
And I'm proud to be a Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Ol' 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
Football's still the roughest thing on campus
And the kids here still respect the college dean

Repeat Chorus:
