Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Longhaired Redneck  David Allan Coe

[C]Country deejays [D]knows that I'm an [G]outlaw
They'd never come to see me in this [C]dive
Where bikers stare at cowboys who are [G]laughing [F#/D]at the [Em]hippies
Who are [A]praying they'll get out of here [D]alive
The [C]loudmouth in the [D]corner's gettin' [G]to me
Talkin' 'bout my earrings and my [C]hair
I guess he ain't read the signs that [G]say I've [F#/D]been to [Em]prison
[A]Someone ought to warn him 'fore I [D]knock him off his chair
'Cause my [C]long hair just can't [D]cover up my [G]redneck
I've won every fight I've ever [C]fought

And I don't need some turkey
Tellin' [G]me that [F#/D]I ain't [Em]country
[A]Sayin' I ain't worth the damned ol' [D]ticket that he bought
'Cause I can [G]sing all them songs about [C]Texas
[D]And I still do all the sad ones that I [G]know
They tell me I look like Merle [C]Haggard
And [A]sound a lot like David Allan [D]Coe

Second Verse:
And the barmaid in the last town that we played in
Knew the words to every song I wrote
She said Jimmy Rabbit turned her on to my last album
Just about the time the jukebox broke

Yeah, Johnny Cash helped me get out of prison
Long before Rodriguez stole that goat
I've been the rhinestone cowboy for so long I can't remember
And I can do you every song Hank Williams ever wrote

And I can sing all them songs about Texas
And I still do all the sad ones that I know
I can't help it, I look like Merle Haggard
I sound a lot like David Allan Coe

Third Verse (outro):
But the country DJ's all think I'm an outlaw
And they'd never come to see me in this dive
Where bikers stare at cowboys, who are laughing at the hippies,
Who are prayin' they'll get out of here alive

The loudmouth in the corner's gettin' to me
Talkin' 'bout my earrings and my hair...
