Fightin side of me Merle Haggard
I hear [D]people talking bad about the way they have to live here in this [A7]country.
Harpin' on the wars we fight gripin' 'bout the way things ought to [D]be.
I don't mind them switchin' sides and standin' up for things they be[A7]leive in,
When they're runnin' down our country man,
They're walkin' on The Fightin' Fide Of [D]Me.
[A7]They're [D]walkin' on The Fightin' Side Of [A7]Me.
[A]Runnin' down a way of life our fightin' men have [G]fought and died to [D]keep,
If you don't love it, leave it,
Let this song that I'm singin' [D7]be a [G]warnin',
When you're [A7]runnin' down our country (hoss - 1st // man - 2d)
You're walkin' on The Fightin' Side Of [D]Me.
I read about some squirley guy
Who claims that he just don't beleive 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',
When they're runnin' down our country man
They're walkin' on The Fightin' Side Of Me.
