Okie From Muskogee  Merle Haggard

OKIE FROM MUSKOGEE (M. Haggard)
performed by Merle Haggard (1969)
INTRO
| |A |A |D |D |
[D]We don't smoke marajuana in Muskogee
We don't take our trips on [A]LSD
[A]We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
Cause we like living right and being [D]free
[D]We don't make a party out of loving
But we like holding hands and pitching [A]woo
[A]We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy
Like the hippies out in San Francisco [D]do
And I'm [D]proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a [A]ball
[A]We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of [D]all[Bb]
Leather [Eb]boots are still in style for manly footwear
Beads and Roman sandles won't be s[Bb]een
And [Bb]football's still the roughest thing on campus
And the kids here still respect the college [Eb]dean
And I'm [Eb]proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a [Bb]ball
[Bb]We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white l[Bb]ightning's still the biggest thrill of [Eb]all
And white [Bb]lightning's still the biggest thrill of [Eb]all
In [Bb]Muskogee U.S.[Eb]A.
