"Long Haired Country Boy" as written by and Charles Edward Daniels....
People say I'm no good
And crazy as a loon
'Cause I get stoned in the morning
And get drunk in the afternoon
Kinda like my old blue tick hound
I like to lay around in the shade
And I ain't got no money
But I damn sure got it made

'Cause I ain't asking nobody for nothin'
If I cant get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin'
Just leave this long haired country boy alone

Preacher man talking on T.V.
Puttin' down the rock and roll
Wants me to send a donation
'Cause hes worried about my soul
He said Jesus walked on the water
And I know that its true
But some times I think that preacherman
Would like to do a little walking too

But I ain't asking nobody for nothin'
If I cant get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin'
Ya just leave this long haired country boy alone

A poor girl wants to marry
And a rich girl wants to flirt
A rich man goes to college
And a poor man goes to work
A drunkard wants another drink of wine
And a politician wants a vote
I don't want much of nothin' at all
But I will take another toke

But I ain't asking nobody for nothin'
If I can't get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin'
Ya just leave this long haired country boy alone

    General CommentThis is the best song ever written about countrified, dope-smoking hippies, not the priveleged hippies that occupied colleges back in the 1960's. He leans to the right, he defends his way of life, and he's too drunk or stoned to do a hard day's work. But he doesn't give a shit and he doesn't want help from anybody. Can you blame him for really being lazy then?

    General CommentGreat song. Just stay out of my business and I'll stay out of yours. Wisdom to live by.

    Song MeaningPerfect way of thinking. Personally I can identify with this song (outside of getting stoned in the morning and drunk in the afternoon). My life is my business so stay out of it. I love how he contrasts the rich and poor because for the 90% of the time part it's true.
    On a side note, I'd prefer to see the correct lyrics rather than reading it in text language. That just annoys me.
