"Okie from Muskogee" as written by Merle Haggard and Roy Burris....
We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee and we don't take our trips on LSD
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
Cause we like living right and being free
We don't make a party out of loving but we like holding hands and pitching woo
And we don't let our hair grow long and shaggy
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do
And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a ball
And we still wave Ol' Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all

Cowboy boots are still in style for manly footwear
Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen
And football's still the roughest thing on campus
And the kids here still respect the college dean
And I'm proud to be an Okie
In Muskogee Oklahoma US
