"Okie from Muskogee" as written by Merle Haggard and Roy Burris....
We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee we don't take no trips on LSD
We don't burn out 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 pitchin' woo

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
We still wave Ole Glory down at the courthouse

And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all
Leather boots are still in style for manly foot wear
Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen
Football's still the roughest thing on campus

And the kids here still respect the college dean
And I'm proud to be...
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all in Muskogee Oklahoma USA
