"Fightin' Side of Me" as written by and Merle Haggard....
I hear people talkin' bad,
About the way we have to live here in this country,
Harpin' on the wars we fight,
And gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be.
And I don't mind 'em switchin' sides,
And standin' up for things they believe in.
When they're runnin' down my country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

[Chorus]
Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it,
Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'.
If you're runnin' down my country, man,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

I read about some squirrelly guy,
Who claims, he just don't believe in fightin'.
And I wonder just how long,
The rest of us can count on bein' free.
They love our milk an' honey,
But they preach about some other way of livin'.
When they're runnin' down my country, hoss,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

[Chorus: x2]
