INTRO
| |A |A |D |D |


D
We don't smoke marajuana in Muskogee
                           A
We don't take our trips on LSD
A
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
                                     D
Cause we like living right and being free


D
We don't make a party out of loving
                                       A
But we like holding hands and pitching woo
A
We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy
                                      D
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do


        D
And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
                                      A
A place where even squares can have a ball
A
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
                                                  D   Bb
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all


        Eb
Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear
                                  Bb
Beads and Roman sandles won't be seen
    Bb
And football's still the roughest thing on campus
                                            Eb
And the kids here still respect the college dean


        Eb
And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
                                      Bb
A place where even squares can have a ball
Bb
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
           Bb                                     Eb
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all
          Bb                                      Eb
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all
   Bb           Eb
In Muskogee U.S.A.
