       D                                                               A7
I HEAR PEOPLE TALKING BAD ABOUT THE WAY THEY HAVE TO LIVE HERE IN THIS COUNTRY.
                                                                   D
HARPIN' ON THE WARS WE FIGHT GRIPIN' 'BOUT THE WAY THINGS OUGHT TO BE.
                                                                    A7
I DON'T MIND THEM SWITCHIN' SIDES AND STANDIN' UP FOR THINGS THEY BELEIVE IN,
                                                                                   D
WHEN THEY'RE RUNNIN' DOWN OUR COUNTRY MAN, THEY'RE WALKIN' ON THE FIGHTIN' SIDE OF ME.


A7      D                               A7
THEY'RE WALKIN' ON THE FIGHTIN' SIDE OF ME.
A                                                G                  D
RUNNIN' DOWN A WAY OF LIFE OUR FIGHTIN' MEN HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED TO KEEP,
                                                               D7   G
IF YOU DON'T LOVE IT, LEAVE IT, LET THIS SONG THAT I'M SINGIN' BE A WARNIN',
            A7                                                                     D
WHEN YOU'RE RUNNIN' DOWN OUR COUNTRY HOSS,  YOU'RE WALKIN' ON THE FIGHTIN' SIDE OF ME.


I READ ABOUT SOME SQUIRLEY GUY
WHO CLAIMS THAT HE JUST DON'T BELEIVE IN FIGHTIN',
AND I WONDER JUST HOW LONG THE REST OF US CAN COUNT ON BEIN' FREE.
THEY LOVE OUR MILK AND HONEY BUT THEY PREACH ABOUT SOME OTHER WAY OF LIVIN',
WHEN THEY'RE RUNNIN' DOWN OUR COUNTRY MAN
THEY'RE WALKIN' ON THE FIGHTIN' SIDE OF ME.


A7      D                               A7
THEY'RE WALKIN' ON THE FIGHTIN' SIDE OF ME.
A                                                G                  D
RUNNIN' DOWN A WAY OF LIFE OUR FIGHTIN' MEN HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED TO KEEP,
                                                               D7   G
IF YOU DON'T LOVE IT, LEAVE IT, LET THIS SONG THAT I'M SINGIN' BE A WARNIN',
            A7                                                                     D
WHEN YOU'RE RUNNIN' DOWN OUR COUNTRY MAN,  YOU'RE WALKIN' ON THE FIGHTIN' SIDE OF ME.

Merle Haggard is such an incredible song writer. This song is more relevant now than it ever was. God bless the writer, the transcriber, and everybody who plays this work of American art. - Hamilton70

You have this all in the same key, but the last time the chorus is played to end the song, it sure sounds to me like the chorus changes.
