Fighting Side Of Me
Merle Haggard

Intro: "B"

E                                                                     B7
I hear people talking bad about the way we have to live here in this country.
                                                                   E
Harpin' on the wars we fight gripin' 'bout the way things ought to be.
                                                                          B7
I don't mind them switchin' sides and standin' up for things they beleive in,
                                                                                  E
When they're runnin' down my country man, they're walkin' on the fightin' side Of Me.

Chorus

 E                                  B7
Yea walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
                                                                     E
Runnin' down a way of life our fightin' men have fought and died to keep,
                                                                     A
If you don't love it, leave it, let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin',
             B7                                                                 E
When you're runnin' down my country man, you're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Instrumental: "B" 

E                                                                         B7
I read about some squirley guy, who claims that he just don't beleive in fightin',
                                                                E
And I wonder just how long   the rest of us can count on bein' free.
                                                                      B7
They love our milk and honey but, they preach about some other way of livin',
                                                                                    E
When they're runnin' down my country hoss', they're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Chorus 

 E                                  B7
Yea walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
                                                                     E
Runnin' down a way of life our fightin' men have fought and died to keep,
                                                                A
If you don't love it, leave it, let this song I'm singin' be a warnin',
             B7                                                                 E
When you're runnin' down my country man, you're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Repeat Chorus - Advance  Step to "F"

 F                                  C7
Yea walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
                                                                     F
Runnin' down a way of life our fightin' men have fought and died to keep,
                                                                Bb
If you don't love it, leave it, let this song I'm singin' be a warnin',
             C7                                                                 F
When you're runnin' down my country man, you're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
