"Okie from Muskogee" is a song recorded by American country music artist Merle Haggard, which he co-wrote with Roy Edward Burris. "Okie" is a slang name for someone from Oklahoma, and Muskogee is the 11th largest city in the state. The song was released in September 1969 as first single and title track from the album Okie from Muskogee, and was one of the most famous songs of Haggard's career.

Merle Haggard Okie From Muskogee Lyrics

We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee

We don't take no trips on LSD;

We don't burn no draft cards down on Main Street

But, We love living right, and being free

We don't make a party out of loving

But we like holding hands and pitching 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 Old Glory down at the courthouse

White lightning's still the biggest thrill of all

 

Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear

Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen;

A football's still the roughest thing on campus

And the kids here still respect the college dean

 

And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee

A place where even squares can have a ball;

We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse

White lightning's still the biggest thrill of all

And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all

(In Muskogee Oklahoma USA)
