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

We don't make a party out of loving
But we like holding hands and pitching woo
And 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
And we still wave Ol' Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all.

--- Instrumental ---

Cowboy boots are still in style for manly footwear
Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen
And 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
And we still wave Ol' Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightning's still the biggest thrill of all.

In Muskogee Oklahoma U.S.A...
