Country DJs knows that I'm an outlaw.
They'd never come to see me in this dive.
Where bikers stare at cowboys who are laughin' at the hippies.
Who are prayin' they'll get out of here alive.

The loud mouth in the corners getting’ to me.
Talking about my earrings and my hair.
I guess he ain’t read the sign that says I've been to prison.
Someone ought to warn him, ‘fore I knock him off his chair.

‘Cause my long hair just can't cover up my redneck.
I've won every fight I've ever fought.
And I don't need some turkey telling me that I ain't country.
Sayin’ I ain’t worth a damn dog, ticket that he bought.

‘Cause I can sing all them songs about Texas,
And I still do all the sad ones that I know.
They tell me I look like Merle Haggard,
And sound a lot like David Allan Coe.

And the barmaid in the last town that we played in
Knew the words to every song I wrote.
She said Jimmy Rabbit turned her on to my last album
Just about the time the jukebox broke

Yeah Johnny Cash helped me get out of prison
Long before Rodriquez stole that goat.
I've been a Rhinestone Cowboy for so long I can't remember
And I can do you every song Hank Williams ever wrote.

And I can sing all them songs about Texas,
And I still do all the sad one's that I know.
I can't help it I like Merle Haggard,
And I sound a lot like David Allan Coe.

But the country DJ's all think I'm an outlaw,
They'd never come to see me in this dive.
Where bikers stare at cowboys who are laughin' at the hippies
Who are prayin' they'll get out of here alive.

The loud mouth in the corners getting’ to me,
Talking about my earrings and my hair.
