People say I'm no good - I'm crazy as a loon
'cause I get stoned in the morning; I get drunk in the afternoon
Kinda like my old blue-tick hound - I like to lay around in the shade
And I ain't got no money, but I damn shore got it made, 'cause...

I ain't askin' nobody for nuthin' if I can't get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin' you just leave this long-haired country boy alone

Preacher man talkin' on TV puttin' down the rock and roll
Wants me to send a donation 'cause he's worried about my soul
He said, "Jesus walked on the water," and I know that it's true
But, sometimes I think that preacher man 'd like to do a little walkin' too, but...

I ain't askin' nobody for nuthin' if I can't get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin' you just leave this long-haired country boy alone

A poor girl wants to marry and a rich girl wants to flirt
A rich man goes to college and a poor man goes to work
A drunkard wants another drink of wine and a politician wants the vote
I don't want much of nuthin' at all, but I will take another toke, but...

I ain't askin' nobody for nuthin' if I can't get it on my own
If you don't like the way I'm livin' you just leave this long-haired country boy alone

    From the original 1975 version, the meaning is a freedom that we knew during that time. My first and only love, Keith, sang "Long Haired Country Boy" on the school bus. He had beautiful long hair, and was an original bad boy rebel with a good and kind heart. He was "who he was" and made no apologies. I loved him with all of my being, and still do. This song encompassed the essence of Keith and everytime I hear it, or think of it, he is with me. Once in a generation a song comes along, and for us, this one was it. Thank you Charlie Daniels, he loved your song, and so do I.
