Jeannie C. Riley – Okie From Muskogee lyrics
We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee
We don't take our trips on lsd
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
Cause we like a living right and being free

We don't make a party out of loving
Cause 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 Ol' Glory down at the courthouse
And 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
Football's still the roughest thing on campus
The kids here still respect the college dean

And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee...
White lightning's still the biggest thrill of all
In Muskogee Oklahoma usa
