OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I hear people talkin' bad
About the way we have to live here in this country

Left allemande the corner and then you dosado
Allemande left and weave the ring
An' I don't mind 'em switchin' sides
An' standin' up for things they believe in

Swing and promenade
When they're runnin' down my country, man
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I hear people talkin' bad
About the way we have to live here in this country
Harpin' on the wars we fight
An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be
An' I don't mind 'em switchin' sides
An' standin' up for things they believe in
When they're runnin' down my country, man
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me
Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me


*I read about some squirrely guy
Who claims, he just don't believe in fightin'
An' I wonder just how long
The rest of us can count on bein' free
If you don't love it, leave it: Let this song I'm singin' be a warnin'
They love our milk an' honey, but they preach about some other way of livin'


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru, right & left thru
Swing thru, boys run
Half tag, scoot back
2 ladies chain, chain her back and promenade
When they're runnin' down my country, man
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me


#4) Pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
#7) And to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God


TAG

Ladies and Gentlemen may we never forget
We are in fact, one nation
Under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!!

The Fightin' Side Of Me
 
 

I hear people talkin' bad,
About the way they have to live here in this country,
Harpin' on the wars we fight,
An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be.
I don't mind 'em switchin' sides,
An' standin' up for things that they believe in.
When they're runnin' down our country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'.
When you're runnin' down our country, hoss,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

I read about some squirrely guy,
Who claims that he just don't believe in fightin'.
An' I wonder just how long,
The rest of us can count on bein' free.
They love our milk an' honey,
But they preach about some other way of livin'.
When they're runnin' down our country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'.
When you're runnin' down my country, man,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down a way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep.
If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'.
When you're runnin' down my country, hoss,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Lyrics by Merle Haggard.
Recorded by Merle Haggard.
