Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee
We don't take our trips on LSD

Allemande left and weave
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
We like livin' right, and bein' free


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway
Sides (Heads) right & left thru
Square thru, dosado
Eight chain 4
*We don't wear our hair all long and shaggy
Swing and promenade
**Like the hippies out in San Francisco do


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Football's still the roughest thing on campus
**And the kids here still respect the college dean


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a ball

Allemande left and weave
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all


TAG

Swing her, in Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA

Okie From Muskogee
 
 

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;
We like livin' right, and bein' free.

I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all

We don't make a party out of lovin';
We like holdin' hands and pitchin' 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 Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightnin'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,
And the kids here still respect the college dean.

We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
In Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA.

Lyrics by Merle Haggard and Roy E. Burris.
Recorded by Merle Haggard.
