Circle left
*We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee
We don't take no trips on LSD

Left allemande, dosado
Left allemande, weave the ring
I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
A place where even squares can have a ball
(or swing and promenade)
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*We don't make a party out of lovin'
We like holdin' hands and pitchin' woo


*Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear
Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen

Heads (Sides) promenade half
Square thru 4, right & left thru
Veer left, couple circulate
Half tag, scoot back, scoot back

We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all
In Muskogee, Oklahoma USA

Okie From Muskogee Lyrics ID: 13

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.
