Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Join hands and circle to the left go walkin' round
Walk around your corner, see saw the one you found
And now the men star right go once around tonight
Left allemande that corner, weave the ring
Well I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
You swing the girl around and promenade
We still wave Ole Glory down at the court house
White Lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well the 4 little ladies chain 3/4 round the ring
Side couples promenade halfway
Those heads square thru 4 hands around will do
Split 2 around just one and make a line, all 8 box the gnat
And square thru 4 hands, go walkin' round and then
You swing the corner girl and promenade
*We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street
Cause we like living right and being free


ALTERNATE LYRICS

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

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.
