The Lyrics

Isn't it funny how you can get an updated version by just exchanging some words and their places? Thanks to Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson for some updating ideas.
We don't shoot marijuana in Muskogee
we smoke it as we trip on SUV
we have never heard about the draft cards
'Cause we like living right and being free.

We make lots of loving in Muskogee
we have never heard of pitching woo
We ain't scared of hippies, queers or commies -
we get drunk as God wants us to do

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

Leathernecks are still in style for manly career;
Football with just sandals won't be seen.
Long hair's still the roughest thing on campus,
And the kids here still respect ol' Jimmy Dean.

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