TOP FIVE SONGS THAT PROVE MERLE HAGGARD HATED HIPPIES!

In honor of the late, great Merle Haggard, today we are counting down the Top Five Songs That Prove He Hated Hippies!

#5) Working Man Blues

Most Hippie Hating Lyrics: 

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain't never been on welfare, that's one place I won't be
Cause I'll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

#4) Rainbow Stew

Most Hippie Hating Lyrics:

You don't have to get high to get happy
Just think about what's in store
When people start doin' what they oughta be doin'
Then they won't be booin' no more

When a President goes through the White House door
Does what he says he'll do
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew

#3) Me And Crippled Soldiers Give A Damn

Most Hippie Hating Lyrics: 

Now that it's alright to burn the stars and stripes
Yes, nobody really needs old Uncle Sam
Might as well burn the bill of rights as well
And let our country go straight to hell
Only me and crippled soldiers give a damn

 

#2) The Fighting Side of Me

Most Hippie Hating Lyrics:

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.
They love our milk an' honey,
But they preach about some other way of livin'.
When they're runnin' down my country, hoss,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

#1) Okie From Muskogee

Most Hippie Hating Lyrics:

We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee;

We don't take no trips on LSD
We don't burn no 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' wool
We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy,
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do.
