The Walkers - I wasn't born in Tennessee 1976

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 living right and being free.

Got my four pedal streel player,
Jimmy's got his fiddle making
like it was his own world.
Got them city hillbillies
and them green-eyed fillies,
Looking up at me like I was Merle.
An' if we can't fool 'em all the time,
It's all right with me.
'Cause it's still my song, ain't nothin' wrong,
An' I wasn't born in Tennessee.

I was seven an' ten years and hiding my fears,
Behind the sound of a steel guitar.
Though the city was rocking, we was country,
Sockin' it to 'em at a Mount Burnham bar.
Them city folks, we was doing our strokes,
And that don't qualify me.
I'll be back again, you remember then,
That I wasn't born in Tennessee.

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 living right an' bein' free.

(Instrumental)

I heard old Hag singing about doing his thing,
And I was proud of the things that he'd done.
And how them San Fran hippies and them L.A. yippies,
Ain't changin' that Okie none.
But with every show, I see his sideburns grow,
An' there's hair where his face used to be.
An' in a year or so, you may never know,
That I wasn't born, wasn't born,
wasn't born, wasn't born
I never knew a horse I didn't wager on.
I wasn't born in Tennessee.

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 living right and being free.

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 living right and being free.
