LONG HAIRED COUNTRY BOY

People say I'm no good and crazy as a loon,
'Cause I get stoned in the morning; I get drunk in the afternoon.
Kind of like my old blue-tick hound, I like to lay around in the shade,
And I ain't got no money, but I damn sure got it made,
'Cause I ain't asking nobody for nothing, if I can't get it on my own.
If you don't like the way I'm living, you just leave this longhaired country boy alone.

Preacher man preaching on the TV, putting down the rock and roll,
Wants me to send a donation, 'cause he's worried about my soul.
He said Jesus walked on the water, and I know that it's true,
But sometimes I think that preacher man would like to do a little walking too.
But I ain't asking for nothing, if I can't get it on my own.
If you don't like the way I'm living, you just leave this longhaired country boy alone.

A poor girl wants to marry, and a rich girl wants to flirt.
A rich man goes to college, and a poor man goes to work.
A drunkard wants another drink of wine, and the politician wants the vote.
I don't want much of nothing at all, but I will take another toke.
But I ain't asking nobody for nothing, if I can't get it on my own.
If you don't like the way I'm living, you just leave this longhaired country boy alone.
