Friday Song Of The Day – Long Haired Country Boy

This weeks Friday Song Of The Day goes out to one of my best buds. He doesn’t have long hair (like me) but he certainly is a country boy and his heart his definitely in this song. This is Long Haired Country Boy by the Charlie Daniels Band (from the Fire on the Mountain album). As a treat I’ve also embedded a YouTube video of a performance from the 70s below the lyrics (click through to the site if you cannot see the video).

People say I’m no good, crazy as a loon
Cause I get stoned in the mornin’
I get drunk in the afternoon
Kinda 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 askin nobody for nothing
If I can’t get it on my own
If you don’t like the way I’m livin
You just leave this long haired country boy alone

Preacher man on the TV puttin 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 its true
But sometimes I think that preacher man would like to do a little walkin to

Cause I ain’t askin nobody for nothing
If I cant get it on my own
If you don’t like the way I’m livin
You just leave this long haired 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 a politician wants your vote
I don’t want much of nothing at all but I will take another toke

Cause I ain’t askin nobody for nothing
If I can’t get it on my own
If you don’t like the way I’m livin
You just leave this long haired country boy alone
