Charlie Daniels – Long Haired Country Boy Lyrics
People say I’m no good, and 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 nothin’
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 talking on 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 it’s true
But sometimes I think that preacher man, would like to do a little walkin’ too

But I ain’t askin’ nobody for nothin’
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

A poor girl wants to marry, a rich girl wants to flirt
A rich man goes to college, 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 asking nobody for nothin’
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
