Long Haired Country Boy Lyrics – The Charlie Daniels Band

People say I’m no good
And crazy as a loon
‘Cause I get up in the mornin’
I get down 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 talkin’ 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 asking nobody for nothin’
If I can’t get it on my own
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 nothin’ at all
But I will tell another joke

But I ain’t asking nobody for nothin’
If I can’t get it on my own
You don’t like the way I’m livin’
You just leave this long haired country boy alone
