Country deejays knows that I'm an outlaw
They'd never come to see me in this dive
Where bikers stare at cowboys
Who are laughin' at the hippies
Who are prayin' they'll get out of here alive

Loudmouth in the corner's getting to me
Talkin' 'bout my earrings and my hair
I guess he ain't read the signs that say I've been to prison
Someone ought to warn him
'Fore I knock him off his chair

'Cause my long hair just can't cover up my redneck
I've won every fight I've ever fought
And I don't need some turkey telling me that I ain't country
Saying I ain't worth the damned
Old ticket that he bought

'Cause I can sing all them songs about Texas
And I still do all the sad ones that I know
They tell me I look like Merle Haggard
And sound a lot like David Allan Coe

And the barmaid in the last town that we played in
Knew the words to every song I'd wrote
She said Jimmy Rabbit turned her on to my last album
Just about the time the jukebox broke

Yeah, Johnny Cash helped me get out of prison
Long before Rodriguez stole that goat
I've been the Rhinestone Cowboy for so long I can't remember
And I can do your every song
Hank Williams ever wrote

And I can sing all them songs about Texas
And I still do all the sad ones that I know
I can't help it, I look like Merle Haggard
And I sound a lot like David Allan Coe

But the country deejays all think I'm an outlaw
And they'd never come to see me in this dive
Where bikers stare at cowboys
Who are laughin' at the hippies
Who are prayin' they'll get out of here alive

The loudmouth in the corner's getting to me
Talkin' 'bout my earrings and my hair
