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 laughing at the hippies 
Who are praying they'll get outta here alive 

The loud mouth in the corner's gettin' to me
 Talking 'bout my earrings and my hair
I guess he ain't read the signs that say I 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 red neck
I've won every fight, I've ever fought 
Hey, I don't need some turkey telling me that I ain't country 
And sayin' I ain't worth the damned ol' 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 Allen Coe

And the bar maid 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, Johny 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 you 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 Allen 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 laughing at the hippies 
Who are praying they'll get out of here alive 

The loud mouth in the corner's gettin' to me
 Talking 'bout my earrings and my hair
