THE FIGHTIN' SIDE OF ME (Merle Haggard)
performed by Merle Haggard (1970)


E B7
I hear people talking bad
E B7
About the way they have to live here in this country
B7
Harping on the wars we fight
E
Griping about the way things ought to be
E B7
I don't mind them switching sides
E B7
And standing up for things they believe in
B7
When they're running down our country man
E
They're walking on the fighting side of me


E B7
They're walking on the fightin' side of me
B7
Running down a way of life
E
Our fighting men have fought and died to keep
E
If you don't love it, leave it
E7 A
Let this song that I'm singing be a warning
B7
When you're running down our country hoss
E
You're walking on the fightin' side of me


E B7
I read about some squirrely guy
E B7
Who claims that he just don't believe in fighting
B7
And I wonder just how long
E
The rest of us can count on being free
E B7
They love our milk and honey
E B7
But they preach about some other way of living
B7
And when they're running down our country man
E
They're walking on the fightin' side of me


E B7
They're walking on the fightin' side of me
B7
Running down a way of life
E
Our fighting men have fought and died to keep
E
If you don't love it, leave it
E7 A
Let this song that I'm singing be a warning
B7
When you're running down our country man
E C
You're walking on the fightin' side of me

I have been as well as other Americans have been brow beat over what our government has done, I NEED to see a little humour. The song is very true and is very deep and I do love it, I have sang it many times and I get mad every time somebody bashes us as Americans instead of aiming it right at the government like it should be. I am not making fun of what you put up there, it was more like a laugh of what used to be, you see, I also see so many Americans putting our country down too. I love my country but to get on your thread and start defending her against so many that are against her, how can I? there is way too much hatred for my country AND my countrymen/countrywomen. THAT IS A FACT

On a lighter note? I thank you very much for putting that up.tRrose

Awwwhug Thats very nice of you really, the sad part is is I am getting used to it, the bashing. There is nothing I can do about my government and there is nothing I can do about people not liking my country so I don't even go there on forums any longer about defense, it does no good. People will not see us as Individual Americans living a hard life as well as other countries all they see is what our government does. Hey, we can all hope it get's better, that is something everybody has in common with everybody else, hope, and it's free. Thank you for the nice threadhug

Even though it is supposed to be "a people and their government" it is not so. Period, and that simple.

arlene thats a daredevil practice youve got going there

i think those that conceived and originally governed had some ideas that are now seen as idealistic and that makes me sad

people even children are hungry
basic needs not being met

i know there are many varied reasons that are factors but gee
it is so sad

i figger this is a very young country so there is hope

keep hope alive

A very young country with old ideals, and it is scary. One in four children go hungry here, one in five adults go hungry here, yea nothing is effecting us eh?roll eyes unemployment is up higher than we have seen it in a while, the money we loanedroll eyes get that?--->roll eyes loaned the institutions? will only be put into the debt pile, even after we loan it to them, egadds, it is like a nightmare that won't end. And I for one don't think any runner has a chance at pulling us out of this. We were in a recession back in '99, greenspan came on and said so, then not two days later he reiterates and says "no, it was a mistake me saying that" wonder who changed his mindroll eyes our economy sucks, and the sad part is I don't know if anything can pull us out before we hit bottom.doh
