I WONDER WHAT THEY'RE DOING IN MUSKOGEE

I wonder what they're doing in Muskogee
Are they still livin' right and bein' free
Do the squares still have a ball down on Main Street
And serve their country proudly overseas?

I bet things are a-changing in Muskogee
They don't get their kicks from pitchin' woo
The guys all let their hair grow long and shaggy
And go to San Francisco to say "I do".

It's the gals who wear the boots now to look manly
They proudly take their place on the football team
But football's not the roughest thing on campus
It's fending off rape charges from the dean.

CHORUS
You said you were so proud to be an Okie
You sang that even squares could have a ball
You say they wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all?

I bet they're smoking weed now in Muskogee
And getting all whacked out on PCP
'Cause they can't have you shooting at Iraqis
If you like to take your trips on LSD.

CHORUS
Are you still proud to be an Okie from Muskogee
Is your hometown still the squarest of them all
Do you still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
To show us how you'd heed the nation's call?

Or do you wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
To remind yourselves this is still the U.S.A.
I bet they wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
To remind us all this is still the U.S.A.
