The Fighting Side Of Me
by Merle Haggard
 
 G 
I hear people talking bad
                                            D7 
About the way we have to live here in this country
 
Harping on the wars we fight
                                         G 
And griping about the way things oughta be
 
 
And I don't mind 'em switching sides
                                   D7 
And standing up for things they believe in
 
When they're running down my country man
                                         G 
They're walking on the fighting side of me 
 
 D7             G                                 D7 
Yeah they're walking on the fighting side of me
 
Running down the way of life
                       C                    G 
Our fighting men have fought and died to keep
 
If you don't love it leave it
                           G7     C 
Let this song I'm singing be a warning
           D7 
If you're running down my country man
                                        G 
You're walking on the fighting side of me 
 
 
I read about some squirrelly guy
                                     D7 
Who claims he just don't believe in fighting
 
And I wonder just how long
                                   G 
The rest of us can count on being free
 
 
They love our milk and honey
                                         D7 
But they preach about some other way of living
 
When they're running down my country hoss
                                         G 
They're walking on the fighting side of me 
 
repeat #3
