  • People say I'm no good
    And crazy as a loon
    'Cause I get stoned in the morning
    And get drunk in the afternoon
    Kinda like my old blue tick hound
    I like to lay around in the shade
    And I ain't got no money
    But I damn sure got it made

    'Cause I ain't asking nobody for nothin'
    If I cant get it on my own
    If you don't like the way I'm livin'
    Just leave this long haired country boy alone

    Preacher man talking on T.V.
    Puttin' down the rock and roll
    Wants me to send a donation
    'Cause hes worried about my soul
    He said Jesus walked on the water
    And I know that its true
    But some times I think that preacherman
    Would like to do a little walking too

    But I ain't asking nobody for nothin'
    If I can't get it on my own
    If you don't like the way I'm livin'
    Ya just leave this long haired country boy alone

    A poor girl wants to marry
    And a rich girl wants to flirt
    A rich man goes to college
    And a poor man goes to work
    A drunkard wants another drink of wine
    And a politician wants a vote
    I don't want much of nothin' at all
    But I will take another toke

    But I ain't asking nobody for nothin'
    If I can't get it on my own
    If you don't like the way I'm livin'
    Ya just leave this long haired country boy alone
