Long Haired Country Boy- Charlie Daniels Band

    A perfect song for an alternating bass. It’s in the key of D (and spends much of its time over the chord).

    Intro and Transition

    Verse 1

    People say I'm no good and crazy as a loon
    Cause I get stoned in the mornin, get drunk in the afternoon
    Kinda like my ole blue tick hound I like to lay around in the shade
    I ain't got no money but I've damn sure got it made


    And I ain't askin' nobody for nothing
    If I can't get it on my own
    If you don't like the way I'm livin'
              G                                 D
    You just leave this long haired country boy alone

    Verse 2

    The remaining two verses are all sung over the D chord.

    Preacher man talkin' on the radio, 
    puttin' down the rock and roll
    He wants me to give a donation 
    cause he's worried about my soul
    He said Jesus walked on the water 
    and I know that it's true
    But sometimes I think that preacher man 
    might do a little walkin' too

    Verse 3

    Poor girl wants to marry
    and the rich girl wants to flirt
    Rich man goes to college 
    and the poor man goes to work
    Drunkard wants another drink of wine 
    and the politician wants a vote                                                       
    I don't want much of nothing at all
    but I will take another toke
