Fightin' Side Of Me

This song is by George Jones and appears on the compilation album I'm a One Woman Man (1994).

Written by Merle Haggard.

(Walking on the fightin' side of me)

I hear people talkin' bad,
About the way they have to live here in this country;
Harpin' on the wars we fight,
An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be.

I don't mind 'em switchin' sides,
An' standin' up for things that they believe in.
But, When they're runnin' down our country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Their, walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down a way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and tried to keep.
Well, If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'.
And when you're runnin' down our country, hoss,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

--- Instrumental ---

I read about some squirrely guy,
Who claims, he just don't believe in fightin'.
An' I wonder just how long,
The rest of us can count on bein' free.

They love our milk an' honey,
But they preach about some other way of livin'.
And when they're runnin' down our country, man,
They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Aww, They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
Runnin' down the way of life,
Our fightin' men have fought and tried to keep.
Well, If you don't love it, leave it:
Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'.
And when you're runnin' down our country, hoss,
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Yes, when you runnin' down our country, hoss
You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.
