Okie from Muskogee

Happy birthday Merle Haggard, 73 today.

The first time I remember hearing this tune was at an Otago University capping conert but it wasn’t with these words. Jon Gadsby had changed the lyrics to I’m proud to be a scourer from Mataura. (You may have to be a South Islander to get scourer to rhyme with Mataura).
