This is one of the classic country standards you must know if you play any country gigs at all. Merle Haggard's "Okie From Muskogee" is a timeless hit that is played and referenced by country stars old and new.

This song was destined for greatness with Merle singing lead and guitars by two of the hottest session guitarists in the business: Jerry Reed and James Burton.

The version we reference here is the studio version from 1969. You'll find it on the album "Hag" and Merle's first greatest hits album. There are hundreds of versions of this song. If you capture the song's vibe and spirit, you'll be able to take what you learn in these lessons and apply them to any version or style of this song that you play.

Let's get workin', man!
