Lyrics

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

Fightin' Side of Me was #1 for 3 weeks ending March 14, March 21 and March 28 back in 1970... only charted for 14 weeks. This was Merle's 9th #1 song as well as 14th top ten hit.

There have been no just wars since WW2. All oppressive campaigns our country has perpetuated.
