This is the 1970 hit song written and sang by Merle Haggard. The song was #1 on the charts for three weeks and was nominated for Song of the Year by the CMA. The song is a warning against those voicing anti-American sentiment, which was very prevalent at the time. And, of course, it has on screen lyrics.
