VERSE 1

 

Highway 60 goes,

 

Where the Floyds Fork flows.

 

The golf courses there aren't bad.

 

I feel the need to mention,

 

One time causing friction.

 

Mouthin' 'bout a dress code they had.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Derby City guy.

 

De.cided to buy,

 

Golf shirt with a V lo-go.

 

The imagery of Vikings.

 

Was much to my liking.

 

But the purchase was a no go.

 

 

Here I am in a white dress shirt with the Valhalla Golf Club logo, which I found at a thrift shop in Louisville, Kentucky.

CHORUS

 

I met a Class Warrior.

 

In a swank (East End) Pro Shop.

 

A resolute Class Warrior.

 

Who put my purchase to a stop.

 

Class Warrior.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Whatcha gonna do,

 

Wearing jeans of blue.

 

You can't help but look bourgeois.

 

My attire was lacking.

 

So they sent me packing.

 

Left there feeling like an outlaw.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

I was the Class Warrior.

 

In a swank (East End) Pro Shop.

 

An absolute Class Warrior.

 

Put my own purchase to a stop.

 

Class Warrior.

 

 

 

 

BRIDGE

 

That golf course is quite a beauty,

 

From the hill that the club house is on.

 

The old boy was just doing his duty,

 

Next time I'll simply shop Amazon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's a golf shirt which celebrates the Ryder Cup when it was held at Valhalla Golf Club.  

 

VERSE 4

 

Brother, here's a plan.

 

En.ter 'hat in hand',

 

And when you're told: "There's the door."

 

Don't mistake it as loathing,

 

Of your common clothing.

 

By those in the P-G-A store.

 

 

 

 

VERSE 5

 

Guess I better stop,

 

Where common folk shop.

 

For clothes, which have been ex-pelled.

 

And on the wall, a painting,

 

Had me almost fainting.

 

From a beauty few have be-held.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also found at a thrift shop, this awesome green golf shirt which commemorates the 2010 PGA Championship held at Shistling Straits Golf and Country Club in Sheboygan, WI.

 

CHORUS

 

I was a Class Warrior.

 

But my casa had walls where that would work.

 

Don't be a Class Warrior.

 

I regret that I came off like a jerk. 

 

Class Warrior.

 

 

The End
