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.

 

 

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,

 

*.** * *

Wear.ing jeans of blue.

 

* * ** * * *

You can't help but look bourgeois.

 

* *** * **

My attire was lacking.

 

* * ** **

So they sent me packing.

 

** ** * * * *

Left there feeling like an out-law.

 

 

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.

 

 

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.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Don't be a Class Warrior.

 

I regret that I came off like a jerk.

 

An absolute Class Warrior.

 

It's not like it's all perfect in my work.

 

Class Warrior.

 

 

The End
