I Don't Have Any More Love Songs Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Back To The Barrooms

There's been some things that I've wanted to say a long time
Never have I spent a day without you on my mind
I've tried a lot of song and I need to try one that's new
I don't have anymore love songs to try on you.

We just can't ever get it together it seems
Your arms don't hold me the way that they do in my dreams
And it's hard to make up the things that you never do
I don't have anymore love songs to make up bout you.

I don't have anymore love songs to write for you
Too many I wrote before have never come true
It's hard to make up and play the thing that you do
I don't have anymore love songs to sing for you.

And I don't have anymore love songs to write for you
Too many I wrote before have never come true
I borrowed this song from Hank Williams Junior it's true
'Cause I don't have anymore love songs to sing for you...

Leonard Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Back To The Barrooms

When Leonard finally came to California
He was twenty-one years old as I recall
He loved to write a song and pick the guitar
And he came to hang a gold one on the wall.

The town in which he lived is not important
But you'll know which town I mean by the time I'm thru
He soon became a famous entertainer
But Leonard was a name he never used

He was on his way to having what he wanted
Just about as close as one could be
Hey! once he even followed Elvis Presley
And he wrote a lot of country songs for me.

But he laid it all aside to follow Jesus
For years he chose to let his music go
But preaching wasn't really meant for LEONARD
But how in the hell was Leonard s'posed to know.

Well, life began to twist its way around him
And I wondered how he carried such a load
He came back again to try his luck in music
And lost his wife and family on the road.

[Spoken:]
After that he seemed to bog down even deeper
And I saw what booze and pills could really do
And I wondered if I'd ever see him sober
But I forgot about a Friend that Leonard knew.

Well, Leonard gave me lots of inspiration
He helped teach me how to write a country song
And he even brought around a bag of groceries
Hey! back before Muskogee came along.

Really I'm not trying to hide his showname
Or the town in which this episode began

[Spoken:]
Somehow I had to write a song for old Tommy
If just to see the smilin' faces in the band.

When Leonard finally came to California
He was twenty-one years old as I recall
And he loved to write a song and pick the guitar
And he came to hang a Gold one on the wall...

Could be holding you tonight
Could quit doing wrong, start doin' right
You don't care about what I think
I think I'll just stay here and drink

Hey, puttin' you down, don't square no deal
Least you know the way I feel
Take all the money in the bank
I think I'll just stay here and drink

Listen close and you can hear
That loud jukebox playin' in my ear
Ain't no woman gonna change the way I think
I think I'll just stay here and drink

Hurtin' me now, don't mean a thing
Since lovin' you, don't feel no pain
My mind ain't nothin' but a total blank
I think I'll just stay here and drink, yeah

When the ceremony was over
A lad stood alone in tears
For he had just said goodbye to the one
He had loved through the years.

He stood all alone with his head bowed down
As though his heart would break
The parson came over and took his hand
And to him these words he did say.

When God comes and gathers His jewels
All his treasures of diamonds and gold
You'll meet her up there in heaven so fair
When God comes and gathers His jewels.

Every night when the pale moon is shining
You can see this lad all alone
With his eyes lifted up toward heaven
He's repeating these words he was told.

When God comes and gathers His jewels
All his treasures of diamonds and gold
You'll meet her up there in heaven so fair
When God comes and gathers His jewels.

When God comes and gathers His jewels
All his treasures of diamonds and gold
You'll meet her up there in heaven so fair
When God comes and gathers His jewels...

Suppertime Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

Many years ago in days of childhood
I used to play till the evening sun would come
Then winding down that old familiar pathway
I heard my mother call at set of sun.

Come home, come home it's suppertime
The shadows lengthen fast
Come home, come home it's suppertime
We're going home at last.

Some of my fondest memories of my childhood
Are woven around suppertime
When my mother used to call
From the backsteps of the old homeplace
She said come home son it's suppertime.

Oh, what I'd have to hear that one more time
But you know time has woven a realization of truth
That is even more thrilling
And that's when we get that call from the greatest glory
To come home on suppertime
When all of God's children gather around the table
With the love of himself
And we'll celebrate the greatest suppertime of all.

Come home, come home it's suppertime
The shadows lengthen fast
Come home come home it's suppertime
We're going home at last...

He Walks With Me (In The Garden) Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The son of God discloses.

And he walks with me and he talks with me
And he tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known.

He speaks and the sound of his voice is so sweet
The birds hush their singing
And the melody that he gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.

And he walks with me and he talks with me
And he tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known.

I'd stay in the garden with him
Though the night around me is falling
But He bids me go through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling...

Softly And Tenderly Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See on the portals he's waiting and watching
Watching for you and for me.

Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling, oh, sinners come home.

Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading
He's pleading for you and for me
Why should we linger and heed not his mercy
Mercy for you and for me.

Thought of the wonderful love he has promised
Promised for you and for me
Though we have sinn'd he has mercy and pardon
Pardon for you and for me.

Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling, oh, sinners come home...

Why Me Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

Why me Lord what have I ever done
To deserve even one of the pleasures I've known
Tell me Lord what did I ever do to be worthy
Of You or the kindness You've shown.

Lord help me, Jesus I've wasted it so
Help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I've needed You so
Help me Jesus my soul's in Your hand.

Try me Lord if you think there's a way
I can try to repay all I've taken from You
Maybe Lord I can show someone else
What I've been through myself
On my way back to You.

Lord help me Jesus I've wasted it so
Help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I've needed You so
Help me Jesus my soul's in Your hand.

Jesus my soul's in your hand...

Where No One Stands Alone Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

Once I stood in the night with my head bowed low
In darkness as black as the sea
In my heart felt alone and I cried oh Lord
Don't hide your face from me.

Hold my hand all the way every hour every day
From here to the great unknown
Take my hand let me stand
Where no one stands alone.

Like a king I may live in a palace so fine
With great riches to call my own
But I don't know a thing in this whole wide world
That's worse than being alone.

Hold my hand all the way every hour every day
From here to the great unknown
Take my hand let me stand
Where no one stands alone...

One Day At A Time Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

I'm only human I'm just a man
Help me to believe in what I could be and all that I am
Show me the stairway that I have to climb
Lord for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

One day at a time sweet Jesus that's all I'm asking from you
Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

Do you remember when you walked among men
Well Jesus you know if you're looking below it's worse now than then
Pushing and shoving crawding my mind
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

One day at a time sweet Jesus that's all I'm asking from you
Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

Yes, just for my sake teach me to take one day at a time...

What A Friend We Have In Jesus Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and grieves to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Of what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptation
Is there trouble anywhere
We should never be discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Of what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.

Can we find up friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrow share
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer...

Well, I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home
A band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

Well, if you get there before I do
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all of my friends that I'm coming too
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

Hey, swing low sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home...

Old Rugged Cross Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a word of lost sinners were slain.

I will cherish the old rugged cross.

Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown...

Keep On The Sunny Side Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Songs For The Mama That Tried

There's a dark and a trouble side of life
There's a bright and a sunny side too
Though we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also have in view.

So keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help you everyday it will brighten all the way
If you'll keep on the sunny side of life.

Oh the storm in its fury broke today
Crushing hopes that I cherish so dear
Clouds and storms will in time pass away
And the sun again will shine bright and clear.

So keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help you everyday it will brighten all the way
If you'll keep on the sunny side of life.

Let us greed with a song of hope each day
Though the moments be cloudy or fair
Let us trust at our Saviour always will keep us
Everyone in his care.

So keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help you everyday it will brighten all the way
If you'll keep on the sunny side of life...

Big City Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

I'm tired of this dirty old city
Entirely too much work and never enough play
And I'm tired of these dirty old sidewalks
Think I'll walk off my steady job today

Turn me loose, set me free
Somewhere in the middle of Montanna
And gimme all I've got comin' to me
And keep your retirement
And your so called social security
Big City, turn me loose and set me free

Been working everyday since I was twenty
Haven't got a thing to show for anything I've done
There's folks who never work and they've got plenty
Think it's time some guys like me had some fun

So, turn me loose, set me free
Somewhere in the middle of Montanna
And gimme all I've got comin' to me
And keep your retirement
And your so called social security
Big city, turn me loose and set me free

Yeah, big city, turn me loose and set me free

My Favorite Memory Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

The first time we met
Is a favorite memory of mine
They say time changes all it pertains to
But your memory is stronger than time

I guess, everything does change
Except what you choose to recall
There's a million good daydreams to dream on
But baby, you are my favorite memory of all

Like the night we made love in the hallway
Slept all night long on the floor
Like the winter we spent on Lake Shasta alone
Closer than ever before

And I remember than London vacation
It was you, made the whole thing a ball
There's a million good times I could dwell on
But baby, you are my favorite memory of all

The first time we met
Is a favorite memory of mine
They say time changes all it pertains to
But your memory is stronger than time

I guess, everything does change
Except what you choose to recall
There's a million good daydreams to dream on
But baby, you are my favorite memory of all

Good Old American Guest Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

Well, I'm longing to ride on a freight train
Pull a slouch hat down low on my ears
I'm yearning to leave this old town on the flight
And loose all my troubles and cares.

In this day of airplanes and highways
Hey the slow way is sometimes the best
I'm longing to ride on a freight train
And be a good old American guest.

Yes I wanna live on the land that I've loved and I've labored for
And spend a few days headed west
I'm longing to ride on a freight train
And be a good old American guest.

Well the pressures of life they got to me
And they got down and deep in my soul
I'm tired of the rat-race wanna go back to the slow pace
And hear a fast train rattle and roll.

I wanna live out my days like a hobo
And take myself that long-needed rest
Hey hey I'm longing to ride on a freight train
And be a good old American guest.

Yes, I wanna live on the land that I've loved and I've labored for
And spend a few days headed west
I'm longing to ride on a freight train
And be a good old American guest.

Oh yes, I'm longing to ride on a freight train
And be a good old American guest...

I Think I'm Gonna Live Forever Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

When you first left me baby I thought I would surely lose my mind
Every day of life was just another day gone by
Well, you really had me down in a deep depression
I wanted real bad just to crawl off and die.

But now I think I'm gonna live forever
Hey, dyin' ain't on my list of things to do
I think I'm gonna live forever
Hey, it feels so good to be out of love with you.

Hey babe, you left me hangin' just tryin' to aggravate me all the way
And you got it done just the way you always do
But all you really did was aggravate me
'Cause I got my health and I got over you.

And now I think I'm gonna live forever
Hey dyin' ain't on my list of things to do
I think I'm gonna live forever
Hey, it feels so good to be out of love with you...

This Song Is Mine Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

Sometimes songs are done by singers that don't mean them
And at times I've done the same and couldn't sing them
At times I've written songs about some things I didn't do
But these are my words and mine alone these words are true.

I've written words in many ways to make them rhyme
And at times I've stolen notes that wasn't mine
Sometimes I changed my style all around to make it new
These are my words and this is my way and it's for you.

'Cause I love you with all of my heart my soul and my mind
These are my words those notes are mine this song is mine.

'Cause I love you honey with all of my heart my soul and my mind
These words are mine those notes are mine this song is mine...

Stop The World & Let Me Off Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

Hey, stop the world and let me off
I'm tired of going round and round
I've played the game of love and lost
Hey, stop the world and let me off.

My dreams are shattered don't you see
'Cause you no longer care for me
I miss the wonder of your kiss
Why did you leave me here like this.

Hey, stop the world and let me off
I'm tired of going round and round
I've played the game of love and lost
Hey, stop the world and let me off.

My dreams are shattered can't you see
'Cause you no longer care for me
I miss the wonder of your kiss
How come you left me here like this.

Hey, stop the world and let me off
I'm tired of going round and round
I've played the game of love and lost
Hey, stop the world and let me off...

Are The Good Times Really Over Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

I wish a buck was still silver
It was back when the country was strong
Back before Elvis
Before the Vietnam war came along

Before The Beatles and 'Yesterday'
When a man could still work, still would
The best of the free life behind us now
And are the good times really over for good?

Are we rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance
For the Flag or the Liberty Bell

Wish a Ford and a Chevy
Could still last ten years, like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
Are the good times really over for good?

I wish Coke was still Cola
And a joint was a bad place to be
It was back before Nixon lied to us all on TV

Before microwave ovens
When a girl could still cook and still would
The best of the free life behind us now
Are the good times really over for good?

Are we rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance
For the Flag or the Liberty Bell

Wish a Ford and a Chevy
Could still last ten years, like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
Are the good times really over for good?

Stop rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell
Stand up for the Flag
And let's all ring the Liberty Bell

Let's make a Ford and a Chevy
Still last ten years like they should
The best of the free life is still yet to come
The good times ain't over for good

Texas Fiddle Song Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

I get this going fever everytime I hear a tune
That talks about South Texas where the cactus is in bloom
I feel I oughta be there every evening after dark
To hear the fiddler fiddlin' around a tune called Old Joe Clark.

We played that show in Tulsa then it was Ft Worth bound
We headed south on 35 to that South Texas town
It's a different world and a lot of fun if you like that country sound
You can find yourself a partner when they boil that cabbage down.

Well, if you're ever down in Texas and feeling all alone
There's a lot of kicker places just south of San Antone
Ain't nothin' fancy mind ya just a place where good folks go
You can hear the bootheels start to click when they play the Cotton Eyed Joe.

You Don't Have Very Far To Go Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

You always find a way, to hurt my pride
If I'm not cryin', you're not, satisfied
I don't know why you want to, hurt me so
If you're tryin' to break my heart,
You don't have very far to go

You don't have very far to go before the heartaches, begin
I already feel the sadness, of a heartbreak, settin' in
You've turnin' down the flame of love, too low
If you're tryin' to break my heart,
You don't have very far to go

Turn around

You don't have very far to go before the heartaches begin
I already feel the sadness of a heartbreak settin' in
You can't love me and still love, to hurt me so
If you're tryin' to break my heart
You don't have very far to go

I Always Get Lucky With You Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

I've had good luck and bad luck and no luck, it's true
But I always get lucky with you
I've been turned on and turned down when the bars close at two
But I always get lucky with you.

I keep two strikes against me most all of the time
And when it's down to a phone call I'm minus a dime
I've had good days and bad days but when the day is allthrough
Hey, I'll always get lucky with you.

I keep two strikes against me most all of the time
When it's down to a phone call I'm minus a dime
There's been good days and bad days but when the day is allthrough
Hey, I'll always get lucky with you.

I Won't Give Up My Train Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Big City

I pulled into Memphis thirteen minutes early first time in two weeks
That's where she came to meet me
As I stepped down off four-fifty-one, I needed sleep
The baby's over due I know, she need's some things
But the more that we discuss it, it's the same

Long train rollin', got a feelin' and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer, this feelin's gettin' stronger
It won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train

The baby came in April while I was in Chicago in the pourin' rain
With twelve flat cars, six rusted tankers
three box cars and an empty sack of mail
And though I'll be lonely, some nights I know
There's just no other way to explain

Long train rollin', got a feelin' and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer, this feelin's gettin' stronger
It won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train

Long train rollin', got a feelin' and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer, this feelin's gettin' stronger
It won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train

[Meryl:]
Miracles appear in the strangest of places
Fancy me fining you here
[George:]
The last time I saw you was just out of Houston
Let Me Sit down, let me buy you a beer

[Meryl:]
Your presence is welcome with me and my friend here
This is a hangout of mine

And to taste yesterday's wine.

Yesterday's wine, yesterday's wine
Aging with time, like yesterday's wine
Yesterday's wine, yesterday's wine
We're aging with time, like yesterday's wine.

You give the appearence of one widely travelled

Come sit down here with us and tell us your story
If its true you'll like yesterday's wine.

After I Sing All My Songs Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : A Taste Of Yesterday's Wine

When the show is over and every one is gone
That's when this lonely feelin' comes along
Everybody loves me while the show is goin' on
But I need someone to love me after I sing all my songs.

I smile and face the music while they just cheer me on
But this empty feeling keep on holdin' on
Lord I wish I had somebody just to be my only one
I need someone to hold me after I sing all my songs.

After I sing my songs, after the crowd is gone
I need someone to hold me after I sing all my songs.

After I sing my songs, after the crowd is gone
I need someone to hold me after I sing all my songs...

I Think I've Found A Way Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : A Taste Of Yesterday's Wine

I Think I've Found a Way to Live

I never thought I'd ever conquer my weakness
'Cause everybody knows that my weakness is you
But the answer came this morning
Ad you should be the first to hear
What a simple little thing I have to do.

I think I've found a way to live without you
I think I've found a way I can get by
I think I've found a way I can be happy, almost
And all I have to do is die.

I know everybody wonders
Why drinking doesn't kill me
And I myself at times have wondered why
But drinking never gave me anything near
That I needed or the nerve it took
For me to say goodbye.

I think I've found a way to live without you
I think I've found a way I can get by
I think I've found a way I can be happy, aw
And all I have to do is die.

I think I've found a way to live without you
And all I have to do is die...

C.C. Waterback Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : A Taste Of Yesterday's Wine

C.C. Waterback, one tequila sunrise
One's for my aching head, the other's for my bloodshot eyes
Yeah, last night I let it all hang out, I guess that's how my head got sore
C.C. Waterback, I can't stand the pain no more

Last night we got invited to a party at the Jones' place
For fun and games and booze and things
I guess I must have drunk a case

Well, that lady of mine, she drank warm red wine
'Til she couldn't even find the door
She wound up on the Jones' bed and I wound up on the floor

I gave you C.C. Waterback, one tequila sunrise
One's for my aching head, the other's for my bloodshot eyes
Last night I let it all hang out, yeah, I guess that's how my head got sore
I said, "C.C. Waterback, can't stand the pain no more"

And I fed you, C.C. Waterback, one tequila sunrise
One's for my aching head, the other's for my bloodshot eyes
Last night I let it all hang out, I guess that's how my head got sore
I said, "C.C. Waterback, I can't stand the pain no more"

Silver Eagle Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : A Taste Of Yesterday's Wine

Well, he rides into town on the back of a big silver eagle
Strapped to his shoulders are the burden of staying on top
And the lines in his face tell the story of an uphill flight
You can tell how he feels day by day by the songs that he writes

He's loved by millions, somehow he's their prisoner as well
As he rides down the road in his ten wheel [Incomprehensible]
Now he lives for the day that the eagle will carry him home
'Cause the glamor is over nearly all of his seeds have been flown

Letting go silver eagle, there must be a better way of life
For this great American poet who's singing his songs about
The everyday working man's life

One night on the road just south of the Idaho line
We were smoking some contracts and attempting to alter our minds
Then just before daylight Hag pushed back his head and he said
"I wouldn't put in too much emphasis on being a star
Can we do a little bit of living instead"

Letting go silver eagle, there must be a better way of life
For this great American poet who's singing his songs about
The everyday working man's life

Letting go silver eagle, there must be a better way of life
This great American poet who's singing his songs about

No Show Jones Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : A Taste Of Yesterday's Wine

Hey George, did you know Waylon and Willie?
The outlaws, I didn't know that at all
Did you know roger was king of the road?
You got it possum

Everyone knows hank's been in prison
We didn't know that
And dolly's got two big reasons she's well known

They call me no show Jones
They call me no show Jones
Still I'm never on
Still never on
Instead of just singin' my songs, my whereabouts are unknown
They call me no show Jones
They call me no show Jones

Here's [?] Loretta is [?] daughter
Ah, she's mighty pretty son
Johnny wears black, his tans all along
Boy, that's lonesome

Everyone knows Kenny is a gambler
I didn't know that at all
About Tammy
Tammy had some kind excuse, she divorced George Jones

They call me no show, they call me no show Jones
I'm still never on
I'm still never on
Instead of just singin' my songs, my whereabouts are unknown
They call me no show Jones
They call me no show Jones

They call me no show, they call me no show Jones
I'm still never on
On what?
The stage
Singin' my songs, the whereabouts are unknown
They call me no show Jones
They call me no show Jones

Going Where The Lonely Go Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

Rollin' with the flow
Goin' where the lonely go
Anywhere the lights are low
Goin' where the lonely go

Makin' up things to do
Not runnin' in all directions
Trying to find you
I'm just rollin' with the flow
Goin' where the lonely go

And I've got to keep rollin'
I can't lay down
Sleep won't hardly come
When there's loneliness all around
I've got to keep goin'
Travelin' down this lonesome road
I'll be rollin' with the flow
Goin' where the lonely go

I've got to keep rollin'
I can't lay down
Sleep won't hardly come
When there's loneliness all around
I've got to keep goin'
Travelin' down this lonesome road
I'll be rollin' with the flow
Goin' where the lonely go

Why Am I Drinkin' Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

Hey, why am I drinkin'
Rthere's no real reason to quit
And why am I thinkin'
God know I'm trying to forget.

And why does that woman
Who stay on my mind night and day
And why am I drinkin'
Why am I hurtin' this way?

Is love just another word for mem'ry
And is love just another word of pain
The question is that love we really answered
And if so why is love so much to blame?

If love is what we're really after
Then why am I runnin' away
And why am I drinkin'
Why am I hurtin' this way?

If love is what what we're really after
Then why am I runnin' away
And why am I drinkin'
Why am I hurtin' this way?

Yes honey. why am I drinkin'
Why am I hurtin' this way?...

If I Had Left It Up To You Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

You made plans to leave a thousand times I know
And a thousand times I should have let you go
But each time I'll always beg you back somehow
If I'd left it up to you it'd all be over now

It'd all be over now cept the crying
I'd be used to spending all my nights alone
Wish I'd found the way to let you go somehow
If I'd left it up to you it'd all be over now

It'd all be over now cept the crying
I'd be used to spending all my nights alone
Wish I'd found the way to let you go somehow
If I'd left it up to you it'd all be over now

I Won't Give Up My Train Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

I pulled into Memphis thirteen minutes early first time in two weeks
That's where she came to meet me
As I stepped down off four-fifty-one, I needed sleep
The baby's over due I know, she need's some things
But the more that we discuss it, it's the same

Long train rollin', got a feelin' and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer, this feelin's gettin' stronger
It won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train

The baby came in April while I was in Chicago in the pourin' rain
With twelve flat cars, six rusted tankers
three box cars and an empty sack of mail
And though I'll be lonely, some nights I know
There's just no other way to explain

Long train rollin', got a feelin' and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer, this feelin's gettin' stronger
It won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train

Long train rollin', got a feelin' and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer, this feelin's gettin' stronger
It won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train

Shopping For Dresses Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

Down through the ages men have died for their women
And they've done so so many times
But each time I loved one I always lost one
And I guess the right one is so hard to fine.

So I'm shopping for dresses with no one to wear them
One in each color and one in each style
Maybe some day I'll find me a lady to wear them
And my shopping will be done for a while.

I'll bet somewhere's a lady a shopping for riches
Comparing the valleys and praising each pair
Maybe someday the good Lord will let us together
And we'll both have a new wardrobe to wear.

But I'm shopping for dresses with no one to wear them
One in each color and one in each style
Maybe some day I'll find me a lady to wear them
And my shopping will be done for a while...

You Take Me For Granted Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

My legs and my feet have walked 'till they can't hardly move
From tryin' to please you
And my back is sore from bendin' over backwards
To just lay the world at your door.

And I'm trying so hard to keep a smile on a sad face
While deep down it's breakin' my heart
And as sure as the sunshines I'll be a lifetime
Not knowin' if I've done my part.

'Cause you take me for granted
And it's breakin' my heart
And as sure as the sunshines I'll be a lifetime
Not knowin' if I've done my part.

And as sure as the sun shines I'll be a lifetime
Not knowin' if I've done my part...

Half A Man Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

If I only had one arm to hold you well better yet if I had none at all
Then I wouldn't have two arms that ache for you
And I'd have one less mem'ry to recall
If I only had one ear to listen to the lies that you told to me
Then I would more closely resemble the half a man that you've made of me.

And if I only had one leg to stand on
Then how much how much truer picture you'd see
And then I would more closely resamble the half of man
that you've made of me
Yeah, then I would more closely resamble the half of man
that you've made of me...

For All I Know Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

For all I know you never cared about me
And chances are I never crossed your mind
Maybe you won't understand me calling
But darling it's been such a long long time.

For all I know there may be someone with you now
But may be he won't mind the friendly call
You've already made it clear that you stopped loving me
And for all I know you never cared at all.

I can't help it if I sound like I've been crying
'Cause darling I've been crying all night long
I just call to let you know just how much I need you
And for all I know you may be there alone.

Surely you must know I'd give the world to see you now
And could be you'd like to have me one more time
You've already made it clear that you stopped loving me
But for all I know I may have lost my mind.

And for all I know I may have lost my mind.

Nobody's Darlin' But Mine Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Going Where The Lonely Go

Come lay by my side little darlin'
Come lay your cool hand on my brow
Promise me that you will always be
Nobody's darlin' but mine.

You're as sweet as the flowers of springtime
You're as pure as the dew from the rose
And I'd rather be somebody's darlin'
Than a poor boy that nobody knows.

Be nobody's darlin' but mine love
Be honest be faithful be kind
And promise me that you will always be
Nobody's darlin' but mine.

Goodbye, goodbye little darlin'
I'm leaving this cold world behind
So promise me that you will never be
Nobody's darlin' but mine...

Pancho And Lefty Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

[Willie:]
Living on the road my friend, is gonna keep you free and clean
Now you were your skin like iron, your breath as hard as kerosene
Weren't your mama's only boy, but her favorite one it seems
She began to cry, when you said goodbye, and sank into your dreams.

Poncho was a bandit boys his horse was fast as polished steel
He wore his gun outside his pants for all the honest world to feel
Poncho met his match you know on the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dyin' words, oh, but that's the way it goes.

All the Federalis say
We could've had him any day
We only let him slip away
out of kindness I suppose.

Lefty he can't sing the blues, all night long like he used to
The dust that Poncho bit down south, ended up in Lefty's mouth
Day they laid poor Poncho low, Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go, ain't nobody knows.

All the Federalis say
We could've had him any day
We only let him slip away
out of kindness I suppose.

[Merle:]
The poets tell how Poncho fell, and Lefty's living in a cheap hotel
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold, so the story ends we're told
Poncho needs your prayers, it's true, but save a few for Lefty, too
He only did what he had to do,now, he's growing old.

All the Federalis say
We could've had him any day
We only let him slip away
out of kindness I suppose.

A few Federalis say
We could've had him any day
We only let him go so long
out of kindness I suppose...

It's My Lazy Day Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

Well, I might have gone fishin', I got to thinkin' it over
The road to the river is a mighty long way
Well, it must be the reason, no rhyme or no reason
I'm takin' it easy, it's my lazy day.

I never mind callin' 'cause I ain't comin'
Just get you on by me and stay out of my way, stay out of my way
A little bit thinkin' drives me to drinkin'
Hey, I'm a takin' it easy, it's my lazy day.

Well. I might have gone fishin', I got to thinkin' it over
The road to the river is a mighty long way
Well, it must be the reason, no rhyme or no reason
I'm takin' it easy, it's my lazy day...

My Mary Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

I take a trip every evening
Strolling down memory lane
I'm walkin' again those familiar paths
Dreaming those dreams again.

And I can always see my sweetheart
Just as she used to be
Waiting for someone at the garden gate
And I know that someone is me.

Big brown eyes and pearly hair
And you'd tell that's Mary
Rosy cheeks and ruby lips
Can't you tell that's Mary.

Ofttimes in the evenings we'd go strolling
Hand in hand together beneath the pepper tree
And I can feel her hand in mine as I sit alone tonight
Dreaming of the times I spent with Mary.

Ofttimes in the evenings we'd go strolling
Hand in hand together beneath the pepper tree
And I can feel her hand in mine as I sit alone tonight
Dreaming of the times I spent with Mary.

Oh gee, wouldn't it be wonderful
To open up the doors of the past
And live again as yesterday
But you know no matter where I wander
No matter where I roam
There'll always be a place in my heart, boys
For a girl way back, for a girl that I used to call Mary...

Reasons To Quit Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

Reasons to quit, smoke and booze don't do me like before
And I'm hardly ever sober and my ole friends
Don't come around much anymore
Reasons to quit the low is always lower than the high
And the reasons to quit don't outnumber all the reasons why.

So we keep smokin and we keep drinkin
Havin fun and never thinkin'
Laughin' at the price tag the we paid
And we keep roarin down the fast lane
Like two young men feelin' no pain
And the reasons for quitins are gettin bigger each day.

Reasons to quit I can't afford the habit all the time
And I need be sober I need write some new songs that will rhyme
Reasons to quit they have no rival reason when your high
And the reasons to quit don't outnumber all the reasons why.

So we keep smokin' and we keep drinkin'
Havin fun and never thinkin'
And laughin' at the price tag that we paid
And we keep roarin' down the fast lane
Like two young men feelin no pain
And the reasons for quitins are gettin bigger each day.

And the reason for quittins are gettin bigger each day...

No Reason To Quit Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

There's a circle of people where I'm no longer welcome
I'm ashamed to say that I'm no longer fit
I could sober up tomorrow and face my friends again
But I've got no reason to quit
No I've got no reason for living right and there's no other way to forget
I could sober up tomorrow and face my friends again
But I've got no reason to quit
[guitar - mandolin]
I've got no reason for living right and there's no other way to forget
I know down deep inside me I'm man enough to change
But I've got no reason to quit

Still Water Runs The Deepest Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

Still water runs the deepest
Like a love complete and through
So peaceful and dependable
I can't say the same about you.

Your love is cold and selfish
And it never could be true
One time I loved you truly
I can't say the same about you.

I'm leaving and I won't be back
I'm goin' to where I belong
Too long we've been together
And too long you've done me wrong.

Still water runs the depest
Like a love complete and through
So peaceful and dependable
I can't say the same about you.

Well, I'm leaving and I won't be back
I'm goin' to where I belong
Too long we've been together
And too long you've done me wrong.

Still water runs the depest
Like a love complete and through
So peaceful and dependable
I can't say the same about you...

My Life's Been A Pleasure Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

I still love you as I did in yesterday
Many years have gone by though it seems just like a day
It's no wonder that I love you you have been so kind and true
There will never be another it will always be just you.

We've come along the way together when you've proved your love is true
My life's been a pleasure and it's all because of you
And to me you'll always be just as sweet as flowers in May
And I'll still love you as I did in yesterday.

I still love you as I did in yesterday
Many years have gone by though it seems just like a day
It's no wonder that I love you you have been so kind and true
There will never be another it will always be just you.

We've come along the way together when you've proved your love is true
My life's been a pleasure and it's all because of you
And to me you'll always be just as sweet as flowers in May
And I'll still love you as I did in yesterday.

And to me you'll always be just as sweet as flowers in May
And I'll still love you as I did in yesterday...

All The Soft Places To Fall Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

Most of my life I've been runnin' around
Payin' and havin' a ball
And maybe I've been on a party too long
These mem'ries are fond to recall.

You see we've got this thing
About women smokin' and good alcohol
Now I'm lookin' for a homelife and clean smellin' sheets
And all the soft places to fall.

The women we've known have been many
But they don't understand us at all
Though we've spent many a long hours
Hopin' some old love would call.

Surely somebody somewhere still wants us
Or don't nobody wants us at all
We're lookin' for a homelife and clean smellin' sheets
And all the soft places to fall.

Most of our lives we've been outlaws
Slept with our backs to the wall
I'm a rambler, I'm a seeker and we're gettin' weaker
A whole lot more likely to fall.

We're tired of the rocks and brambles
Those barbed wire fences at all
We're lookin' for a homelife and clean smellin' sheets
And all the soft places to fall.

Most of our lives we've been outlaws
Slept with our backs to the wall
I'm a rambler, I'm a seeker and we're gettin' weaker
A whole lot more likely to fall.

We're tired of the rocks and brambles
Those barbed wire fences at all
We're lookin' for a homelife and clean smellin' sheets
And all the soft places to fall...

Opportunity To Cry Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Pancho & Lefty

Just watch the sunrise on the other side of town
Once more I've waited and once more you've let me down
This would be a perfect time for me to die
So I'd like to take this opportunity to cry.

You gave your word now I return it to you
With this suggestion as to what you can do
Just exchange the words I love you for goodbye
While I take this opportunity to cry.

I'd like to see you but I'm afraid
That I don't know wrong from right
And if I saw you would I kiss you
Or want to kill you out of sight.

It's been a long night so I think I'll go home
And feed my nightmares they've been waiting all night long
They'll be the last ones to tell me goodbye
They'll give me many opportunities to cry.

Well, I'd like to see you but I'm afraid
That I don't know wrong from right
And if I saw you would I kiss you
Or want to kill you out of sight...

I can make it for a day or two without you
And maybe I can make it through the night
I can smoke I can drink and probably be alright until morning
But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life.

I've got things that I can do
I've got places I can go to this evening
I've got whiskey I can drink
That'll help me not to think about you leaving
Yes I can smoke and I can drink
Probably be alright till morning
But what am I gonna do with the rest of my life.

In our bedroom there's a portrait done in different shades of gray
That I painted out before you broke my heart
In the scatch we're arm in arm but in the background there's a storm
And it soon become and tear my world apart.

And before my days are over I'm gonna try my hand again
Do a portrait like I wanted life to be
Put some flowers on the ground and color springtime all around
And paint the bed of roses just for me.

I'm gonna paint me a bed of roses
One without one single cloud in a big blue sky
Yeah I'm gonna paint me a bed of roses
Where love and patience never die...

Someday When Things Are Good Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : That's The Way Love Goes

Someday when things are good, I'm gonna leave you.
I can't seem to go when things are bad.
I'll be one more love that you can dream about,
And one more man that you can say you've had.

You'll always be the kind to dream of yesterday.
And a way of life I never understood.
And someday soon I'll be just one more memory.
And you'll call my name when things are not so good.

Someday when things are good, I'm gonna leave you.
I can't seem to go when things are bad.
I'll be one more love that you can dream about,
And one more man that you can say you've had.

That's The Way Love Goes Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : That's The Way Love Goes

I've been throwing horseshoes over my left shoulder
I've spent most all my life searching for that four-leafed clover
Yet you ran with me chasing my rainbows
Honey, I love you too and that's the way love goes.

That's the way love goes, babe, that's the music God made
For the whole wide world to sing it never gets old, it grows
Losing makes me sorry, you say "Honey, now don't worry."
Don't you know I love you too and that's the way love goes.

Thats the way love goes, babe, that's the music God made
For the whole wide world to sing it never gets old, it grows
Losing makes me sorry, you say "Honey, now don't worry."
Don't you know I love you too and that's the way love goes...

Carryin' Fire Lyrics

Album : That's The Way Love Goes

I remember you loved me with all of your heart
And I know your's as well as my own
I know you still need me and you're out there somewhere
And maybe you're cold and alone.

I'm carryin' fire carryin' fire
Burning for you a raging desire
I'm out of control the flame's ever high
But what can I do I'm burning for you carryin' fire.

Months slowly circle flickering candle
A fire is all you can see
If love is the feeling with one for the other
Then surely you're looking for me.

I'm carryin' fire carryin' fire
Burning for you a raging desire
I'm out of control the flame's ever high
But what can I do I'm burning for you carryin' fire...

Since we first said I love you it's been twenty years tonight
I moved by and love refused to go
It seems like only yesterday or maybe just last summer
Most of all a year or so ago.

Don't seem like we've been together all our lives
Don't seem like we've been settled down since we got out of school
I'd have thought we'd still love each other when twilight years arive
Don't seem like we've been together all our lives.

The baby came in April of 1964
She'd look like me but still she favour you
I can't believe the years have already come and gone
Seem like everything we own is nearly new.

Don't seem like we've been together all our lives
Don't seem like we've been settled down since we got out of school
I'd have thought we'd still love each other when twilight years arive
Don't seem like we've been together all our lives.

If You Hated Me Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : That's The Way Love Goes

You must have been mad at me when you said I'm in love with you
And you made me believe in you and that you wanted me
If you really had love in mind and it hurtin' me all this time
I wonder what you would do if you hated me.

If love causes this much pain and revenge really played no part
And you're about to break my heart when you're through with me
You must have been mad at me when you said I'm in love with you
And I wonder what you would do if you hated me.

You must have been mad at me when you said I'm in love with you
And you made me believe in you and that you wanted me
If you really had love in mind and it hurtin' me all this time
I wonder what you would do if you hated me...

Love Will Find You Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : That's The Way Love Goes

You can't hide yourself away from the problems of today
You can't hide yourself at night just turn off the bedroom light
And you can't try to hide your feelings they'll be heavy on your mind
You can't hide yourself from love
'Cause love will come and find you everytime.

All our lives And if you're fighting with love you have no way to win
You might as well go on give on in
And through the years I've come to know love commands
and love is never blind
You can't hide yourself from love love will come and find you everytime.

If you're fighting with love you have no way to win
You might as well go on give on in
And through the years I've come to know love commands

I Think I'll Stay Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : That's The Way Love Goes

Could be holding you tonight
Could be doing wrong or doing right
You don't care about what I think
I think, I'll just stay here and drink

Hey, putting you down won't square the deal
A least you'll know what I feel
Hey, take all the money in the bank
I think, I'll just stay here and drink

Hey, listen close and you can hear
That loud jukebox playing in my ear
Ain't no woman gonna change the way I think
I think, I'll just stay here and drink

Hey, hurtin' me know don't mean a thing
Since love ain't here I don't feel a thing
My mind ain't nothing but a total blank
I think, I'll just stay here and drink

Let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Let's play the games we played on our wedding night
To lock and bolt the door is only right
Let's chase each other 'round the room tonight

Seems like lately people love to play with fire
And the other games they play are just as bad
I'd rather stay at home and feel your burning lips
And play the kind of games that make me glad

Oh, let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Let's play the kind of games we played on our wedding night
To lock and bolt the door is only right
Let's chase each other 'round the room tonight

Let's don't chase around and make each other weary
Let's keep all our love at home and out of sight
Let's leave everything like jealousy behind us
And let's chase each other 'round the room tonight

Oh, let's chase each other 'round the room tonight
Let's play the games we played on our wedding night
And to lock and bolt the door is only right
Honey, let's chase each other 'round the room tonight

A Place To Fall Apart Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : It's All In The Game

I'll Prob'ly Never See You Eye To Eye A-gain
This Letter's Meant To Be My Last Fare-well
But You Need To Under-stand I'm Nearly Crazy
You Need To Know My Life Has Gone To Hell

Write Me Back And Tell Me Why It Ended
Send A Letter That I Can Show My Heart
I'll Be Somewhere Between I Love You And What You're Feeling Now
Lookin' For A Place To Fall A-part

Looking For A Place To Fall A-part
Trying To Find A Place That I Can Leave My Heart
I Need To Be Somewhere Hidin' When I Feel The Teardrops Start
Lookin' For A Place To Fall A-part

I Can't Seem To Justify Your Leavin' Me
I'm Be-wildered As To How It All Came Down
I Thought Everything Was Fine Until Your Phone Call
The Call That Turned My World A-round

Send Me Word And Tell Me Why It Ended
I Need Some Final Proof To Show My Heart
I'll Be Somewhere Between I Love You And What You're Feelin' Now
Lookin' For A Place To Fall A-part

It's All In The Game Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : It's All In The Game

Many a tear has to fall
But it's all in the game
All in the wonderful game
That we know has love.

You have words with him
And your future's looking dim
But these things
Your heart can rise above.

Once in a while he won't call
But it's all in the game
Soon he'll be there at your side
With a sweet bouquet.

And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waiting fingertips
And your heart, your heart will fly away.

Once in a while he won't call
But it's all in the game
Soon he'll be there at your side
With a sweet bouquet.

And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your waiting fingertips
And your heart, your heart will fly away...

Natural High Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : It's All In The Game

You stayed with me thru thick and thin
You watched me lose, you watched me win
You picked me up off of the ground
You never one time let me down
And you put me on a natural high
And I can fly, I can fly

I was drowning in a sea of make-believe
As helpless as a falling leave
You gave your hand to me that day
And you did it, 'cause you're made that way
And you put me on a natural high
And I can fly, I can fly

You always seem to let your feelings show
You love me and you let me know
Darling just remember these three words
I love you, I love you, I love you
And you put me on a natural high
And I can fly, I can fly
And you put me on a natural high
And I can fly, I can fly

Thank Heaven For Little Girls Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : It's All In The Game

Each time a see a little girl about
Five or six or seven
I can't resist the joyous urge
To smile and say.

Thank heaven for little girls
'Cause little girls get bigger every day
Thank heaven for little girls
They grow up in the most delightful way.

Thoir little eyes so helpless and appealin'
Someday will flash and have you crashin' thru the ceilin'.

Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for them all,
No matter where no matter who
Without them what would little boys do?

Tell me boys

Thoir little eyes so helpless and appealin'
Someday will flash and have you crashin' thru the ceilin'.

Thank heaven for little girls
Thank heaven for them all
No matter where no matter who
Without them what would little boys do?

Without them what would little boys do?

To all the girls I've loved before
Who have wandered in and out my door
I'm glad they came along, I dedicate this song
To all the girls I've loved before.

To all the girls the I caressed
And may I say I've held the best
For helping me to grow, I owe a lot I know
To all the girls I've loved before.

The winds of change are always blowing
And every time I try to stay
The winds of change continue blowing
And they just carry me away.

To all the girls who shared my life
Who now are someone else's wives
They live wirthin my heart, I'll always be a part
Of all the girls I've loved before.

The winds of change are always blowing
And every time I try to stay
The winds of change continue blowing
And they just carry me away.

To all the girls I've loved before
Who have wander in and out my doors
For helping me to grow, I owe a lot I know
To all the girls we've loved before...

Chill Factor Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chill Factor

Seems like every November
When the weather gets bad
I start to remember
all the good times we had
the long nights get longer
I Wish an friend would come by
The forecast is zero
And the chill factors high

you know the chill factors higher
On a cold windy day
but theres no wind this morning
And no wind on the way
Theres a snowstorm inside me
With record high wind
And I'm colder this morning
Than I've ever been

Seems like every November
When the weather gets bad
I start to remember
The good love we had
And the long nights get longer
Wish an old friend would drop by
The forecast is zero
And the chill factors high

Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Star Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chill Factor

Twinkle, twinkle lucky star
Can you send me luck from where you are

Can you make a rainbow shine that far
Twinkle, twinkle lucky star.

Can you really make a wish come true
And do you shine on just a chosen few

Is it over, have I gone to far
Twinkle, twinkle lucky star

Like two ships on the ocean, we drifted apart
And you found an island at sea

I'm still adrift with this pain in my heart
Won't you send her sweet love back to me

Twinkle, twinkle lucky star

Twinkle, twinkle lucky star
Can you send me luck from where you are

Can you make a rainbow shine that far
Twinkle, twinkle lucky star.

Man From Another Time Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chill Factor

I lost a woman
I believe to be perfect for me
You could replace her
But you're so much younger than me

Our lives are so different
Our music is not the same kind
It's like we're just out of focus
With no way to bring us in line

I'm like a man from another time
I'm old fashion music, I'm old fashion wine
Pilgrim like Jesus with no way to find
I'm like a man from another time

I may be a reincarnated
From a soldier who died in some war
With our thirty year difference
It's like I was born in some lifetime before

I'm old fashion music, I'm old fashion wine
I'm like a man from another time

Maybe reincarnated
From a soldier who died in some war
With our thirty year difference
I'm like born in some lifetime before

I'm old fashion music, I'm old fashion wine
I'm like a man from another time
I'm like a man from another time

We Never Touch At All Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chill Factor

We're caught in a trap like prisoners in a cage
Growing old from hate not from age
The runnin' love we had is down to crawl
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all

You go out with someone else while I'm out with someone too
Yet we come back to prison when we're through
Why don't we just stay out? But we still can climb the wall
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all

Are we afraid that we'll wind up along?
Is this the tide that keeps us hanging on?
Why don't we just stay out while we still can climb the wall?
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all

Are we afraid that we'll wind up along?
Is this the tide that keeps us hanging on?
Why don't we just stay out while we still can climb the wall?
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all, at all

You Babe Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Chill Factor

Sometimes this ol' world's a drag, it really puts me down
I try so hard but nothin' comes around
Then I look up to find that I've no reason to be blue
I've already found the whole wide world with you

And if there's nothin' else I do
To spend my whole life through
Lovin' you, babe, you babe
I'll always be in command
Just as long as I'm the man
Lovin' you, babe, you babe

And I can stand real tall
Stand up to it all lovin' you, baby, just you

One time this old rocky road block was just too tough
I felt like sayin', "Lord, I've had enough?
Then I heard something special that a deaf man couldn't miss
I heard it in the whisper of your kiss

And if there's nothin' else I do
To spend my whole life through
Lovin' you babe, you babe
I'll always be in command
Just as long as I'm the man
Lovin' you babe, you babe

And I can stand real tall
Stand up to it all lovin' you, baby, just you
Lovin' you babe, you babe

The pieces are all falling together
The picture is coming in view
When I thought the end was upon me
I found my purpose in you

And let the power that made
Help me to prosper and be fair in all things that I do
The love I've been needin' I just found in your heart
And I'm thanking the good Lord for you

Yeah, I'm thanking the good Lord for you
I'm thanking the good Lord for you
Let the power that made you
Help me to prosper and be fair in all things that I do
The love I've been needin' I just found in your heart
And I'm thanking the good Lord for you

I'm thanking the good Lord for you

Hey, let the power that made me
Help me to prosper and be fair in all things that I do
The love I've been needin' I just found in your heart

Out Among The Stars Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Out Among The Stars

It's midnight at a liquor store in Texas.
Beneath the neon, close up's just begun.
When a boy walks in the door and points a pistol.
He can't find a job, but man, he's found a gun.

But a change of heart before there's confrontation.
Let's the old man live and run out in the street.
But he knows that soon they'll come with guns a blazing.
And already he can feel a great relief.

Oh how many travelers get weary,
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
And fly like eagles out among the stars.

He pictures the arrival of the cruisers.
Sees that old familiar anger in their eyes.
He knows that when they're shooting at this loser,
They'll be aiming at the daemons in their lives.

Oh how many travelers get weary,
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
And fly like eagles out among the stars.

The evening news it carries all the details.
He dies in every living room in town.
And in his home a bottle's thrown in anger.
And his father cries, "We'll never live this down."

Oh how many travelers get weary,
Bearing both their burdens and their scars,
Don't you think they'd love to stop complaining,
And fly like eagles out among the stars.
Oh-Oh, and fly like eagles out among the stars.

My Life's Been Grand Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Out Among The Stars

My life's been grand
I been a hand at livin' it up all the way
I've had good times and bad times
And hard times and done time
But life's been a blessing every day.

My life's been grand
You know I'd write home and tell 'em
But they wouldn't believe
How good my good luck's been
And if it ended today
Hell, I've been all the way
My life's been grand.

My life's been grand
I'd know I'd write home and tell 'em
But they wouldn't believe
How good my good luck's been
And if it ended today
I've been all the way
My life's been grand.

My life's been grand...

Love Keeps Hanging On Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Out Among The Stars

Lately I've been losin' the darkness in my head
The years are catchin' up with you and me but we don't care
We're growin' old together but we won't be along
In lots of ways we've fallen off but love keeps hangin' on

Lately I've been watchin' the strength of time unwind
The years are catchin' up with you and me but we don't mind
We're growin' old together but we won't, we won't be along
In lots of ways we've fallen off but love keeps hangin' on

We still love to dance a slow three quarter time
But my old age won't climb the hills they used to climb
I could be mistaken but our tender years are gone
In lots of ways we've fallen off but love keeps hangin' on

I could be mistaken but our tender years are gone
In lots of ways we've fallen off but love keeps hangin' on

Love Don't Hurt Everytime Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Out Among The Stars

Love don't hurt every time
Sometimes love can be kind
So don't turn away from these arms of mine
Love don't hurt every time

Love has a mind of its own
Sometimes it's one way alone
This time could be that once in a lifetime
This feeling we feel comin' on

Love don't hurt every time
Sometimes love can be kind
So don't turn away from these arms of mine
Love don't hurt every time

So don't turn away from these arms of mine
Love don't hurt every time

Pennies From Heaven Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Out Among The Stars

Every time it rains, it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven.

You'll find your fortunes falling
All over town
Make sure that your umbrella
Is upside down.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me.

Every time it rains, it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven.

You'll find your fortunes falling
All over town
Make sure that your umbrella
Is upside down.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me.

Almost Persuaded Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : Out Among The Stars

Last night, all alone in a barroom
I met a girl with a drink in her hand
She had ruby red lips and coal black hair
And a smile that would tempt any man.

Then she came and sat down at my table
And as she placed her soft hands on mine
I found myself wanting to kiss her
For temptation was flowing like wine.

And I was almost persuaded
To strip myself of my pride
Almost persuaded
To push my conscience aside.

Then we danced and she whispered
I need you take me away from here and be my man
Then I looked into her eyes and I saw it
The reflection of my wedding band.

And I was almost persuaded
To let strange lips lead me on
Almost persuaded but your sweet love
Made me stop and go home...

Broken Friend Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : 5:01 Blues

I left, out of Tucson, with no destination in mind.
I was runnin' from trouble and the jail-term the Judge had in mind.
And the border meant freedom, a new life, romance,
And that's why I thought I should go,
And start my life over on the seashores of old Mexico.

My first night in Juarez, lost all the money I had.
One bad senorita made use of one innocent lad.
But I must keep on runnin'; it's too late to turn back:
I'm wanted in Tucson, I'm told.
Yeah, an' things'll blow over on the seashores of old Mexico.

Two Mexican farmers en route to a town I can't say,
Let me ride on the back of a flatbed half-loaded with hay.
Down through Durango, Colima, Almiera,
Then in the Manzanillos,
Where I slept on the seashores of old Mexico.

After one long siesta, I came wide awake in the night.
I was startled by someone who shadowed the pale moonlight.
My new-found companion, one young senorita,
Who offered a broken hello,
To the gringo she found on the seashores of old Mexico.

She spoke of Sonora and swore that she'd never return,
For her Mexican husband, she really had no great concern.
'Cause she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo:
That's all I needed to know.
Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico.

Yeah, she loved the gringo, my red hair and lingo:
That's all I needed to know, ha, ha.
Yeah, I found what I needed on the seashores of old Mexico.

5:01 Blues Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : 5:01 Blues

I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, missin' you
I got these 5:01 blues

I used to watch that old clock on the wall
Wishin' I could make time fly
But ever since you walked out on me
Quittin' time just make me wanna cry

I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, lovin' you
I've got these 5:01 blues

I could go out and find somebody new
I'd only spoil her fun
My mind still says that it's time to love you
When the clock says the workday is done

I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, missin' you
I've got these 5:01 blues

I got those 5:01 blues another work day is over
Time to go home but no one to go home to
That whistle just blew bad news
And I'll punch out and put in
Another long night again, missin' you
I've got these 5:01 blues

[Spoken:]
Oh man, I got no place to go
No one to go to [fade]

Wouldn't That Be Something Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : 5:01 Blues

Wouldn't that be something
If I spread my wings and showed you I could fly away?
Wouldn't that be something
If I ask you to fly with me on some wild and windy day?
Wouldn't that be something
If we both fell together and you threw your arms
Around me like you needed me
Wouldn't that be something? Hey, wouldn't that be something?
You'd probably laugh if you could see the dream I had last night
You and I together on a maiden rocket flight
You were seated there beside me with that happy frightened look
You and I got young again on that rocket flight we took
Now wouldn't that be something
If you could look at me and see somebody prayed again?
Wouldn't that be something
If you should sang to me today I started loving you again?
Wouldn't that be something
If we could look inside each other's minds
And always find each other when we needed to?
Wouldn't that be some thing? Wouldn't that be some thing?
Now wouldn't that be something
If you could look at me and see somebody prayed again?
Wouldn't that be something
If you should sang to me today I started loving you again?
Wouldn't that be something
If we could look inside each other's minds
And always find each other when we needed to?
Wouldn't that be some thing? Wouldn't that be some thing?
Wouldn't that be some thing? Wouldn't that be some thing?
Wouldn't that be some thing? Wouldn't that be some thing?
Now wouldn't that be some thing? Now wouldn't that be some thing?

Sea Of Heartbreak Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : 5:01 Blues

The lights in the harbor
Don't shine for me
I'm like a lost ship
Adrift out on the sea.

Oh, the sea of heartbreak, lost love an' loneliness
Memories of your caress, so divine
I wish you were mine again, my dear
I am on this sea of tears
Sea of heartbreak.

Oh why did I lose you
Oh, where did I fail
Why did you leave me
Always to sail?

This sea of heartbreak, lost love an' loneliness
Memories of your caress, so divine
How I wish you were mine again, my dear
I am on this sea of tears
Sea of heartbreak.

Oh, what I'd give to sail back to shore
Back to your arms once more.

Come to my rescue
Come here to me
Take me and keep me
Away from the sea.

Oh, sea of heartbreak, lost love an' loneliness
Memories of your caress, so divine
How I wish you were mine again, my dear
I'm on this sea of tears
Sea of heartbreak.

A Better Love Next Time Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : 5:01 Blues

[Spoken:]
Got a call tonight
Sayin' we could still be friends
What a way to say goodbye
What a way to end
They say the darkest hour
Is just before dawn
So I'll just hold my head up
And try to sing my song

Better love next time
Just don't let me lose my mind
All I need's a real friend
To pick me up again
I gotta shake these memories
If there's another chance for me
I'll be lookin' for a sign
Won't someone help me find
A better love next time

I could sit around and hurt forever over you
But in my heart I know you're really gone
There must be a reason for the pain I'm goin' through
Telling me I'm not where I belong

Better love next time
Just don't let me lose my mind
All I need's a real friend
To pick me up again
I gotta shake these memories
If there's another chance for me
I'll be lookin' for a sign
Won't someone help me find
A better love next time

Just as soon as I am strong
I'll be movin' on
To a better love next time

If You Want To Be My Woman Lyrics

Artist : HAGGARD, MERLE
Album : 5:01 Blues

You like ridin' in the country in my Cadillac
The way I try to kiss you keep you on and pushin' me back
You said you like a party you own the money that I earned
You refused to give me something equal in return.

Don't look at me
Like maybe you don't understand
If you wanna be my woman then you know
You've got to let me be your man.

Well, you said you're from the country but I know it ain't true
You try to play it smart and look so innocent too
You say I need a ring to get the loving that I need
Can't you give me just a simple

Don't look at me
Like maybe you don't understand
If you wanna be my woman then you know
You've got to let me be your man...
