The Lyrics

well, he wore tough leathered jeans
so low down and mean
on guitar, he cooked
twas way beyond compare
he sure could enchant, tell ya brother...woo
well, i saw merle haggard there

well he played for me
and i...i could see
that i loved his songs
he had a way with words
he sang tunes of trucks, dogs and mothers...woo
well, i saw merle haggard there

well, his voice went boom
right across that room
and he held those notes so fine

well, he sang through the night
and he strummed with all his might
and his voice stayed strong
oh how it roared and purred
and then with applause, he was smothered...woo
well, i saw merle haggard there

well, his presence loomed
just a bit ungroomed
i was held spellbound in time

well, he sang through the night
and he strummed with all his might
and his voice stayed strong
oh how it roared and purred
and then with applause, he was smothered...woo
well, i saw merle haggard there
well, i saw merle haggard there
well, i saw merle haggard there
