By Deana, in memory of Merle Haggard

“Are the Good Times Really Over?”
“The Okie from Muskogee” said “What Am I Gonna Do”? “The Fightin’ Side of Me” has got “Ramblin’ Fever” and “Here Comes the Freedom Train”!
So with “Hungry Eyes” he said, “Jesus, Take a Hold” of my hand, because I’m “Movin’ On”. “A Working Man Can’t get Nowhere Today” so “Sing Me Back Home”.
The “Branded Man”s not “Going Where the Lonely Go”, someday soon he’ll be wearing “Silver Wings” and walking through the “Swinging Doors” of that “Big City” far far beyond the “Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star”s, because “That’s The Way Love Goes”.
“My Favorite Memory” of Merle Haggard was him tellin’ us don’t “Sing a Sad Song”, because “I Take a Lot of Pride in Who I Am” and “I Had a Beautiful Time”!
