What happened to Merle

Written By: perry ivy

I yous't to hear him sing a song
about rambling fever, caroline and the big city too. I think I'll stay here and drink is one of my favorite tunes. I guess he finally found a reason to quit and I just have to say the good times may be over for good cause the good he just rode away, And now were heading down hill like a snow ball headed for hell o merle had it right I think he saw the light coming from his prision cell, those songs we sing now don't make that much sense and one question remains what happened to Merle did we take him for granted somewhere he died along the way. There once was a time that songs came with a rhymn and a meaning that came from the heart, words that meant sonething like fishing and hunting love and falling apart. I guess time really changes all it pertains to and it answers a question of mine, I guess they couldn't make it through december and Merle went out of his mind. Cause now were heading down hill like a snow ball headed for hell, o Merle had it right I see the light coming from his prision cell, those songs we sing now don't make that much sense and one question remains what happened to Merle did we take him for granted somewhere he died along the way, yes we took o Haggard for granted and country is the one that will pay.
