Lyrics

Feelin' Like Merle, Livin' Like Hank

Written By: Shannon Kempson

Feelin’ Like Merle, Livin” Like Hank

chorus
Feelin’ like Merle, livin’ like Hank,
Takin’ my life drink after drink,
Smoke filled bars,
Swingin’ doors.
Gettin’ drunk,
Fall on the floor.
Well, I’m so lonesome I could cry,
Your cheatin’ heart tore me up inside.
Oh mercy me,
Lord help me think.
She’s got me feelin’ like Merle, livin’ like Hank.

1st verse
Oh, these long gone, lonesome blues
Has left me with a tear in my beer.
I feel like a lonesome fugitive whose life has turned to wasted years.
Lord, she’s made me a ramblin’ man,
Now all I got is this heartache on my hands.
Oh, bartender pour me another drink,
She’s got me feelin’ like Merle, livin’ like Hank.

measure

2nd verse
Just take a look and see
What your cold, cold heart has done to me.
To a life of gin and misery,
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.
I’m a branded man by the blues.
Lord I know just what I’m gonna do,
Goin’ down to the river, jump in and sink.
She’s got me feelin’ like Merle, livin’ like Hank.

chorus
Feelin’ like Merle, livin’ like Hank,
Takin’ my life drink after drink,
Smoke filled bars,
Swingin’ doors.
Gettin’ drunk,
Fall on the floor.
Well, I’m so lonesome I could cry,
Your cheatin’ heart tore me up inside.
Oh mercy me,
Lord help me think.
She’s got me feelin’ like Merle, livin’ like Hank.

Oh mercy me,
Lord help me think.
She’s got me feelin’ like Merle, livin’ like Hank.
