Merle was in Bakersfield the other day and the city was naming a street after him. I was at the ceremony, but when I tried to grab an autograph after the show, Merle stole my pen. The whole story is contained here in this new song I penned. I know Merle won't end up in the pen again, not for stealing a pen but by stealing my pen, he helped me to pen this.

By the way, Merle was released from San Quentin the day I was released from my mother's womb. There's got to be another song in there somewhere.



It was a day

like any other

except for one thing

it was the day

they named a street

after a man

who was a legend in this town



Chorus:
it was the day

Merle Haggard Drive

was named for the man and his legend

right near my house

just 'round the bend

it was the day Merle Haggard

stole my pen



I tried to get

his autograph

he grabbed my pen

and my Merle CD

but then his folks

pulled him away

he walked away

with my new pen

(chorus)

THEY SHOULD NAME A TOWN IN HIS HONOR, OR AT LEAST A PRISON. JUST JOKING HE IS THE GREATEST IN THE HISTORY OF COUNTRY MUSIC.

Glad to hear Bakersfield named something after Merle Haggard.

And when he sang how he'd never swim Kern River again, it is worth listening to, those under currents in the Kern River can make you disappear.
