I Met Merle Haggard Today

Album: Behind This Guitar (2016)
  • I spent the morning pouring concrete
    I had a good hot plate of chicken for lunch
    Filled the tank cause it was empty
    Had a few errands to run
    And I know what your thinkin
    That sounds a little bit mundane
    But just wait... I met Merle Haggard Today

    My buddy called and said Haggard's in town to tape the Marty Stuart show
    So meet me at the back door down in NorthStar studios
    2/4 2013 4:45 was the time and date
    Hey I met Merle Haggard today

    Oh what was I thinking
    Should have took a picture with my phone
    Or a least record him singing 'pleasure to meet you Mo'
    But it was over in a second
    Then he strolled down to the stage
    But it's ok, 'cause I met Merle Haggard today
    At least I can say, I met Merle Haggard today Writer/s: Mo Pitney, Donald R Sampson
