Merle Haggard

Merle Ronald Haggard (born April 6, 1937) is an American country music song writer, singer, guitarist, fiddler and instrumentalist. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville Sound recordings of the same era. more »

I came close so close to failure 
I came close to living alone
I know the kids still love me and their mama 
But I came so close to losing my home

I felt small enough to drown in each teardrop
But big enough to admit I was wrong
When I think of what I've done the chill runs through me
'Cause I came so close to losing my home

I felt small enough to drown in each teardrop
But big enough to admit I was wrong
When I think of what I've done the chill runs through me
'Cause I came so close to losing my home
I came so close to losing my home
