We left home when were barely past eleven-teen 
We've been back and fourth and all around through hell and rain
I've loved you half of your life and Ill keep on loving you
But I can't change and live the way you want me to. 

We spent a lot of time out on the highway
Coming from some town we played along the way 
After thirty years and knowing me the way you do 
You know I can't change and live the way you want me to . 

That red bandana tied around your auburn hair 
You look like you ought to be somebody's wife somewhere
You ain't never going to be no bobby Mcgee but your trying to 
But I can't change and live the way you want me to 

Every time you leave the stage I know you've had your fill 
And I wonder why you grew up and why I never will 
Hey I'm forty-one today still going on twenty-two 
But I can't change and live the way you want me to 

That red bandana tied around your auburn hair 
You look like you ought to be somebody's wife somewhere
You ain't never going to be no bobby Mcgee but your trying to 
But I can't change and live the way you want me to 
I can't change and live the way you want me to

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 »
