Last night we had a hell raisin' time
Nippin' on tequila and suckin' on limes
Sunrise chased the good time away
And good morning would have been the wrong thing to say
'Cause the poundin' in the top of my head
Hey didn't leave me any too soon
I can't say we've had a good morning
But babe it's been a great afternoon

Well you nursed me through the morning while I was really down
Then one rowdy afternooner got me up and around
Yes last night we had one hell raisin' time
But today won't be forgotten too soon
I can't say we've had a good morning
Oh but babe it's been a great afternoon, yes sir

Well you nursed me through the morning while I was really down
Then one rowdy afternooner got me up and around
Yes last night we had one hell raisin' time, he he
But today won't be forgotten too soon
I can't say we've had a good morning
But dang it's been a great afternoon

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 »
