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 »

 Struggling with Wake Up? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

Wake up, don't just lay there like cold granite stone 
Wake up, we're too close to be alone 
Wake up, and please, darling, hold me if you would 
Don't just lay there like you've gone away for good 

There's too many empty pages with so many things in store 
I can't believe it's over and you've closed the final door 
And I'm not prepared to handle these things we're going through 
I wish God would grant me just one more night with you 

Wake up, don't just lay there like cold granite stone 
Wake up, we're too close to be alone 
Wake up, and please, darling, hold me if you would 
Don't just lay there like you've gone away for good 

Without you I'll feel worthless, like a bell that doesn't ring 
And I know you hear me talkin', yet you haven't heard a thing 
And I can't stand it all much longer, I'd go crazy without you 
I wish God would grant me just one more night with you 

Wake up, don't just lay there like cold granite stone 
Wake up, we're too close to be alone 
Wake up, and please, darling, hold me if you would 
Don't just lay there like you've gone away for good 
Don't just lay there like you've gone away for good
