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 was born the runnin' kind
With leavin' always on my mind
Home was never home to me at any time
Every front door found me hopin'
I would find the back door open
There just had to be an exit
For the runnin' kind

Within me there's a prison
Surrounding me alone
As real as any dungeon with its walls of stone
I know runnin's not the answer
Yeah, but runnin's been my nature
And a part of me
That keeps me movin' on

I was born the runnin' kind
With leavin' always on my mind
Home was never home to me at any time
Every front door found me hopin'
I would find the back door open
There just had to be an exit
For the runnin' kind

I was born the runnin' kind
With leavin' always on my mind
Home was never home to me at any time
Every front door found me hopin'
I would find the back door open
There just had to be an exit
For the runnin' kind
